Family law issue: R&B star faces domestic violence charges

People are usually taught not to hit others, but sometimes a person can get pushed too far. An individual may lash out at another person, who is typically a loved one. This was the case for a popular R&B artist, who was recently arrested in Georgia on domestic violence charges.

Grammy-nominated singer Angie Stone was arrested on March 9 in Lithonia, just outside Atlanta. She was arguing with her daughter when the verbal discussion turned into a physical altercation. Stone's grandchildren were the focus of the argument. Police were called and both were arrested. Stone's daughter was released. She faces no charges, but Stone faces charges of aggravated battery. Stone has had several hit songs and recently appeared on the TV show "R&B Divas: Atlanta."

Unfortunately, domestic violence is a common family law issue. It may be difficult to understand why people would hurt the ones they love. Physical abuse is never a good way to solve problems, as it can cause emotional damage, as well. Plus, it is illegal, but many victims never turn in their abusers because they don't want to break up the family unit.

It's important to understand that domestic violence does not solely occur between couples nor is a man always involved. An act of domestic violence may involve a man and a woman, two men or two women. It could be between a parent and child or those involved may not even be related at all. Any type of abuse should be reported to authorities. It may be wise to seek legal help, as well, so victims can protect themselves.
