BREAKING: Mario Arrested For Attacking His Mother?!

 

 

R&B singer Mario was arrested in Baltimore this morning for allegedly assaulting his own mother.  Get the deets on what happened inside...

This morning, police arrived to the apartment Mario shares with his mother, Shawntia Hardaway, to find a broken china cabinet, a busted mirror and a hole in the closet door.  Apparently, Mario had a little temper tantrum and Shawntia told police he had pushed her around with his hands and forearms.  Shawntia, a former heroin addict, also said that 24-year-old Mario attacked her earlier in the week when he pushed her into a living room wall, making her hit her head. 

Mario was arrested for 2nd degree assault and released on $50,000 bond. SMH.  I don't know what to say about this.  I am sure there is more to the story and hopefully it comes out soon.  Sigh.
 

UPDATE: Here's the Statement of Probable Cause outlining to the courts what went down:

{Click image}

The singer, real name Mario Dewar Barrett, is accused by his mom Shawntia Hardaway of twice attacking her at her home in Baltimore, Maryland.
She told police that the first time her 24-year-old son "pushed her eight feet into a living room wall, where Ms. Hardaway hit her head on the wall", according to police documents. She was then found crying after police arrived to a "mental case breaking up property" at her apartment, and she told officers he had again pushed her.

"When this officer asked the victim if she fears for her life in reference to her son's actions, the victim replied 'yes'," the officer wrote.

I dont believe he would do

I dont believe he would do anything to hurt her. He spent years trying to help her with her addiction. I do believe that she probably got tired of him trying to protect her and called the police

Honestly, WTF Is wrong with

Honestly, WTF Is wrong with people? Why is it that every time there is a celebrity involved in a situation as such, there are always people who have the following comments; "Well I'm sure she must have done SOMETHING to make him do this.." or "I feel so bad for him!" Wake Up People!! Number One, You don't know these people, and half the songs they sing aren't even relevant to their own lives, so Who Are You to say what the situation would have been? Number Two, I don't care who you are, but you should never, EVER put your hands on your mother. Anyone with good common sense and a sense of respect knows this. I don't care what she "may have" or "may not have" done. STOP MAKING EXCUSES FOR CELEBRITIES!!! I'm just sayin', I like Mario too, but Damn! Right is Right!!! Alright, I'm Done Ranting! LOLOL

seen it and agree, but that doesn't give him the right to hit her (if it's true). Lots of people have lives just as hard if not harder than his but they don't all resort to violence. Sad they're both in my prayers.

Yes!!! I watched an MTV

Yes!!! I watched an MTV documentary on his mom's addiction(a few years ago) and it was one of the saddest stories that I've ever seen! It was clled "I will not love you til death"...She has been addicted to heroin for over 20 years, he has paid for treatment a dozen times(she leaves) and he refuses to let her go. The show followed them for about a month..she was recently released from treatment and within the short taping of the documentary she was back using , while living in his home. He got her a job working for the label and brought her to live with him, so she would be close by at all times(she travels with him and he practically takes care of her like a kid). The saddest part was just before his album release, things were great, she had a job(working for the label), she was clean and he was soooooo happy and giddy like a kid...then hours before he is set to do a show He gets a call that she is at some crack spot in Baltimore...so he leaves practice to go to some crack house to get her..she's a mess(white around her nose) and in a heroin daze and becomes sooo combative. I hate to see that young man dealing with such nonsense. She has done this his whole life and most of her family has decided to cut her off...she even admitted that she has been doing Heroin her whole life and she will probably continue for the rest of her life. The show ended with her in his house in a heroin daze and him standing in the window sobbing! smh

It's been a few years..it was

It's been a few years..it was around the time his album was being released. It was on MTV and the title was "I will not love you til death". It was really sad and hard to watch at times becaues the emotions were soo real! You could tell that he had been dealing with this his whole life and desperately wants some normalcy and support from her. I doubt if he hit her...He was SUPER protective of her on the show. Even when she was obviously high, he was still very patient and protective.

i really feel for him and im

i really feel for him and im sure something happened to were he was just fed up completely... Honestly, the addiction gets to be old and like you said he's taking care of her like a kid...That is tiresome on one person and he's young missing out on his fun in life.... He's missing out on life...He's in my prayers....

No one can understand what

No one can understand what you feel and how you react until you have lived with a parent this is an addict. The anger and violence comes from a place of hurt and desperation from trying to help someone that you love when they have blatently showed you that they dont care for you or about you all they want is whatever drug that makes them happy. It is wrong to hit your parents but no one knows what led up to that situation.

