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.

@ #27

See that's where you are wrong. Black people (or any other color)can not do whatever te hell they want. They must act civilized and not run around slapping people in the face.


Why are you so racist? Its 2011 black people can do whatever te hell we want. Your obsessed with black people just like any other racist. Cause the truth is you want to be black so the hate you show for us is actually jealousy. You Pale small Di-CK Loser

Hey #27...newsflash for ya buddy...I would much rather have moistened baby soft pale skin over ashy, dry and distorted looking black skin any day. And as far as small apendages and trying to discount my fellow man by disparaging them for their size: I have been with 3 black men and they are NOTHING in comparison to some of the white men that I have been with. So I don't know what kinda donkey trail your on but you need to step the f*ck off. Oh...and as far as being jealous: LOL. Jealous of a race that has distorted thoughts of how a country should be run? Jealous of being part of a high crime rate race? Jealous of the high ratio of your own kind killing your own kind and others around you because you feel like everyone owes you something? Jealous because 85% of ya bring nothing but trash to this country? Tell ya what...I'll make a deal with ya. Bring me an upstanding, tactful, educated, classy, moon bat without a racist bone in their body and I will go back to Africa for you.

So let me get this straight. A BLACK woman says to a white police officer "I don't trust your kind". We certainly don't hear THAT story on the evening news do we? No offense to TMZ but we'll never hear this on a serious news program or in TIME Magazine or anything with that reputation. Had it been a white woman saying that to a black cop you can be sure The ACLU and NAACP would have been ALL over it!!! And some people in this country think that racism runs one way. Here's proof that black people are just as racist as everyone else. Yet it seems to be OK.

She seems like she belongs back in the ghetto. Trash with money is always trouble.

Of course she, "doesn't trust his kind." She doesn't trust anyone. She is a liar, and so she thinks everyone else is a liar too.

So is the officer white?? TMZ failed to relay what "kind" she didn't trust? White, Hispanic, or black cop?
