Gabrielle Stokes, the 19-year-old daughter of R&B singer Sara Stokes, was arrested early Tuesday morning in Warren on charges of disturbing the peace and the purchase/consumption of alcohol by a minor.
Gabrielle Stokes pleaded not guilty during arraignment Tuesday, said her lawyer, Adam Clements, and posted a $1,000 cash bond.
Her parents, Tony and Sara Stokes, who stars on the BET Centric reality TV show “From the Bottom Up,” allege Warren police mistreated Gabrielle Stokes when she was arrested at her apartment near 12 Mile and Hayes, where she was having a going-away party for a friend who was moving to Texas.
Tony Stokes said police forcibly grabbed Gabrielle Stokes, a student at Macomb Community College, from the apartment, handcuffed her and dragged her down the stairs.
“It was … white cops, and they seen a bunch of black kids and mixed kids,” Tony Stokes said. “This excessive use of force (expletive) has to stop because black lives do matter. … We will be filing a lawsuit against the City of Warren and those officers.
