Stoney LaRue Arrested on Domestic Violence Complaint
Red Dirt singer Stoney LaRue was arrested late Monday night (July 20) on a domestic abuse complaint.
LaRue, who was in Oklahoma City for a concert he performed on Saturday, was booked into Oklahoma County Jail and was soon released after he posted bond.
Oklahoma City Police allege that LaRue came home at 4 a.m. after being out drinking. His girlfriend, Amanda Winsworth, decided to sleep in her car to avoid the noise. She was getting ready for work a few hours later and her hairdryer woke Stoney up, which started an argument.
According to the arrest affidavit, LaRue, 38, threw Winsworth's makeup, curling iron and other items down the stairs. When she turned around to pick up some of her things, LaRue allegedly pushed her down the stairs.
Winsworth posted two updates on Twitter regarding the situation. She asks for privacy for the two, but also says Stoney never hit her.
News9 reports the two have been dating for three years and have lived together for about two years. The police report said Winsworth had scrapes and scratches on her leg and back.
It was later uncovered that Winsworth filed a protective order against LaRue, claiming he did hit her, and she had "bruises all over her legs and shoulders."
Stoney posted a statement Tuesday afternoon just after 4 p.m. on his Facebook page. Here's what he said:
