Mario & his mum

The mother of R&B singer Mario yesterday (Nov. 3) dropped the assault charges she filed against her son in October, admitting she was drunk at the time.

Shawntia Hardaway accused her son Mario on October 1 of assaulting her and trashing their Fells Point apartment. He was charged with assault and released on $50,000 bail. She appeared before a District Court in Maryland this afternoon and asked for the charges to be dropped. She has battled heroin addiction in the past.

Reacting to the dropped charges, Mario’s lawyer told Murphy TMZ that it was clear from the beginning that Mario had never assaulted Hardaway and that the singer “remains committed to helping his mother battle her addiction.”
