Troubled Singer Accused Of Allowing A Kid To Watch Him Attack Relative
Jagged Edge singer Kyle Norman was thrown back in jail for violating the terms of his most recent probation after cops arrested him once again for family violence and battery.
The “Lets Get Married” crooner is now facing jail time for cruelty to children in the third degree for allowing a minor to witness violence – a charge that carries a maximum 12 month sentence.
Back in January 2015, the singer as arrested on charges of aggravated assault against his fiancée, who called police after he allegedly attacked her in Georgia. The fight began when the woman confronted Norman about his drinking and he told police later he was upset about his father’s recent cancer diagnosis.
His now wife had welts under her eyes, a golf ball-sized knot on her upper left forehead, cut on her nose and a burst blood clot in her eye.
His then-fiancé alleged Norman punched and choked her with a scarf before shoving her engagement ring down her throat and continued to choke her. When she tried to flee, Norman allegedly took her car keys and broke her cell phone. The victim also claimed he told her “she was gonna die today.”
She was able to escape by trying to calm Norman down for long enough that she was able to run to a neighbor’s home. Law enforcement arrived to the scene and saw the singer running in the street shouting, “I need to go to jail.”
Norman was arrested and charged with aggravated assault. He was facing serious time in prison in the case. Then in November, the singer reached a plea deal that keep him out of jail.
The deal had Norman serving 15 years of probation and community service for the aggravated assault charge and 10 years for false imprisonment charge.
Following the sentence the singer spoke publicly about the situation and said his fiancé Marrika Maria and him put the whole ordeal behind them, and tied the knot along with him claiming he was now sober.
Things didn’t turn out well for the singer because in February of this year he was arrested and charged once again with battery and family violence, but in April he made a deal where he pled guilty to disorderly conduct.
