Whitney Houston’s ‘Adopted Son’ Nick Gordon Arrested for Reckless Driving (REPORT)
Just hours she had totaled her Chevy Camaro in Alpharetta, Georgia Wednesday, her boyfriend and “adopted brother” Nick Gordon was arrested for reckless driving — going 82 in a 35-mile-per-hour zone.
According to TMZ, Gordon was pulled over while driving down Northpoint Parkway, a retail area with high pedestrian foot traffic.
“We are fortunate because that’s such a busy corridor with high end retail shopping retaurants and pedestrains at crosswalks,” a law enforcement officer said.
“At that speed, it’s absolutely reckless.”
Gordon’s arrest comes hot on the heels of news that Brown crashed her car into an embankment outside her apartment complex on the same day.
Upon arriving at the crash, officers found that Brown sustained no major injuries and was not under the influence of any drugs or alcohol at the time of the crash. However, the authorities did issue Brown a traffic citation for “failure to maintain lane.”
“@REALbkBrown and I are not engaged or dating. Just close like we have always been,” Gordon, 22, wrote on his Twitter Nov. 18.
On Monday, Brown cryptically tweeted about being off “on her own,” writing, ”I’m leaving , this this good ole town and driving to the send of the world . Maybe it’s beautiful there (: Xxxo … Who do I trust in this world? Pfft well that’s easy beezie, #Myself, No1 will kno’s me like ME&They’d rather not take thtchance2knoME, &2me.”
“That’s incredibly fine .. Because you’d be missing out on a #REALperson Xxo #armyofme #onmywon #goingtomakeit#determined,” she added. “I guess it’s time 4me2stop depending on anymore. It’s my time2follow what Mom&The Lord put out on this path for me. #Thankful. Mom xxo.”
The couple had announced their engagement in a promo for their reality TV series, The Houstons: On Our Own.
