    R&B singer and former Dancing With the Stars contestant Mario got into some legal hot water late last week. He was arrested around in the early hours of the morning last Friday for allegedly assaulting his mother in the apartment they share in Baltimore.

    The cops said that Mario's mother told cops her son had physically shoved her and indicated that he had also assaulted her last week in a similar incident. Yikes!

    The singer was charged with destruction of property and second-degree assault. He was later released on a $50,000 bond.

    VIBE reported the following statement from Mario's lawyer: "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."

    What do you think of Mario's actions against his mom? Did you watch him on DWTS?
