A police report obtained by the Associated Press is revealing that Bobbi Kristina Brown, daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, was involved in a traffic accident that injured two people just days before she was found unresponsive in her Georgia home.
Brown, who was found face down in the bathtub by her alleged husband Nick Gordon and a friend on Jan. 31, is currently being observed at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta.
But just four days prior to the incident that landed her in the hospital, the 21-year-old lost control of her Jeep Liberty and blew out a tire, causing the vehicle to cross into oncoming traffic and collide with another.
From the Associated Press:
Police in the Atlanta suburb of Roswell described “extensive damage” to both vehicles. Brown’s passenger and the other car’s driver were hospitalized. Brown blamed tire failure, and officers found a nail in the Jeep’s blown-out right rear tire, the incident report says.
The collision wasn’t Brown’s first bout of trouble on the road. Both she and Gordon have been “cited for driving infractions.”
Police in Alpharetta cited her in November 2012 for failing to maintain her lane after the black Chevrolet Camaro she was driving landed in a ditch. No injuries were reported in that crash.
Gordon has also been cited for driving infractions. On Dec. 30, he was driving Brown’s Lexus and she was a passenger when police said Gordon rear-ended the car in front of him at a red light. Roswell police arrested him then on an unspecified Fulton County warrant.
Last August, Roswell police found Gordon with thick speech and droopy eyes at the scene of an overturned BMW, an incident report says. He was cited for failure to maintain his lane, driving under the influence of alcohol and driving with a suspended license.
And the incident that left her unresponsive — which is currently being investigated by authorities — wasn’t the first time police were called to Brown’s home. Just a week before she was rushed to the hospital, police were called to diffuse a domestic dispute.
On Jan. 23, a security guard at their gated community called 911 reporting a fight at Brown’s address. The guard said a neighbor reported people “hitting each other and swinging” outside the townhome. The guard did not describe the people involved, and no one was there when officers arrived.
On Wednesday, the anniversary of Whitney Houston’s death, aunt Pat Houston released a statement addressing Brown’s hospitalization:
“On this — the third anniversary of Whitney’s passing, our family continues to stand together praying that Bobbi Kristina continues to fight for her life. We thank you again for your continued prayers of love and restoration and we thank you for respecting the family’s privacy at this time.”
Though her condition remains largely unknown, another of Brown’s aunts, Leolah Brown, told Atlanta’s Fox 5 TV station that Bobbi was doing better.
“She’s opening her eyes. Krissi is doing well right now. She is.”
