NBA star LeBron James’ mother, Gloria, was reportedly arrested this morning (April 7) for allegedly attacking a Miami Beach hotel valet employee.
According to initial police report, several witnesses supported the account of the valet, Sorel Rockefeller, who claimed that James assaulted him because it was taking too long to have her car delivered.
Police also reported that when they arrived at the Fontainebleau Hotel at 4:47 a.m., James had a strong odor of alcohol on her breath and her eyes were bloodshot. She was taken to Miami Beach police headquarters and issued a Promise to Appear on charges of simple battery and disorderly conduct.
An inside source told PEOPLE that Gloria slapped the valet in the face.
“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.
Talk about embarrassing Lebron.
