Mario, the Baltimore born R&B song famous for his songs “Just A Friend” and “Braid My Hair” was arrested for assaulting his mom in the Baltimore apartment they share, according to The Baltimore Sun.

There are few details at the moment, but court records show Mario — whose full name is Mario Dewar Bennett — is charged with one count of second-degree assault. Sources said they were called to the 900 block of Fell St. after the singer’s mother, Shawntia Hardaway called police.

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.
