LeBron James's Mother Arrested in Miami

LeBron James's mother, Gloria, was arrested early Thursday after an alleged altercation at the Fontainebleau Hotel on Miami Beach.

"There was an incident involving Mrs. Gloria James and an employee of our valet parking provider while she was exiting the hotel early Thursday morning," a spokesperson for Fontainebleau Miami Beach, said in a statement. (Lebron, meanwhile, had a game that night.)

According to a source on the scene, Gloria and some girlfriends came to party at club LIV at the Fontainebleau, where she was being "sweet as pie" during the the night out. When it came time to leave around 5 a.m., a security guard escorted her to the valet area to collect her car. The escort was not because she was behaving badly, the source says, but because it's a Fontainebleau policy to provide their VIP guests with an escort.

"When Gloria went to get in her car, she said she couldn't find her keys which she was told were in the car," the source tells PEOPLE. "She got angry quickly and swung her bag at the valet person who brought the car."

But her aim was off, and Gloria missed the valet with her bag, the source says, so she slapped his face a minute later. That's when, the source says, the police were called, and Gloria was taken into custody early Thursday morning.

The Miami Beach Police Department processed James and charged her with simple battery and disorderly intoxication. The Miami Herald first reported that she would likely face a misdemeanor assault charge.

The Herald also says Gloria James has been in trouble with the law before, having faced a DUI charge in Ohio in 2006.

Gloria raised LeBron, 26, an NBA star, as a single mother. He sports a "Queen James" tattoo in her honor and has described her as a strong-willed woman who kept him humble in the wake of his super stardom.

"She doesn't hold her tongue," he told GQ last year. "If she sees something that she believes isn't right or is right, she's going to speak about it."

I hope she's clubbing up here while the series is going on. I may just show up and see if she needs a ride to the game with me.

I can massage that massive forhead for her at the Garden.

LMAO at her aim being off like her sons shot selection in the playoffs.

Don't know the whole story so won't judge. She and Lebron have done a pretty damn good job staying out trouble considering his ascension at such a young age with all that money and power thrown at him (them).

A 40+ year old woman drunk at a club at 5am on a Wed night. You can judge based on that alone.

What did you believe was going to happen in a thread about her getting arrested? The story is about her and everything that comes along with it. We don't know Lebron personally so why should she get a pass?

She got arrested for DISORDERLY INTOXICATION while waiting for the valet to get her car so she could DRIVE somewhere. Someone with a previous DUI in their history.

She is absolutely fair game.

This one sounds like it gives a better explanation of what happened. Doesn't make her look any better though

Quote:
NBA star Lebron James' mother was arrested early Thursday after getting into a drunken dustup with a parking attendant at the famed Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach.

Gloria James, 43, was allegedly falling down drunk when she slapped the attendant she thought was too slow in bringing her car, Miami Beach police said.

As she delivered the blow, James apparently lost her balance and fell to the ground, police said.

"Mr. Sorel Rockfeller, a hotel valet worker, claimed he was assaulted by Ms. James, who was angered because her car was taking too long to be delivered," police said in a statement.

"Ms. James was apparently intoxicated as she had bloodshot eyes and a strong odor of alcohol on her breath," the statement read.

A police report revealed that Rockfeller brought the black SUV to the front of the hotel around 4:45 a.m. but that James continued chatting with other guests for 30 minutes, leaving the car idling.

Rockfeller told cops he then turned the motor off and gave the keys to the valet cashier.

Soon after James approached him and yelled, "Where are my f---ing keys?" the report stated.

As Rockfeller tried to explain to her what had happened, James allegedly "struck the victim with an open hand across the right side of his face."

Police were called and James "and the driver of the vehicle were initially uncooperative."

"I don't trust your kind," she allegedly told the officer.

James was charged with misdemeanor battery and disorderly intoxication. She was given a ticket and released into the custody of a Miami Heat team official.

It's not James' first alcohol-related arrest.

In 2006, she was charged with DUI after being pulled over in Ohio when her son played for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

She joined her son in Florida after he decamped to the Miami Heat last year.
If she was that drunk and they knew her to be a VIP then why would Mgmt allow her to leave knowing that if she got into an accident, the name of your business would be linked to it.

Agreed about the driver so at least she's not that bad.

I'm even more LOL'ing at the name of the valet. You have to go through life with the name Rockfeller? lol one 'er' away from 'royalty'
