Prosecutors move closer to charging Nick Gordon over his fiancée Bobbi Kristina's death after ANOTHER ex comes forward to accuse him of abuse
A frantic and combative Nick Gordon grabbed at a female officer, was incapable of answering basic questions and bragged about his fame during his arrest for domestic abuse back in March.
The video shot in Seminole County, Florida, opens with a female officer repeatedly telling Gordon to get off the phone before then informing him he cannot place his hands on her while they speak.
'Don't touch me, do not touch me. Get your hands off of me,' she tells Gordon.
She then asks Gordon multiple times to state his name, which he ignores before stating: 'I don't care. Like, I don't care. I want her to go please.'
'She flipped out,' claims Gordon.
Then, he is seen on camera stating: 'I'm a famous person, she's done this to me. I don't go to jail over things like this. My lawyer is Jose Baez.'
His story then falls apart when police see Leal's injuries.
Police noticed the injuries on Leal when they reported to the house following a 911 call from a hysterical Gordon made in the early morning hours, telling authorities that he was the victim of abuse.

DailyMail.com later obtained the two calls placed by Gordon just before he was arrested by police for battery on his girlfriend Laura Leal, who he punched multiple times in the face and chest according to an arrest report from the Seminole County Sheriff's Office.
Leal was left with a bloody lip after the attack, while Gordon, 29, had no visible injuries save for a small cut on his thumb.
Gordon, who was in a relationship with Bobbi Kristina Brown up until her death in 2015, was booked despite the fact that Leal refused to press charges.
He eventually strings together a few sentences about what happened after almost three minutes of questioning. 'She flipped out,' claims Gordon
Gordon was eventually released after posting $500 bond and Leal asked that charges not be pursued in the case.
'My girlfriend is acting insane,' said Gordon in his first 911 call, which lasted more than two minutes.
He seemed to have trouble speaking as he drew out his words, and there were a handful of long silent pauses.
Gordon also said at one point: 'She grabbed my penis.'

He then tried to recount what had happened that night but struggled to put together sentences and could not tell the dispatcher his address.

Leal also went after Gordon at one point as he could heard gasping in disbelief before he said: 'Oh my god, she ripped my shirt.'
The line went dead soon after but Gordon called back, this team speaking with authorities for over three minutes.
'I feel so lame cause I'm getting beat up by a woman,' said Gordon, who began sobbing less than a minute into the call.
Those histrionics got worse after Leal threw a bottle at Gordon.
'I feel so horrible,' Gordon sobbed over the phone.
'I feel so lame dude.'
Once police did arrive on the scene it was Gordon who found himself in handcuffs.
'Gordon stated that he just wanted Leal to leave his residence due to her ripping his shirt and throwing a bottle at him,' read the police report.
'Gordon stated that she attacked him for no reason and that she is "crazy." Gordon stated that he did not want to pursue any charges against [her] and again stated that he just wanted her to leave his residence. Gordon stated that he was not struck by the bottle but, did have a small cut on his left thumb.'
The focus quickly shifted however when the responding officers saw Leal, and her bloody lip.
'Leal stated that she was driving and Gordon then struck her in the right side of her cheek area several times,' stated the police report.
'Leal stated that he also pulled her hair and stated to her that he should make her wreck the vehicle. Leal stated that they then returned to his home and got into a verbal altercation.'
Gordon meanwhile said the same thing before, during and after his arrest.
'I didn`t hit her. She attacked me and ripped my shirt. She also threw a bottle at me. I just want her to leave my house,' Gordon told authorities.
He was handcuffed and taken to the John E. Polk Correctional Facility despite that claim, with the responding officers determining that Leal's bloody lip gave them probable cause in the case.
Gordon was previously arrested in June for battery and false imprisonment after Leal told police he pinned her to a bed and began to punch her while the two were living at his mother's home.
Leal later dropped those charges and told DailyMail.com that she was the aggressor in an exclusive interview.

