Whitney Houston’s daughter and her boyfriend are keeping Alpharetta police officers busy.
The same day that Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina was cited following a single-car wreck, authorities arrested Nick Gordon, Bobbi Kristina’s significant other.
Here are details from George Gordon (no relation), the Executive Officer and PIO for the Alpharetta Department of Public Safety:
“Last night around 6:39 p.m., an Alpharetta Department of Public Safety police officer assigned to the Traffic Enforcement Unit was operating a laser speed detection device on North Point Parkway in the city of Alpharetta. The North Point Parkway is an affluent corridor of medium to high end retail stores, malls and numerous dinning venues. The officer observed a gray Chevrolet Camaro traveling at a very high rate of speed. The officer used his laser speed detection device and obtained a tracking speed against the Camaro at 82 miles per hour in a 35 miles per hour zone.”
This prompted action, Officer Gordon explained.
“The danger lies in the fact this is a high vehicular and pedestrian traffic area. In a situation such as this, the department has a duty to take reasonable enforcement action to protect the public,” he said. “After intercepting the vehicle, the officer conducted a traffic stop against the vehicle. The driver identified as Nicholas David Gordon, male age 23, was arrested and subsequently cited for reckless driving and speeding. He was transported to the North Fulton Alpharetta jail Annex. An acquaintance of the arrestee was allowed to come to the scene and take custody of the vehicle.”
Nick Gordon has subsequently bonded out of jail, Officer Gordon said.
Krissy, as Bobbi Kristina is known in the Lifetime show about her family, may or may not be engaged to Nick. In one episode of the show, which launched after Houston’s death, Bobbi K giggles that the two are betrothed but it wasn’t clear how serious she was being.
