Former Color Me Badd singer and reality television star Bryan Abrams reportedly was jailed after a public drunkenness and domestic abuse arrest Sept. 5 in south Oklahoma City.

Police accuse Abrams of punching a woman in the nose in front of two children after an argument near S.W. 89th and Pennsylvania about 4 p.m. that day.

The woman told officers Abrams threatened her, saying "I'm a kill you. You and me. You and me. Nigga to Nigga."

Officers spoke to Abrams, a 38-year-old white man, who was said to smell of alcohol and was using slurred speech and "random sentence fragments," according to the report.

A waiter setting tables at a nearby restaurant told officers he saw Abrams punch the woman in the face. The woman agreed to press assault and battery charges against Abrams, who was arrested and taken to the Oklahoma County Jail.

Abrams received a deferred sentence in February 2007 for a domestic abuse charge in Cleveland County. He was arrested on drunken driving charges in 2005 and 2006.

Color Me Badd was a Nineties R&B group founded by Abrams and three other Northwest Classen High School graduates. Bolstered by the chart success of "I Wanna Sex You Up," "All 4 Love" and "I Adore Mi Amor," more than 3 million copies of the group's 1991 release "C.M.B." were purchased.

In August 2007, Abrams appeared alongside other kind-of-well-known pop performers in VH1's "Mission: Man Band," which documented the group as they recorded and performed together as SureShot, a boy band supergroup.

Bucky, the Chicken-Fried News intern and Nineties has-been investigative reporter, wonders if the authorities were alerted to the altercation by trusted Canadian reggae-rapper and "Informer" Snow.
