R&B singer and former Dancing With the Stars contestant Mario was arrested around 1 a.m. this morning for allegedly assaulting his mother in the apartment they share in Baltimore. According to a Baltimore police spokesperson, the performer’s mother told cops her son had physically shoved her and indicated that he had also assaulted her last week in a similar incident.

Mario — whose full name is Mario Dewar Barrett — was charged with destruction of property and second degree assault. He was later released on a $50,000 bond.
