His girlfriend reportedly told police that Gordon beat her and refused to allow her to leave their shared home after a late-night argument, TMZ reported, citing local authorities.
Responding officers located Gordon at a clubhouse near his home where he was taken into custody, the police department said in a release.
It’s just the latest legal trouble to hit Gordon, who last year was ordered to pay $36 million to the Brown family estate following a wrongful death lawsuit.
That order followed Gordon being found legally responsible for Brown’s death, though he was never criminally charged.
Brown, who was the 22-year-old daughter of Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston, died after being found unconscious in a bathtub at a home shared with Gordon.
Her family has said her death followed an altercation with Gordon, who is accused of placing her in the tub and injecting her with a “toxic cocktail” of drugs.
In a disturbing twist, Brown’s mother was similarly found unconscious in a bathtub before her death five years ago.
Gordon is being held on $15,500 bond, according to the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office.
