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.

This reminds me of when Ronald Reagan first ran for president... his campaign had taken him on to the city of Harlem, New York where he attempted to meet with the locals there, the various minorities and other groups... he was met with continuous boos and hisses...

In his answer to the cool reception was :"If you people would just be quiet and listen to me... I can't help 'YOU PEOPLE' until I become president!!"

"We all know what happened after that..!"

"Don't worry Ms. James... help is on the way!"

"40 acres and a mule..."

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

Maybe he doesn't trust your kind either. And if you were so enamored of your own kind, you just set a stellar example of it, eh?

@183(whocares)"I'm surprised that your parents allow you to play around on the Internet like this... you have to be a child for not knowing your facts...

There are actually only two kinds of people in this world...

The first were Africans the original people of mother Earth...

The rest - people like yourself fall under the category that would make them the descendants of those first people from the Motherland Africa.

In other words... "there's only Africans and descendants of Africans!!"

Before your parents kick you off the computer... my question to you is... which one are you ?!?

After you answer that question... turn your computer off and go to bed.

some really disgusting comments here. the anonymity of the internet allows it. awful comments. why is race in issue in this? makes no sense and is absolutely irrelevant unless people are relying upon false, tired stereotypes. this woman clearly has some problems. she should not have put her hands on the valet. wrong thing to do. she'll be held accountable for that. the separate issue should be what can be done to help her? clearly, she has a drinking problem. nothing to joke about or name call over.

Was the cop black? That's the only thing that would make her statement logical.

Just like her son. Looks just like him and is a punk. He is a bigger version of Iverson. 6 and 5 behind Jordan and Bryant. Self proclaimed King of queens. Miami CSCry.

Gee, someone made a statement like that when addressing the Black Caucus, it was Ross Perot who referred to them as "their kind" and he was called everything but a white man.

Why isn't what she said considered racist? Well I'll say it, that was a racial slur and she should be held liable for it.
