TMZ has learned ... a witness at the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach told investigators Gloria James didn't stop running her mouth after she called the Haitian-born Rockfeller Sorel a "f**king n**ger" ... telling him, "take a boat and go back to your country."

As we previously reported -- Gloria was arrested for battery and public intoxication after the incident ... and Sorel has since filed a civil lawsuit against her over the altercation ... claiming emotional distress, humiliation, and mental anguish.

The witness adds, Gloria's friend tried to pull her away from the fight before it got physical ... but Gloria allegedly insisted, "I'm gonna be ghetto."

Calls to Gloria's attorneys were not immediately returned.

What a classy lady...LeBron must be so proud of her. Sure hope she gets some jail time for this...she's a real loser. And let's hope the guy wins the civil lawsuit.

"no, I'm gonna be ghetto".
She was certainly successful, wasn't she??
People like this,who think *they* are the celebrity (ball player, etc) just because their kid has accomplished something. Pfft....
And her line of, " do you know who I am?", she must be related to DUIna Lohan. Lol

Please...gonna get ghetto?! She was BORN GHETTO. Look at that face! No refinement whatsoever! Looks like a go-riller. You can move people "out of the ghetto", but you can't move the ghetto out of them. Hoot-rat is right! "Do you know who I am?!", she says. He shoulda replied, "You look like an ole "Hoot-rat" drag-queen to me!" Money don't buy class. I've worked in the hospitality business for many years, I love it...but yet these people that "DEMAND" respect with the line, "Do you know who I am?!" get me every time. I just reply by calling them by their name as registered and if they were to act-out, I let them know that doesn't give them liberty to be abusive against me, nor my staff. If you want to have a conversation about the situation, I'll be glad to, but I will not stand here listening to abuse. If they continue, I call the authorities. I don't let them upset me. I've got some happy and wonderful guests to take care of.