That's SO true!..My sister is an Addict and she has Three sons who all live with her...They are Now Big Teenagers and I can tell that this is Tearing them up. They try to hide it and won't discuss Anything surrounding her addiction with me, but it has Affected these boys with school, getting into trouble, etc..I feel Terrible for them but I live far away from them and besides I can NOT get them to Open up to me...Naturally they will cover for her and Pretend, as she does, that Everything is Peachy...I Certainly can NOT speak in any sort of negative tone about her to them even tho I am trying to convey Concern and Not judgement. I tell you it is Very Difficult, Touchy and Upsetting situation!!!..I can Completly empathize with Mario.

My brother is an addict and

My brother is an addict and has been for over 10 years. It makes me sad and pissed at the same time when I see him because I still can't understand why he feels he needs drugs. I hate going home to visit my parents because I don't want him to pop up at the house. I don't like to see him strung out. I have not seen him in about 5 years and I have no desire to see him. I've seen him on the streets since I was a little girl. Now that I'm a grown woman I still cant deal with the situation because its really hard. I just ask God to protect him. My eyes are getting watery as I type this. I definitely understand what Mario has been through with him mom. Just pray for his family.

why do i get the feeling she

why do i get the feeling she was back to her druggie ways and he pushed her in a scuffle for the pipe or something. he been through a lot with this woman and the only thing i can see him wilding out about is drugs and the disrespect that comes along with it, drug addicts do some crazy shit maybe he broke all the shit up so she couldnt sell it for drugs maybe she was doing lots of shit but this sounds like years of repressed frustration that hit the breaking point, i hear people saying he should have put her in treatment but what you dont get is only an addict can help themselves nobody else can help an addict , you will die of anger and frustration trying to convince yourself you can save an addict you just cant they have to do it on their own , you cant make them stay in treatment and even if they go there is no promise they wont go right back to their old ways , she was in treatment on their reality show. I am sure she knows she needs help and is ashamed and hurting. I JUST HOPE THEY GET IT TOGETHER ON BOTH ENDS BECAUSE DRUGS OR NO DRUGS WRONG OR RIGHT YOU ONLY GET ONE MOTHER

For the ones who are on here

For the ones who are on here saying that he’s wrong, he has anger issues, etc…. I can tell you have never had to deal with a relative whose has a addiction to drugs. These people have only one person on their minds and that’s self and self only. I’m 26 years old and have 2 kids of my own and I’ve never seen a day where my aunt wasn’t addicted to crack!!! I’ve watched her selfishly think about herself my entire life. When we were younger she sold my cousins for money and drugs, left them alone in the house for days, had them up all hours of the night sitting in crack houses, spending my uncle’s paycheck on crack while he’s offshore working thinking she’s taking care of the home while he’s out working. It got so bad the family had to bring them back to the city we were all in so the family could help take care of the kids. Which I think made things worse because now she had no reason to come home because some else had kids. They were bounce from one home to the other. The oldest has no childhood because her mother took that away, she was instead a mother to her siblings. Now 20years later she still pulling the same old trick and stunts!!! My cousin treats her mom like a random person on the street, not saying it right but I understand where she’s coming from, she was never there for her and still not. After a while of watching a person make the same mistake over and over again it gets old and you get very tired of hearing the same old story over and over again. And if you don’t talk about it all that the anger and hatred for that person grows and grows until one day you explode. I’m not trying to tell my family story but I understand where Mario was coming from.

I know this. Looking at that MUG shot it's a good thing Mario did not head butt her cause his mammy would be DEAD now. That Head is lethal!
Crazy's picture

I hope everyone knows that

I hope everyone knows that Mario's mom is an accidental addict. She was a up and coming tennis star that got into a horrible car accident. The DOCTORS prescribed pain medication but for some reason or another did not wean her off meds that had heroin like effects. So she had to turn to street drugs to deal with the pain from the accident. I'm really surprised a movie has not been made about it cause it is really a deep story. I'm no Mario fan. I believe he is a decent man. Aside from him running the street with that tampon Dez, I have nothing negative to say. I'm sure this is being blown out of context. As a woman who grew up with an alcoholic parent, I can only imagine the pain he is going through with his mom.

I'm a Baltimorian and know mario For years since we was kids No one understand or really know what happened some of these comments are true .1 she is very addicted to drugs, 2 she steels his money for it,3 he takes very good care of her and watch her as much as he can, 4 he has placed her in many many drug treatment programs, 5 he sobs and have a very great deal of depression from his mother being an addict, this was a very unfortunate accident however it was very exaggerated to the best of her antics he will never never never hurt his mother,, just imagine comeing in the house with your mother zoned out drugs every where and thousands of your dollars gone blone on drugs.. complaint from your wealthy neighbors... plz dont bad mouth him for this it's hurtful and belive me he see and care what fans thinks all celebs do
