Mario Arrested For Assault - Report

R&B singer MARIO is facing a charge of second degree assault after he was arrested in his native Baltimore, Maryland for allegedly assaulting his mother in an apartment they share.
The Let Me Love You hitmaker was taken into custody on Friday morning (01Oct10), after his mum, Shawntia Hardaway, told authorities he was "throwing and damaging property" and had reportedly pushed her with his hands and forearms.
A police source tells TMZ.com several broken items were found inside the apartment, including a smashed china cabinet, a busted mirror and a hole in the closet door.
Hardaway, a former heroin addict, also claimed she had been involved in another violent altercation with the 24-year-old singer days prior to his arrest.
In a police report detailing the earlier incident and obtained by the website, it is suggested Mario pushed his mum "eight feet into a living room wall, where Ms. Hardaway hit her head on the wall".
The singer, real name Mario Dewar Bennett, has since been released on $50,000 (£33,330) bond.
