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.

Still no official comment from Lebron James. Doesn't he care about what people are saying about his momma?

Isn't Lebron James going to come and show his support for his own mother? Shame on you James for not speaking directly on this matter, why hide?

You're going to let your mother out there in the cold blowing in the wind and say nothing? Your heartless Lebron James, denying your own mother. I guess the apple didn't fall far from the tree.

So typical. Too much money - doesn't know how to handle it, thinks she's entitled, etc.
Pro sports of full of these kinds. We have a situation now with the Dallas Cowboys and Dez Bryant thinking he can "get away" with unprofessional behavior at NorthPark.
He cuts in line at the Apple store, owes jeweler $, and many more. He'll be broke soon.

Typical comments on here that pertains to the typical article. White people using a negative article about a black celebrity to spout off racists remarks then deny it. Its also funny that they think the white crack head addicted charlie sheen needs a show for his antics. Here's a statistic for you racist. WHITE MALES MAKE UP 76 percent of all drug users. Time for you guys to get off the high horse you meth and crackheads.
