Last week, Mario was arrested for attacking his mother in a Baltimore apartment that they share.
Get the details here: Mario Arrested For Allegedly Attacking Mother
We suspected that the fight was over her heroin addiction – something Mario tried to put an end to back in 2007 when he appeared on the MTV documentary special “I Won’t Love You To Death” in which he had cameras follow his attempt at an intervention.
Mario’s lawyer, Hassan Murphy, has confirmed our suspicions. He released a statement on Saturday, saying that the arrest was:
“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.”
