LeBron's Mom

'Apparently Intoxicated'

4/7/2011 12:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Gloria James -- LeBron's mother -- was "apparently intoxicated" when she allegedly slapped a valet at a fancy Miami Beach hotel this morning ... this according to police.

Gloria James Drunk
The Miami Beach PD released a statement ... explaining, "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."

James was charged with simple battery and disorderly intoxication.    

Sources tell us the valet sought medical attention after the incident -- but is expected to return to work.

# 11, I agree that those comments were racist and ignorant. With that, just because it's 2011, black people or any other race can't do whatever they want. At least when it comes to assault. The crazy b***h assaulted someone because they weren't moving fast enough for her. Her ass belongs in jail!

She is real tough picking on some poor valet. He is probably just some young kid trying to make a living. What a biatch.

The valet sought medical attention, then returned to work. Translation: he saw a doctor, then a lawyer, and will be filing a huge lawsuit for financial compensation regarding the life changing physical and mental damage inflicted by a woman with a incredibly rich athletic son.Gloria(The Shrew that will sue anybody, anytime for any reason) Aldred will be holding the press conference soon and will be parading the "victim" in front of the cameras, most likely in a wheelchair, possibly even from a hospital bed.Any lowlife, s***sucking ambulance chasing attorney, and Gloria, you are the queen of them all, will be able to make some serious change from this.

So, she was drunk? Give her a VIP (Very Intoxicated People) cell. That'll give her the importance she deserves.
