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.

I'm not into sports so this is my first time hearing about this woman but it seems she has went off before on people. Cussing at and attacking the valet, she must have been drunk if she fell down after attacking the valet, talking about "I don't trust your kind". WTH.

Whoa....she's got some personal issues that needs to be addressed IMMEDIATELY. Her son must be so proud..*rolling eyes*.

Can you imagine if a famous white woman told a african american cop she "didn't trust his kind".... Just because your child has made some money doesn't mean you can act a fool and put your hands on somebody!

I'm not sure if you're just as uneducated as LeBron's mother, or intentionally being a hypocrite.

You just called somebody a racist, then, in the same comment, made racist remarks yourself.

Ummm, yeah. I love the black train of thought. It's ok to be racist, if you're black....

Exactly what did she mean 'your kind'? Did she mean cops or was it race/ethnicity? Was the police officer white by chance? And if he was, why isn't that as relevant as her comment?
