Jagged Edge member Kyle Norman was arrested after allegedly trying to stab his during a drunken a fight at his Georgia home in September, reports Bossip. According to documents recently obtained by the site, Norman had to be restrained to stop him from beating his son, who’s age is unclear.
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.
Norman faces up to 12 months for the cruelty charge lodged against him for “allowing a minor to witness violence,” states Bossip. He is currently serving a 15-year probation sentence after he was arrested in 2015 for shoving an engagement ring down his now wife’s throat.
