Singer Mario was arrested in Baltimore this morning for allegedly assaulting his mother in an apartment they share.

At 12:53 a.m., an officer was dispatched to the 900 block of Fells St for a call for a “mental case breaking up property” inside an apartment. Officers met Hardaway in the front lobby – she was crying and appeared very upset, officers wrote. She said Mario was “throwing and damaging property” in the apartment they share, and had pushed her using his hands and forearms, causing minor pain. When police went up to the apartment, they found a damaged china cabinet and the floor littered with broken glass. A mirror was broken, and there was a large hole in a closet door.

She said it was the second such time he had put his hands on her in recent days – on Sept. 27, she said, they got into an argument in which he pushed her “eight feet into a living room wall, where Ms. Hardaway hit her head on the wall,” police wrote in charging documents.

“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.

No word on what sparked either incident.


This is just sad.

  1. Isn’t Mario’s mum a former drug addict who occassionally slips off the wagon? I saw his documentary and from what I gather he is solely responsible for her. I am not excusing what he did but she might be using again and he just can’t deal with it. I do agree that it is a very sad situation.

  2. I agree with Ondo Lady , I too saw the documentary and I felt for him having to deal with with his mum and her addiction and his work as artist in the crazy business they call music.

    I hope they both sort things out
