Nick Gordon, who was held legally accountable for the death of Bobby Kristina Brown in 2015, was taken into custody in Florida on Saturday for reportedly abducting and beating his current girlfriend.

The 28-year-old was arrested by law enforcement in Sanford, Florida, on Saturday after a complaint was filed by his live-in girlfriend, Laura Leal, 26.

The arrest report obTained by TMZ indicated Gordon assaulted Leal “by hitting and punching her with a closed fist” on Saturday morning.

Leal told authorities that she and Gordon went to dinner at Duffy’s Sports Bar in Lake Mary on Friday to watch Game 4 of the NBA Finals.

After the game, the couple went home, and a heated argument erupted sometime between 12:30 and 1 am.

“The argument became physical and lasted through the night,” the police report said.

Leal told police that she believed Gordon was angry because he thought she was trying to “hook up” with one of his friends.

She told investigators that Gordon had no reason to be jealous and that she had genuine feelings for him, although she did admit that the relationship was “toxic.”

She added that Gordon ordered her to “tell him the truth” about wanting to be with someone else.

When Leal told her boyfriend that she would not do that to him, he did not believe her.

Gordon struck Leal ‘by hitting and punching her in the face and the back of the head with a closed fist’ sometime between 12:30 am and 7:00 am on Saturday morning

She then told authorities that Gordon gave her the option of leaving.

When she agreed, Nick Gordon became violent.

“Gordon became upset and [started to] punch her and hit her and refused to let her leave,” the report added.

When Leal wanted to use her laptop to message her sister through Facebook, Gordon took it away.

Leal said she had no way of interacting with the outside world since Gordon smashed her phone a few weeks before the incident.

Gordon also hid his phone, so she would have no way of calling for outside help.

After dawn, Leal said she ran into his mother’s bedroom and woke her up.

When Michelle Gordon saw the injuries caused by her son, she helped get Leal out of the house and drove her to her sister’s house.

Carla Leal then drove her to the Sanford Police.

When police saw the injuries, they asked Carla Leal to take her sister to the hospital.

Gordon is facing a domestic violence battery charge, along with a charge of kidnapping and false imprisonment.

Photos of the victim obtained by TMZ show a number of black and blue marks on her upper arm and bicep, along with several discernible marks on her forearm.

Bobbi Kristina, the daughter of the late Whitney Houston and her husband, Bobby Brown, was just 22-years-old when she died two years ago.

Her death occurred six months after she slipped into a coma after Nick Gordon discovered her body immersed in a bathtub at the residence they shared.

The 26-year-old was found responsible for the death in a civil case.

Brown’s estate, which filed the lawsuit, accused Gordon of causing her death by providing her with a “toxic mixture” and that he stole from her bank account while she was in a coma.

Gordon has denied the accusations and said he tried to save his former girlfriend’s life.

Fulton County Superior Court Judge T. Jackson Bedford ruled against Gordon after neither Gordon nor his attorney attended a September hearing.
