A new report claims Bobbi Kristina Brown was in trouble with the law before she was found unresponsive in her bathtub on Saturday, Jan. 31.
‘The Daily Mail’ reports a warrant was put out for her arrest after the 21-year-old failed to appear in court for a traffic violation in mid-January. It was reportedly issued Jan 28, just days before she was placed in a medically induced coma.

A source tells ‘The Daily Mail’ the minor offense — which carried a maximum penalty of a $2,500 fine as well as having her car impounded — has since been dropped due to the current circumstances.
“I confirm the Alpharetta Department of Public Safety had an active warrant from Ms Bobbi Kristina Brown. The warrant was issued because she failed to show up for a mandatory court appearance after being cited for operating a motor vehicle with expired tag registration,” spokesman George Gordon said in a statement to ‘The Daily Mail.’

“The warrant was issued due to her failure to appear in court at the mandated date and time. 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.”

‘TMZ’ now reports police suspect foul play and are currently investigating her boyfriend, Nick Gordon, who they believe may have been involved.
Max Lomas — the friend who found Bobbi Kristina unresponsive in her bathtub — claims Nick allegedly cleaned up evidence and bloodstains before police arrived on scene last weekend.
Bobbi Kristina remains in a coma in Atlanta’s Emory University hospital.
