LeBron's Mom to Cop -- 'I Don't Trust Your Kind'

4/7/2011 12:38 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

LeBron James' mother slapped a Miami Beach valet so hard in the face, she lost her balance and fell to the ground -- then told a police officer, "I don't trust your kind" ... this according to the police report.

Gloria James

The arresting officer says he tried to question 43-year-old Gloria James about the alleged incident at the scene early this morning ... but he got "no response just a stare."  After a while, she eventually admitted to having a "minor verbal altercation" with the valet.

The cop says the valet explained that he retrieved James' car and put it on the valet ramp in front of the hotel while Gloria and a female driver stood around talking to people for 30 minutes. Finally, the valet says he turned the car off.

The valet says Gloria then approached him and stated, "Where are my f**king keys and continued yelling profanities at the victim."

The report explains, "Then for no apparent reason the arrestee struck the victim with an open had [sic] across the right side of his face  and in the process causing herself to lose her balance and falling to the ground."

After Gloria was transported to a nearby police station, the report continues, a shift commander -- Lt. Acosta -- tried to speak with James who responded, "I'm trying to trust you but I don't trust your kind ... I don't trust that officer who arrested me."

Gloria then told police she "was not going to cooperate because she did nothing wrong."

UPDATE: Police have released a photo of Gloria being taken into custody.

LeBron's mom was released to a Miami Heat executive according to the do***ent attached.

How many of you here work for a corporation that would send an executive to get your mom out of jail if she battered someone?

This is just too funny. Lebron i hope that someone in your camp read this.
1- Your sons paycheck comes from the company that he represents. "MIAMI HEAT" 80% + of the population in Miami is Latin/Hispanic., and you dont trust us. ha then you should not get pay by the fans who go to see your son play.

2-If you dont trust 80%+ of the population of the town that your son represents ; then leave back to where you came from. Ohhh that's Cleveland. Are you welcome there?

3-The Miami Heat should tell their employees that if they cant control their camp they should play somewhere else.

4- Mrs. Lebron don't get so high on your horse. Your son is no Michael Jordan or Kobe Bryant or Magic Johnson or Larry Bird. He did not get a ring in Cleveland and Madam he is not getting one this year either.

5-Thank you Madam you are really one of a kind. Dont trust Latins/Hispanics but slap/Hit your kind.

What a biotch this woman is. Just because her son is a popular basketball player she thinks she can get away with what she did? I bet she's the kind of woman who thinks it is not wrong to hit a man, but if the man hit her she's be wanting to get him locked up in prison. She's acting ghetto-ish too and causing embarassment to her son. Question, if this the same mom who gave her son a "hummer"?

America is going downhill fast. Entitlement, Nuvo Riche, Ignorance, no class, no education, no character, no morals, no kindness, arrogance... shall I go on.

This lady is in a position of wealth and has done nothing to deserve it, yet demands respect from others she is coming in contact with. Why, because her son can play Basketball?

What kind of contribution do you think that is to society? He plays a game and gives his mother money. He has no father.

When we put these kinds of people up on a pedestal and worship them as someone special, we marginalize the real heroes in our society.

The entitlement disease that exists in the TMZ, needs to be contained.

She may be a drunken mess, but you can hardly blame black women (or men) for not trusting the cops. People are still regularly stopped in Mass for DWB (Driving While Black).
