SANFORD, FL (CBS46) -

Nick Gordon, the former boyfriend of the late Bobbi Kristina, was taken into custody Saturday for allegedly beating his girlfriend. 

The Sanford Police Department responded to a home in the 800 block of Historic Goldsboro Boulevard in Florida in reference to a domestic incident. The female victim told police that her live-in boyfriend hit and punched her. 

Gordon, later identified as the suspect, was located at the local club house near the residence by authorities. He was charged with battery and false imprisonment.

In September, Gordon was ordered by a judge to pay the family of Bobbi Kristina more than $36 million after a wrongful death civil suit was filed against him. 

Bobbi Kristina Brown, 22, was hospitalized after she was found face down in a bathtub on Saturday, January 31 by her boyfriend Nick Gordon, a man originally thought to be her husband, and another friend.
