Meet Angela Lavern Brown aka 3-time Grammy nominee Angie Stone of R&B Divas Atlanta.
Stone, 53, posed for the mugshot above after she was arrested in Dekalb County, Georgia last night (March 9, 2015).
According to a DeKalb County police incident report, Angie told police her 30 year old daughter Diamond punched her in the face, forcing her to defend herself.
While it could be considered self-defense, it appears that instead of using comparable force, Angie chose to defended herself with a metal stand, knocking out her daughter’s front teeth in the process.
According to the AJC:
Angie Stone told police her daughter Diamond Stone hit her in the face with closed fists first. Diamond Stone and Blondy Chisolm, a family friend who witnessed the Monday night altercation, told police they were not sure who threw the first blow.
The spat, according to Diamond Stone, started when Angie Stone entered her daughter’s room, demanded that she clean it up and ordered her to control her children, who were running around the singer’s Rogers Lake Road home half naked.

Singer Angie Stone is known for songs including “No More Rain.” She has been nominated for Grammys in 2003, 2004 and 2008.
“Ms. Diamond Stone then went on to state that Ms. Angie Stone started (getting) in her face, telling her she needed to leave because she is tired (of) her,” police said in the report. “Ms. Diamond Stone then stated her and Ms. Angie Stone started to argue, and that’s when a physical altercation started to occur.”
Angie Stone, 53, told police she did not know she hit her daughter with a metal stand.
“Once she realized this,” police said in the report, “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.”
Diamond Stone’s version of the story is different. According to the report, she walked away after Angie Stone struck her in the face with the metal stand and called police.
Both women were taken to DeKalb County Police Department headquarters for questioning, however Diamond Stone was released with no charges.
Stone, who most recently appeared with other singers on TV One’s popular reality show, “R&B Divas: Atlanta,” is being held in the DeKalb County jail on a charge of domestic aggravated assault.
Stone, whose real name is Angela Brown, was nominated for Grammys in 2003, 2004 and 2008.
