R&B singer Angie Stone was arrested for domestic aggravated assault after allegedly attacking her daughter in Atlanta on Monday night.

The Atlanta Journal Constitution (AJC) reports that the Grammy-nominated singer struck her 30-year-old daughter, Diamond, with a metal stand and knocked out her two front teeth.

According to a DeKalb County police incident report, the singer claims her daughter punched her first and she was only protecting herself.

Diamond told police that the altercation started when Angie came into her room, demanded that she clean up and control her children, who were running around the house naked.

“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, 53, told the police that hitting Diamond in the face was not intentional.

“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.”

Both women were taken to the DeKalb County Police Department, but Diamond was later released with no charges.

Angie, however, was charged with a felony count of aggravated domestic assault.

The singer is known for her R&B hits “Wish I Didn’t Miss You,” “Brotha,” and “I Wanna Thank You.” Most recently she appeared on reality series R&B Divas Atlanta.
