Nick Gordon was listening to Whitney Houston’s ‘I Will Always Love You’ when he was arrested.
The 'adopted' son of the late singer, who recently called off his engagement to Whitney's daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown, was taken into custody in Alpharetta, Georgia last Wednesday after allegedly being caught speeding through the town.
According to gossip website TMZ, had the singer’s classic tune blaring on his car radio at the time of his arrest.
Nick, 22, was charged with reckless driving and speeding and is due in court in February.
"We are fortunate because that's such a busy corridor with high end retail shopping restaurants and pedestrians at crosswalks," a law enforcement official said.
Nick's arrest came hours after Bobbi Kristina lost control of her Chevy Camaro when leaving her apartment complex and drove down an embankment before coming to a stop on a local park trail.
She was cited by police for "failure to maintain lane".
The crash is Bobbi's third in recent months. Earlier this month she accidentally struck Nick's Camaro with her own vehicle in the parking garage of the apartment complex, causing severe damage to the front of his sports car.
Bobbi had followed Nick back to their apartment in her own Camaro and as she tried to back into the parking space next to his, she struck his vehicle.Just weeks earlier Bobbi Kristina, 19 and Nick were involved in another crash that damaged his car.
The couple had been arguing at the time of the collision - which destroyed the entire front end of the vehicle - and Nick's Camaro was the only car involved. No one was injured.After the accident, the car was left without a front bumper and right front tire, and the airbags were deployed, but it somehow got back to the former couple's home.
