A couple of days ago we posted a story about R&B singer Mario. He allegedly got into a physical altercation with his mother and was taken to jail. Welllll….NO U AINT Radio has some folks over at kikster.com who managed to track down a friend of Mario’s who spilled the beans on what ALLEGEDLY happened between Mario and his mom – that got him arrested.
This is what the friend said:
“While Mario was of town recording in New York, his mother had relapsed back into drugs and she was using his personal debit card to purchase illegal narcotics, aka heroin. When Mario returned home (on the 25th of September) and confronted his mother about her actions she became enraged and an argument escalated, his Mom called 911 claiming that Mario got physical with her.”
Mario was arrested at the scene and is currently out on bail. Although, his mother didn’t press charges he was still arrested, according to Maryland law– anytime a domestic call comes in, the male is automatically arrested and detained.
Mario’s rep told kikster.com, “since Mario’s release on bail, Mario has returned home and is working at getting his mother back into a treatment center for her recent relapse for drugs.”
“This is an unfortunate incident between a loving son and a mother who continues to struggle with a devastating addiction. Anyone who has waged the battle to save loved ones from the forces of drugs knows the irrational behavior that almost always accompanies their actions. Despite the allegations, Mario remains committed to supporting his mother.”
Dang! Mario is a good dude after all! You see how the media will go and flip a story (NO U AINT!). We hope his mother gets the help she needs!
