Lebron’s Miami Heat lost last night…and so did his mom Gloria; who was thrown in the slammer shortly after!
Gloria James, mother to NBA superstar Lebron James was arrested early this morning after she allegedly got drunk and slapped a valet attendant at the Fountainbleu Hotel on SouthBeach…
According to TMZ:
Gloria was partying at LIV nightclub with some of her girlfriends earlier in the evening … but when she tried to leave the hotel, she got into an altercation with one of the valet parking attendants.
We’re told Gloria allegedly assaulted the valet. Cops received a call about the incident at 4:47 AM. Gloria was eventually arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor assault. The valet was not arrested.
Gloria was released just a few hours later.
How did this all start you ask? Well apparently she became upset because it was taking the attendant to long to bring her car around and she became infuriated.
The valet says Gloria then approached him and stated, “Where are my f**king keys?!” and continued yelling profanities at him. Then for no apparent reason she slapped himacross the right side of his face and in the process causing herself to lose her balance and falling to the ground.
The Miami PD released a statement:
“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. Several witnesses supported Mr. Rockfeller’s account of what occurred.”
The statement continues. “Both Ms. James and the driver of the vehicle were initially uncooperative with the investigating officer. Ms. James was apparently intoxicated as she had bloodshot eyes and a strong odor of alcohol on her breath.”
“Ms. James was arrested and taken to the Miami Beach Police Department where she was processed, issued a Promise to Appear and subsequently released.”
