Add Singer Mario To Prayer List: Arrested For Assaulting His Mama
Singer Mario Barrett does not have a good relationship with his mother because much of his childhood she had a serious drug addiction to heroin. Mario has spoken openly about the ordeal, but I didn’t expect to wake up one day with headlines from TMZ, “Singer Mario Arrested For Attacking Mother.” Mario is yet another celebrity we will just have to add to the prayer list because he’s been in trouble a few times since Dancing With the Stars. I hope everything is alright with him because I truly enjoy his music. (P.S. – I wonder if he’s still dating that chick Dez, Amber Rose ex-BFF).
Read the details of the alleged assault against his mother when you rad the rest…
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 the former “Dancing with the Stars” contestant 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 (ummm that should read Barrett TMZ)– was eventually arrested this morning for 2nd degree assault. He was released on $50,000 bond.
