Appaz the boy was making ‘lewd’ comments about his fiancée Lucy
The boy is said to have made ‘lewd’ comments about Mario’s fiancée Lucy Mecklenburgh when hanging around near the couple’s home with his friends.
Mario was arrested and confessed to the crime earlier this month.
A source told the Daily Mirror: “Mario and Lucy were leaving their house when some comments were made about Lucy by a group of youths nearby who were making references to her ex Mark Wright.
“In the heat of the moment, Mario stormed over and grabbed one of them by the collar. It was a really stupid thing to do.
“The boy, who was 11 but looked older, went home and told his mum what had happened and she called the police.
"Mario was arrested the following day.”
A spokesman for Mario said: “Although both he and Lucy were the subject of some very hostile and confrontational provocation from a group of males Mario deeply regrets reacting in the way he did.
“He has already apologised to the boy and his family and offered to meet with them.”
Wow, surely he could have just controlled his temper in the first place?
