WJHG-TV 7/PANAMA CITY, FL is reporting that Country artist DOUG STONE, whose real name is DOUGLAS JACKSON BROOKS, was arrested overnight (04/09) at his beach condo. The NEWTON, GA native is accused of domestic battery against his 22-year-old son, DUSTIN BROOKS.
At about 3:30a (ET) THURSDAY morning, PANAMA CITY BEACH Police responded to a domestic disturbance call at Grand Panama Condo Resort on Front Beach Road. When officers arrived, resort security reported they saw Stone on the floor with his son in a headlock. When officers arrived, they observed BROOKS’ face was bloody.
Officers say the father attacked his son after the younger BROOKS began badgering his father about wrecking the car a short time earlier, and being intoxicated. Police say about an hour before they received the disturbance call at Grand Panama, STONE allegedly ran over a curb and blew out a tire in his vehicle. When officers arrived, STONE was standing outside of his car.
He is currently being held in the Bay County Jail on Bond. Read the entire story here.
