Angie Stone Arrested For Domestic Assault
Stone, 53, was arrested in DeKalb County, Ga., Monday night, and has since been released. Stone told police that she and her daughter, Diamond, 30, got into a fight after she reprimanded Diamond for not being in control of her children. Stone alleges that Diamond struck first, punching her in the face with a closed fist, and that she was simply using a metal stand to defend herself. Stone also claimed that once she realized she had hurt her daughter with the metal stand, she tried to extricate herself from the situation.
“Once she realized this, she quickly put the stand down and attempted to get away from Ms. Diamond Stone. Ms. Angie Stone then stated while she tried to get away, Ms. Diamond Stone continued to come after her as if to strike her again but stated that Ms. Blondy Chisolm came to break up the fight,” the police wrote in their report.
Blondy Chisolm, a family friend, was present during the altercation and reportedly told police that she was unsure who started the physical fight. Meanwhile, Diamond’s statement differs from her mother’s. Diamond reportedly claimed that she did not go after her mother after being hit with the metal stand, but walked away from the fight and went to call the police. However, conflicting reports suggest that Diamond claimed that her mother grabbed the metal stand to threaten her with and hit her with it when she made a move to call the cops.
Diamond later took to Facebook to share images of her injuries – namely her knocked out teeth – and release a statement. While Diamond steered clear from revealing any other details of the altercation, she hinted at a history of abuse.
“I’m sick of putting up these fronts and because you took s—t to another level I will too. I love all my family but I cannot take anymore abuse so I’m separating myself from it all. I pray God heals us from this but from where I sit there is no turning back cause if you ain’t wit me you against me. You so worried about to media and the press but I promise you this I will not rest until my story is heard,” Diamond reportedly wrote.
Both mother and daughter were brought down to the DeKalb County Police Department headquarters, but only Stone was charged with domestic aggravated assault. Diamond was released without charges.
