Singer and former Dancing with the SARS contestant Mario was gently put into a jail cell in Baltimore, MD early this morning for allegedly physically freaking out on the woman who nearly broke her vag (as my drunk auntie always puts it) giving birth to him 24 years ago.
The story goes that Balitmore police were called to the apartment Mario shares with his mother Shawntia Hardaway after he allegedly flipped on the rage by breaking a china cabinet, shattering a mirror and punching a hole into a door. Shawntia also told police that Mario pushed her around the apartment. Mario was charged with second-degree assault and later released on $50,000 bail.
As Rap-Up points out, Mario’s relationship with his mother hasn’t been blue cotton candy and kitten burps. In a 2007 MTV documentary, Mario tried to help his mother kick her addiction to heroin by staging an intervention.
On a positive-ish note, Mario is looking (read this in a Gay Al twang) flawless in his mug shot. Did the police let him moisturize, manicure and primp before they said “cheese“? If he wasn’t an alleged mama je’e’ beater, I’d want to whisper sweet nothings into his nostrils.
