Dec. 20, 2010 — -- The ex-boyfriend of a Las Vegas showgirl who has been missing for more than a week had previously been arrested for abusing the dancer, and she may have been pregnant with his child, according to information from the Las Vegas police.

Debbie Flores-Narvaez, a 31-year-old burlesque dancer at the Luxor Casino's "Fantasy" show, hasn't been seen since she failed to show up for work on Dec. 13.

Her ex-boyfriend, Jason "Blu" Griffith, is cooperating with the current investigation into his ex-girlfriend's whereabouts and is not considered a suspect, police said.

Griffith was arrested on October 22 in Clark County, Nev.

He was charged with one count of domestic-violence-related battery, a misdemeanor, and one count of coercion, which is a felony, according to Officer Jay Rivera of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.

A police report of the incident said it started when Flores-Narvaez was visiting Griffith's ex-girlfriend.

The report says that Griffith stole Flores-Narvaez's iPhone. He drove away and she followed him in her car, and the two stopped and began to argue about the phone. He kicked her and pulled her hair, according to the report, which added that the dancer had bruises on her legs.

The report also said that a chunk of Flores-Narvaez's hair was recovered at the scene.

Responding officers wrote in their report that Flores-Narvaez said she'd been dating Griffith for one year and was pregnant with his child.

Griffith told police that he argued with the dancer, but denied any violence or taking her phone, the police report said.

"Bring her home. Let her go. Let us know something. What is it that you want?" Celeste Flores-Narvaez said in an open plea for her sister's return.
