According to new reports, three days before Bobbi Kristina Brown was found unresponsive in a bathtub at her Atlanta home, a judge had issued a bench warrant for her arrest after she failed to appear in court for a traffic violation hearing.
Signed by Alpharetta Municipal Court Judge Lee Whiteside, the warrant states that for failure to appear on January 14 any bond paid had been forfeited and Whitney Houston’s daughter would also be responsible for any further costs to the court, the Daily Mail reported.
The issue stemmed from Bobbi Kristina Brown being pulled over September 9, 2014, for 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.
Meanwhile, the warrant has since been dismissed, the Alpharetta Polic Department announced on February 6.
“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, according to the Daily Mail.
“The important issue is we hope her friends and family find a measure of comfort during this difficult period.”
Bobbi Kristina Brown, 21, remains on life support at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta.
