Bobbi Kristina Brown’s Ex-Fiance Nick Gordon Charged With Reckless Driving and Speeding, Mug Shot Released (PHOTO)
Just hours after Whitney Houston’s 19-year-old daughter totaled her car in just outside Atlanta, Georgia, her beau was arrested after a high-speed chase of his own when police put him in handcuffs and charged him with reckless driving and speeding for going a whopping 82 mph in a 35 mph zone.
“Due to the speed of the vehicle it took some distance to discover where he was going and to get him stopped,” Alpharetta Police Department PIO George Gordon told Celebuzz. “It was dangerous.”
According to a police statement, the arresting officer used a laser speed detection device on the North Point Parkway where Nick’s gray Chevrolet Camaro was traveling in the affluent, heavily populated corridor of medium to high end retail stores, malls and numerous dining venues.
George added that Nick — who was informally adopted by Houston — was cooperative and gave police no reason for his speeding, but added “there is no belief that alcohol or drugs were a contributing factor.”
The controversial couple got engaged earlier this year, which has been documented in Lifetime’s latest reality show, The Houstons: On Our Own.
Bobbi Kristina also lost control of her car yesterday while leaving her apartment complex in Alpharetta. According to reports, she drove over a curb, through several trees and into an embankment where she crashed. Luckily, she walked away uninjured.
These latest incidents come after the pair were both involved in a crash in Nick’s Camaro near their Georgia home on Sept. 26 when Bobbi Kristina was a passenger.
Nick was released on bail from North Fulton Alpharetta jail and is expected in court Feb. 12.
