Cop: Bobbi Kristina cited for underage drinking but not arrested
It's got to be hard when your famous parents are always making the news for the wrong reasons.
And Bobbi Kristina Brown, daughter of Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston, has made her share of headlines, too.
But the latest reports of her arrest, sparked in part by a story in the National Enquirer, are wrong, Lt. James McGee with Roswell police told the AJC. Several other entertainment websites also published stories, some reporting that the 18-year-old could face jail time.
Bobbi Kristina was part of an incident involving two groups of teenagers about three weeks ago, McGee said. A gun was involved, but no shots were fired. The whole thing may have started as the result of problems between a boyfriend and girlfriend, McGee said.
"By the time officers arrived, everything had calmed down," McGee said Monday night. "... Nobody was taken into custody."
Citations were issued for the gun and underage drinking; Bobbi Kristina received an underage drinking citation, but was not arrested, he said. Those who were cited will have to answer the charges in court.
