Basketball superstar LeBron James' mother Gloria James was arrested at a posh Miami Beach Hotel early Thursday morning after getting into an altercation with a car parking valet attendant,RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.
The mother of the NBA's most celebrated player was taken into custody at the swanky Fontainebleau resort in Miami Beach around 4:57 am ET Thursday.
A source at the star-studded hotel exclusively told RadarOnline.com: “The incident happened after she pulled into the hotel during the early hours of Thursday morning.
“She got into an altercation with one of the car parking valets who works for a private company contracted by the Fontainebleau.
“The police were called to the scene and she was subsequently arrested. It is not believed any alcohol was involved in the dispute.”
No other details are being made available at this time, and a spokesperson from the famous hotel told RadarOnline.com that they would not be making a comment because while police investigations were on-going.
A spokesperson for the Miami Beach Police Department tells us that James could be charged with simple battery, but the case is still under review.
If she is cited with simple battery, Gloria could be released on her own recognizance, and a mug shot would therefore not be taken.
This is not the first time Gloria has had a brush with police: she also arrested in Akron, Ohio for drunken driving back in January, 2006 .
In May of that same year, she pleaded no contest to four charges in connection with the incident. She had to perform 100 hours of community service, cough up $550 in fines and damages, and attend a class on the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse.
She also caused a minor stir last spring when rumors sprouted she'd been secretly dating her son's then-teammate, Delonte West.
Meanwhile -- as for her famous son -- LeBron racked up 29 points in the Heat’s 90-85 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks Wednesday night in Miami.
