R&B singer Angie Stone accused of knocking out daughter's teeth, arrested on assault charge

LITHONA, Ga. - Police say Grammy-nominated R&B singer Angie Stone is accused of knocking out several of her daughter's teeth with a metal stand and has been charged with aggravated assault.

DeKalb County police say the 53-year-old singer was in an argument Monday with her 30-year-old daughter in Lithonia, Georgia.

Police say the singer told officers her daughter, Diamond, punched her in the face and that she used a metal stand to defend herself. Police say the blow knocked out several of Diamond Stone's front teeth. A family friend broke up the fight.

Diamond Stone told police an argument began after the singer told her to clean up and get her children under control.

A phone call and emails to Angie Stone's agents weren't immediately returned. It's unclear if she has an attorney.
