The mother of LeBron James, major star of the Miami Heat, was arrested on charges of assault, battery and disorderly intoxication. A contentious encounter with a valet at a Miami Beach hotel ended with the arrest.
The 43-year-old woman was arrested because she reportedly struck a valet around 5 a.m. in the morning, Miami Beach police told Long Island Criminal Attorneys.
Sources revealed, the woman requested her vehicle from the valet, who brought it to the valet ramp, where it was left running for 30 minutes as James’s mother talked to other hotel patrons. After that, the valet turned off the car and gave the keys to the valet cashier.
When the woman emerged to find her car, she reportedly yelled, “where are my f—ing keys” and swore at the valet.
“Then, for no apparent reason [she] struck the victim with an open hand across the right side of his face and in the process causing herself to lose balance and falling to the ground,” stated a report.
She was about to leave in her vehicle when the police arrived. Sources say she refused to speak at the time. Her friend in the car with her, however, stated there was a “verbal altercation” about the retrieval of the SUV and how they “got up into each other’s faces over the incident.”
James’s mother was “very uncooperative”, police alleged to Queens Criminal Attorneys.
Allegedly, she said, “I’m trying to trust you, but I just don’t trust your kind,” to an officer.
She was released, after refusing to have her picture taken, to a Heat executive, who had no comment. LeBron did address questions from journalists at a later practice.
“You have to move forward. It is my life. Just try not to let things be a distraction. I have a job to do,” he was quoted as saying. “It’s very sensitive because it’s your mother, of course. People around me are helping me, helping her.”
When LeBron was with the Cavaliers, his mother was arrested on DWI charges in Cleveland in 2006.
