Nick Gordon Arrested For Beating And Kidnapping New Girlfriend

Nick Gordon, who was held legally responsible for the death of his girlfriend Bobby Kristina Brown in 2015, was arrested in Florida on for repeatedly punching his new girlfriend in the face in a fit of jealous rage and holding her captive in their home. 

Gordon, 28, was taken into custody by police in Sanford, Florida after a complaint was filed by his live-in girlfriend of two months, 26-year-old Laura Leal. He faces a domestic violence battery charge as well as a charge of kidnapping and false imprisonment of an adult. 

Gordon is alleged to have assaulted his girlfriend so severely that she needed to seek treatment at a hospital. Leal later appeared at a Sanford police station and filed a report claiming that she was beaten and not permitted to leave her house. Photos of the woman show a number of black and blue marks on her left upper arm and bicep region. There are also several discernible marks on her forearm.

Leal told investigators that she believed Gordon was upset because he suspected she was trying to 'hook up' with one of his friends at Duffy's.

She told police that Gordon had no reason to be jealous and that her feelings for him were genuine, though she did acknowledge that the relationship was 'toxic'. 

She said that Gordon insisted she 'tell him the truth' about wanting to be with another man.

When Leal told Gordon that she 'would never do that' to him, he did not believe her, the police report stated.

Gordon kept insisting that she admit to wanting to cheat on him and that he 'would not get mad'.

He 'just needed to know the truth,' according to Leal.

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

When she agreed, Gordon turned violent, she alleges.

'Gordon became upset and [began to] violently punch her and hit her and refused to let her leave,' according to the report.

When Leal wanted to use her laptop computer so that she could contact her sister through Facebook, Gordon took it away, according to police.

Leal said she had no way of communicating with the outside world since Gordon smashed her cell phone a few weeks prior to the incident on Saturday.
