Mario Arrested In Baltimore For Assaulting His Mother

You ever wake up, check your phone to see what’s going on in the world and see a headline so disgraceful that you hope, wish and pray that you’re still asleep and in the midst of a nightmare? That’s precisely how I felt when I was greeted by TMZ with news that singer Mario was arrested for allegedly assaulting his mother, Shawntia Harris. The Baltimore Sun reports that the former Dancing With the Stars contestant was “charged with one count of second-degree assault” after Harris called police to the Baltimore apartment that she shares with her son and accused him of pushing her and destroying property. In her statement to police, Harris also went on to state that last night’s altercation with Mario was the second time this week that he had laid hands on her, and she informed them that she feared for her life. After his arrest, Mario posted $50,000 bond and was released. There’s no indication if drugs were at play–Mario’s mother is a former heroin addict–or what caused this altercation, but this story is disturbing on so many levels.
