Nick Gordon has been officially charged for battery after his arrest over the weekend, and even though his girlfriend didn’t want him charged, it seems prosecutors have decided to push forward.
According to Seminole County Court records, Nick Gordon was charged Monday with misdemeanor battery after being arrested for suspicion of domestic violence on his girlfriend. During the incident, he claimed his girlfriend was acting “crazy.”
As we previously reported, Laura Leal said she did not want Gordon prosecuted, but the responding officer observed swelling on her face and dried blood on her lip before cuffing the former boyfriend of the late Bobbi Kristina.
Gordon has already escaped prosecution once for allegedly beating up Leal, but it’s possible officials feel like they have now have a stronger case this time around.
He’s due in court in April.
