Doug Stone Arrested on Domestic Battery Charges
Doug Stone is behind bars in a Bay County, Fla. jail, after being arrested on domestic battery charges. Police responded to a domestic disturbance call early Thursday morning at a Panama City condominium, where they found the 52-year-old country singer on the floor, with his 22-year-old son in a headlock.
This happened just one hour after Stone wrecked his car. Police were called to the scene of that incident, as well, but they let Stone go, even though they say he appeared intoxicated. Stone was standing outside the car when police arrived, so they couldn't prove that he was behind the wheel at the time of the accident. They insisted he have the car towed and sent him on his way.
Stone had 15 Top Ten hits in the '90s, including the chart-toppers 'In a Different Light,' 'Why Didn't I Think of That,' 'A Jukebox With a Country Song' and 'Too Busy Being in Love.' He also acted in the Disney movie, 'Gordy.'
This is not Stone's first run-in with the law. He spent six months in jail back in 2005 for failing to pay alimony and child support, and failing to release his financial records.
