Can Angels "fall"?

According to this answer, the Pirkei D'Rabbi Eliezer (among other works) references an idea that angels "fell" -- were somehow separated from their holiness and "became" human.

This answer states that there is no idea in Judaism of a fallen" angel, and this answer discusses that there is an idea that angels lack free will (so they could not choose to abandon anything) but that there is an isolated incident where there is some loss of status because of personal choice.

How does normative Jewish thought deal with the texts which point to angels falling from their holiness and losing their position as angels because of their choices?
