R&B singer Angie Stone has been arrested and charged with aggravated assault after an altercation with her daughter Diamond in Lithonia, Ga., the Associated Press reported on Tuesday, March 10.

DeKalb County police told the AP that Stone, 53, is accused of using a metal stand to knock out several of her daughter's teeth. She told officers that she did so in self-defense, after Diamond allegedly punched her in the face. 

According to the AP, the argument began when Stone told Diamond to "clean up and get her children under control." It ended when a family friend intervened.
