R&B Singer, Mario was arrested on assault charges against his own mother. Mario’s mother Shawntia Hardaway, a former addict,Â saidÂ that her son pushed her and was throwing stuff in the apartment they share!
AccordingÂ to TMZ,
Mario — the platinum-selling R&B singer — was arrested in Baltimore this morning for allegedly assaulting his own mother in an apartment they share.
According to police, Mario’s mother Shawntia Hardaway — a former heroin addict — told cops Mario had been “throwing and damaging property” … and pushed her around with his hands and forearms.
Cops say they found several broken items inside the apartment — including a broken china cabinet, a busted mirror and a hole in the closet door.
Mario’s mother also told police the 24-year-old singer had attacked her earlier in the week — in which he pushed her “eight feet into a living room wall, where Ms. Hardaway hit her head on the wall.”
Mario — real name Mario Dewar Bennett — was eventually arrested this morning for 2nd degree assault. He released on $50,000 bond.
