The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports that Kyle Norman, a member of the R&B group Jagged Edge, was arrested in Atlanta on Thursday (January 29) after an alleged attack on his fiancée.
According to the publication, Norman’s fiancée arrived at Atlanta Medical Center “with welts under her eyes, a golf ball-sized knot on her forehead, a cut to her nose and a blood clot in her right eye.”
Norman reportedly choked his fiancée with a scarf she was wearing and shoved her engagement ring down her throat. At one point, the 38-year-old singer stated that his fiancée “was gonna die today.”
“When I arrived. I was met by the victim who was visibly shaken,” an officer wrote in an email to the AJC. “She stated that she began to agree with things that he was saying in an attempt to calm him down. While doing that he turned around and walked away inside their loft and she ran and grabbed his cell phone and was able to run outside and awake a neighbor who let her inside.”
Norman’s fiancée was ultimately able to find safety at a neighbor’s house while Norman was caught running down a sidewalk near his residence by a police officer.
According to the police officer who made the arrest, Norman “was upset about his dad having cancer.” The Jagged Edge member is currently at a local jail on an aggravated assault charge.
In September of last year, Norman was involved in a brawl with fellow singer, Sisqo, while backstage at a concert in San Francisco, California. Video of the brief encounter can be found below.
