Deloma Stone is a 15-year veteran with the Detroit Police Department. On Monday night the 38-year-old officer was arrested for carrying a firearm while under the influence of alcohol at a bar in the city, local media reports.
Batoul Lossia of Detroit’s Golden Greek bar said this isn’t the first time Stone has patronized the establishment.
“Three times and all three times, it was a headache,” Lossia told MyFoxDetroit.
During this most recent visit, Stone claimed she won $20,000 playing Keno. When the bartender told her that she didn’t, confirming that her ticket was not a winner, she became unruly.
“She said we stole her ticket we didn’t steal her ticket because she was drunk,” Lossia said.
Stone then followed one of the bartenders into a bathroom and punched the bartender in the neck.
“Be careful don’t punch me I’ll call the cops on you,” Lossia said her bartender exclaimed.
Forced with no other option, Lossia called the police. Once they arrived, they confronted their peer. Not only was she intoxicated — her BAC was .14, according to a breathalyzer test — but she was carrying a department-issued handgun in her purse.
Sadly, it appears that Stone is no stranger to controversy. As MyFoxDetroit noted:
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 pocket book.
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.
Stone was officially charged with possession of a firearm while being under the influence Thursday. It’s a misdemeanor that carries a maximum sentence of 93-days in jail. She was released on a $100 bond and is due back in court on April 14 at 9 a.m
As far as her job is concerned, she’s been suspended with pay for the time being.
