Nick Gordon’s Girlfriend Drops Charges After Claiming He Beat Her For Hours
Nick Gordon won’t face any legal action over claims that he beat up his girlfriend, Laura Leal, back in June. Reportedly, prosecutors have dropped charges against Gordon, who was held legally responsible for the death of then-girlfriend Bobbi Kristina Brown, because Leal told the judge directly she wanted the case shut down.
As previously reported, on June 10th, Gordon was arrested after an alleged altercation at their home in Arbor Lakes Apartments in Florida.
After the incident, Leal spoke out publicly, stating that she thought she could have ended up like Bobbi Kristina.
I’ve been reading the reports about Bobbi Kristina and I’m physically shaking. I read about her being isolated, her family not knowing where she was, the manipulation, the bullying – it’s the exact same thing. That could have been me. Only the Grace of God saved me.
Laura accused Gordon of pinning her to a bed and punching her for hours in a drink-and-drug-fueled rage. Police had wanted to charge him with felony false imprisonment.
Reportedly, Gordon’s girlfriend initially had been helpful with the police’s investigation. However, it said, ‘Leal became unhappy with the criminal justice process’ and wanted police to to drop the case. She submitted a written statement that she didn’t want to continue prosecution. She also wrote directly to the judge in charge of the case.
According to the document, she also began to make ‘statements that indicated further or conflicting accounts of the original incident’. She was also the only witness to the alleged incident.
However, the document notes that prosecutors
sought and obtained proof that sanctions requiring Mr Gordon to undergo a four hour Anger Management Course and a four hour Alcohol and Substance Abuse Course had been successfully completed prior to filing the notice of no prosecution.
No word as to why Leal no longer wants to seek legal action against Gordon.
