Jagged Edge member, Kyle Norman is once again in trouble.
According to a Georgia police report obtained by Bossip, the singer was arrested for attempting to stab his son in an at-home altercation. Not so long ago, Norman was arrested in Jan 2015 for beating and shoving an engagement ring down his fiancee’s throat— which resulted in the loss of custodial rights of their foster daughter. He is currently serving 15 months on probation for that assault.
The couple went on Steve Harvey Show earlier this year to work through their marital issues, and while there he claimed this was the first time violence ad happened. Then in February of this year he was arrested and charged once again with battery and family violence—but in April, Norman made a deal where he pled guilty to disorderly conduct.
As reported by Vibe, the police report included the following: The singer’s wife, Merrika, was asleep at around 5 a.m., when she heard Norman fighting the son in another room and called the police. A cousin eventually restrained Norman but that attack reportedly continued as he “followed his son downstairs to the living room,” and “punched a wall” as he approached.
The police report also states that blood stains were found throughout the disheveled house, and that Norman was attempting to “clean up the area where the altercation took place,” as an officer tried to interview him. Norman purportedly told the cop, “Nobody[’s] going to talk to you, you need to get out of my house.”
The officer reported smelling a “strong odor” of alcohol on Norman’s breath. When questioned about the blood stains on his shirt, Norman told the cop that it was related to an earlier “motorcycle incident.” Additionally, Norman refused to allow his wife to speak with the officer, and locked the door.
“Ms Norman informed me that she does not feel safe with him and he has put his hands on her before,” states the police report.
The report goes on to reveal that Norman was “detained,” yet despite his arrest for domestic violence, battery, property damage and obstruction cruelty to children in the 3rd degree, a lawyer for the 40-year-old crooner says the story isn’t accurate. “At this point, there’s no formal charges, no disposition,” the lawyer told the site. “As far as we’re concerned, Mr. Norman is innocent of any wrongdoing.” The initial incident trigged a probation violation, leading to Norman being arrested on Nov. 2 and released two days later.
Roman’s attorney, Durante Partridge, told Bossip.com that there were misrepresentations in the police report, stressed that he hadn’t yet been formally charged and maintained that Norman was innocent of terrorizing his family.
We’ll be following this case to see what happens to Kyle and his family.
