Via TMZ:
According to police, Mario's mother Shawntia Hardaway -- a former heroin addict -- told cops the former "Dancing with the Stars" contestant had been "throwing and damaging property" ... and pushed her around with his hands and forearms.

Cops say they found several broken items inside the apartment -- including a broken china cabinet, a busted mirror and a hole in the closet door.

Mario's mother also told police the 24-year-old singer had attacked her earlier in the week -- in which he pushed her "eight feet into a living room wall, where Ms. Hardaway hit her head on the wall."

Mario -- real name Mario Dewar Bennett -- was eventually arrested this morning for 2nd degree assault. He was released on $50,000 bond

  1. He and his mom have been on an up and down roller coaster with her drug abuse. I've heard some people say that he found out she was using again and when he confronted her about it, she was the one who became agressive towards him and he had to defend himself. But the truth will come out. And while it will be hard for him, he'll have to cut her off completely.

    She has to want better for herself and to leave the drug life behind. No matter how much money he gives her or things he buys her it'll never be enough to stop her from going back to her old life. It's a sad story all around.
