Detroit cop arrested for assault & obstruction in Hamtramck

A Detroit Police Officer is facing more problems with the law after she was arrested early Wednesday morning on accusations of assault.

Deloma Stone was arrested Wednesday morning and faces assault charges after a problem at a Hamtramck bar. Wednesday morning, she was back before a judge where she was arraigned on charges of resisting arrest and obstructing an officer.

According to sources, the 16-year veteran was at Jean's Lounge on Joseph Campau Tuesday night. The bartender said it was all fun and friendly until 10:00 p.m. That's when she apparently left to go next door to a chess club.

What happened in there? Police aren't saying, however the owner of the club spoke with FOX 2's Amy Lange. He said that they invited Stone into the club for a cup of coffee because they thought she needed to sober up. He said when they started speaking Albanian, she got agitated and asked them 'don't you know who I am?' He said she then slapped him, prompting his call to police.

Police are not releasing further details at this time but do say Stone has been suspended without pay pending the outcome of the investigation.

She'll be back in court on June 29th.

This is not Stone's first issue arrest. She's been on the force for 16 years and has had several run-ins with the law in recent years.

In February, she was accused of being drunk while carrying her gun while she was off duty. During that arrest, staff at the Golden Greek bar said Stone believed she had won a $20,000 jackpot in Keno. The bartender tried to convince her that she did not and she then claimed the bar stole her ticket. 

During that incident, she punched one of the bartenders and when police showed up, she had her gun in her purse. She was charged with possession of a firearm under the influence. 

Last summer she was arrested when she got drunk, threw a brick through someone's window. When police showed up, they found her pistol was in her purse as well.

And Stone can't seem to escape the controversy. A couple of years ago - someone broke into her Eastpointe home and she was forced to shoot in self-defense. 

She was also caught up in the domestic drama that lead to the demotion of Cmdr. James Moore in 2012 where she was named as his mistress. In 2012, Stone's 10-year-old son called 911 and claimed Moore hit Stone in front of a liquor store. She called police a few days later and claimed it happened again at a home on Strathmoore. The domestic violence charges were eventually dropped.
