Bobbi Kristina Brown had a minor legal hiccup three days prior to her hospitalization.
As Bobbi Kristina Brown fights for her life, news and gossip websites are uncovering all kinds of details about it. The daughter of Whitney Houston was discovered unconscious in a bathtub at her home earlier this week, so E!’s revelation that she had a warrant for her arrest issued three days prior to the event.
The warrant has since been dismissed.
The bench warrant was issued on January 28th. Signed by Alpharetta Municipal Court Judge Lee Whiteside, the warrant states that for failure to appear on Jan. 14, any bond paid had been forfeited and she would also be responsible for any further costs to the court.
Brown was originally wanted in court for an incident on Sept. 9, 2014. She was pulled over allegedly driving without a valid tag on her Lexus IS250. The maximum penalty she could have faced was having her vehicle impounded and being ordered to pay a fine of up to $2,500, according to the Daily Mail, which first reported the legal issue.
The issue seems unlikely to have anything to do with the tragic events of January 1st, beyond providing a new headline in the Bobbi Kristina Brown story. The warrant has since been dismissed, according to Alpharetta PD, via E!
"In light of recent events involving Ms Bobbi Kristina Brown, we are not focused on the warrant issue. In fact, we requested the court to recall the warrant and dismiss it—which they did," Police spokesman George Gordon said in a statement. "The important issue is we hope her friends and family find a measure of comfort during this difficult period."
