The first of the month isn’t a good one for Mario. TMZ reports that the 24-year-old singer was arrested this morning (Oct. 1) in Baltimore for allegedly assaulting his mother, Shawntia Hardaway.

The mom, who’s a recovering heroin addict, filed a report claiming that Mario pushed her and was “throwing and damaging property” in the apartment.

Cops say they found a broken mirror and a hole in the closet door once they arrived at the home.

Hardaway also alleged that a similar incident happened earlier this week in which she hit her head.

Mario has been released on $50,000 bond.

UPDATE: In 2007, Mario did an MTV documentary called I Won’t Love You To Death: The Story of Mario And His Mom. Peep some footage below.
