— A singer with the 1990s rhythm and blues group Color Me Badd is wanted on an arrest warrant in Cleveland County, where he pleaded guilty last year to domestic violence charges following an October 2011 incident involving his wife.

Bryan Abrams, 43, an Oklahoma City native, has a history of domestic violence and his third divorce is pending in Cleveland County District Court, records show.

Abrams pleaded guilty to one count of domestic abuse in April 2012. He was placed on probation for a year and ordered to get counseling for domestic violence and substance abuse issues.

Records show Abrams has not complied with the terms of his probation by failing to pay fees and report to his probation officer. A warrant was issued for his arrest in February and remains open.

A probable cause affidavit filed in January 2012 shows Abrams punched his wife in the face during an argument. The woman, identified as Kimberly Frazier in court records, said she was “also hit in several places that caused injuries to her neck and thigh.”

The affidavit states the Oklahoma City Police Department had evidence and records to back up the allegations.

“OCPD has pictures of Kimberly's injuries upon arrival of the police,” the affidavit states. “OCPD also has the 911 call of Kimberly's frantic voice saying she was assaulted by her husband.”

The affidavit claims Abrams was involved in “12 prior domestic cases dating back to 2005.”