Prosecutors are close to charging Nick Gordon over the death of Bobbi Kristina Brown after identifying two ex-girlfriends who can testify that he was a serial domestic abuser.
Gordon, 28, was held legally responsible for the 2015 death of Bobbi Kristina, Whitney Houston's daughter, in a civil case but has never faced criminal proceedings.
However DailyMail.com understands that investigators are 'increasingly confident' of bringing charges after identifying further 'victims' who can give accounts of his erratic, violent behavior.
They sought help from the first, 26-year-old Laura Leal, after Gordon was arrested earlier this month for allegedly holding her captive at his mother's Florida home and beating her.
Witness: Laura Leal, 26, claims Gordon beat her until she saw stars. Another woman is now telling prosecutors she was attacked too
Injuries: Laura Leal was left badly battered on her body. She told DailyMail.com Gordon pinned her to the bed and hit her repeatedly before she was able to escape, hitting him with a candle and apparently breaking his nose
Tragedy: Nick Gordon was the fiancé of Bobbi Kristina Brown until her death in a bath at the house they shared in Alfaretta, GA. He was not charged but held legally liable over her death. Now prosecutors are moving in on him
A second former flame then came forward after she read media reports of the alleged attack on Leal and said similarities in the way both women were allegedly abused by Gordon left her feeling 'physically sick'.
Her relationship with Gordon is said to date back to before the death of 22-year-old Bobbi Kristina, Houston's only child with the rapper Bobby Brown.
Investigators from Fulton County, Georgia, believe that demonstrating that Gordon has a years-long history of domestic abuse will significantly boost their case.
'Bobbi Kristina may no longer have a voice but these other women do,' a source with knowledge of the inquiry told DailyMail.com.
'They can tell a court exactly how he manipulated and bullied them. Their testimony could be the game-changer.'
Bobbi Kristina spent six months in a coma and never recovered after she was found submerged in a bathtub in January 2015 with drugs in her system and bruises to her chest.
Gordon, her fiancé, protested his innocence and insists he did everything he could to resuscitate the aspiring singer after finding her unconscious at their Alpharetta, Georgia home.
However he was held legally responsible for Bobbi Kristina's wrongful death and ordered to pay $36 million in damages when he failed to fight a civil case brought by her family last November.
A treble clef is carved into her tombstone. Coins, a small angel figurine and a small posy of fake flowers were all left at its foot. Bobbi Kristina died in July 2015 after spending months on life support following a drug overdose. Her death had eerie similarities to her mother who was found unconscious in her bathtub at the Beverly Hilton hotel in February 2012. The pair are seen (right) in 2011

Gordon now lives with his mother Michelle in Sanford, Florida, where he was arrested June 10 and charged with domestic violence battery and false imprisonment.
Leal, his live-in girlfriend of the past three months, told police he flew into a jealous rage and repeatedly punched her in the head after preventing her from leaving.
She escaped the night-long attack by striking him in the face with a decorative candle before bursting into his sleeping mother's bedroom to beg for protection.
In a subsequent interview with DailyMail.com Leal said the attack was the shocking conclusion to weeks of domestic abuse after Gordon seized control of her life by shutting out her family and destroying her phone.
'I've been reading the reports about Bobbi Kristina and I'm physically shaking,' she said.
'I read about her being isolated, her family not knowing where she was, the manipulation, the bullying - it's the exact same thing.'
Gordon denied hitting Leal - telling police he was the victim, not her - and did not comment further when he was released from jail last Tuesday on $15,500 bond.
Investigators from the Fulton County District Attorney’s office subsequently flew to Florida to speak with Leal, describing their conversation as 'fruitful' but not revealing what was discussed.
They were then contacted by the third alleged victim, who supplied photographs of her and Gordon and said she was prepared to support a prosecution.
'When she heard about what happened to Laura Leal she felt physically sick and knew it was time to finally come forward,' added the source.
'It's a brave thing of her to do and it could make all the difference.'
Bobby Kristina's death eerily mirrored the passing of her mother Whitney, who was found drowned in a bathtub in a Beverly Hills hotel in February 2012.
Cocaine abuse and heart disease were later established as factors that contributed to the superstar diva's death.
An autopsy on Bobbi Kristina similarly listed drug intoxication and the immersion of her face in the water as decisive factors.
Gordon was taken in by Houston at the age of 12 and considered Bobbi Kristina his 'Li'l Sis' before their relationship became romantic.
He was sued by her estate last year, accused of causing her wrongful death by giving her a 'toxic mixture' and also stealing from her bank account while she was comatose.
When neither he, nor his lawyer, showed up at a hearing last November, a Fulton County Superior Court judge ruled against him by default.
A spokesman for the Fulton County District Attorney’s office said: 'We have nothing further to release at this time.'
