Kyle L. Norman, one-fourth of the popular Grammy-nominated R&B group Jagged Edge, was arrested Thursday morning after police responded to what has been described as a “fight call.”
Kyle Norman was arrested by officers from the Atlanta Police Department after he was accused and later charged with aggravated assault against his fiancée. Norman, who is a member of Grammy-nominated R&B group Jagged Edge, had allegedly punched and choked her with a scarf. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Norman’s fiancée told police that he had “shoved her engagement ring down her throat, took her keys and broke her cell phone.”
The AJC also reports that Norman’s fiancée was taken to 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.” In an extensive, explanatory email to the AJC, one of the responding officers said:
“She [Norman’s fiancée] began to agree with things that he [Norman] 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 reportedly told police “I need to go to jail” after the incident and that “he was upset about his dad having cancer and that’s the reason he got so mad at his fiancée.” At this time, Norman is being held at the Fulton County Jail in Atlanta on the charge of aggravated assault and it is unclear when he will be released.
