Color Me Badd singer facing more troubles

Former Color Me Badd singer Bryan Abrams was arrested Friday on charges of public drunkenness and domestic abuse.

Abrams, 38, is accused of punching a woman in the nose and threatening her, saying "I'm a kill you. You and me. You and me,” according to a police report.

The singer could not be reached Monday because he was in jail. His wife, who asked not to be identified, answered the telephone Monday but would not comment on the incident.

The woman Abrams is accused of hitting was not identified by police.

Police were called about 4 p.m. to SW 89 and Pennsylvania regarding a drunken man causing a disturbance, according to a police report.

Officers spoke with Abrams, who was said to have had slurred speech and "random sentence fragments.” There was a strong odor of alcohol on his breath, according to the report.

A waiter at the restaurant where the incident happened said he was setting tables and saw Abrams punch the woman in the face, the report states.

The victim agreed to press assault and battery charges against Abrams , according to the police report.

He was booked into the Oklahoma County jail.

Abrams was arrested on charges of drunken driving in 2005 and 2006.

Abrams accepted a deferred sentence in February 2007 for a domestic abuse charge in Cleveland County.
