Nick Gordon, the former boyfriend of Bobbi Kristina Brown, has been arrested again on charges of domestic battery.

According to TMZ, Seminole County, Fla., officers arrested Gordon this weekend after authorities say he hit his girlfriend in the face several times after she picked him up from a bar. According to the police report, the girlfriend also said that he pulled her hair and threatened to crash the car. Once they arrived home, another verbal altercation occurred, at which point Seminole County police were called to the couple’s house.

Because an officer saw visible marks on the girlfriend, Gordon was arrested despite her refusal to press charges.

The incident marks Gordon’s second domestic violence arrest in the last nine months.

Last summer, Gordon was charged with domestic violence battery and kidnapping for an assault involving the same girlfriend and allegedly refusing to let her leave his home during an argument. It wasn’t until the unnamed woman woke up Gordon’s mother, with whom they shared a home, that she said she was able to leave.

She refused to cooperate with police, and the charges were eventually dropped, Rolling Stone reports.

According to TMZ, there were rumors of domestic violence in Gordon and Brown’s relationship before her tragic death in 2015, when she was found unresponsive in a bathtub and died after months of being in a coma. Gordon was found “legally responsible” for her death in November 2016 after failing to appear at two wrongful death civil lawsuit hearings, and ordered to pay $36 million to her estate.

Following the decision, Gordon moved to Florida and was reportedly working as a landscaper.

He posted a $500 bail Sunday evening and is due to return to court April 6. He is facing one charge of “battery—touch or strike.”
