R&B singer Mario was arrested in Baltimore early Friday for reportedly assaulting his mother. Shawntia Hardaway told police that her son struck her and destroyed their shared apartment, reports The Baltimore Sun…
According to police reports, Hardaway told officers that the 24-year-old began “throwing and damaging property,” “pushed her in the chest and shoulder area,” and then again “pushed her very hard [approximately] eight feet into a living room wall.”
The ‘Let Me Love You’ singer, full name Mario Dewar Barrett, was charged with one count of second-degree assault and released on $50,000 bail.
In 2008 Barrett and his mother appeared on an MTV show, which followed the young star on an emotional journey, as he tried to help the 45-year-old combat her long running drug addiction.
