As LBS reported earlier, Gloria James, mother of NBA superstar LeBron James, was arrested Wednesday night for allegedly beating up a valet employee at the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami.
LBS has obtained the official police report of the incident and it has some interesting details. The arrest was made at 5:15 AM on Thursday morning. We all know that unless you are going to work at that hour, nothing good can come of it.
The police report states that when the officer arrived on the scene, James’ SUV was trying to drive off. When he stopped the vehicle to question Gloria and her driver, they both refused to answer. Gloria also had “bloodshot eyes and a strong oder of alcohol on her breath.” However, she was just the passenger of the vehicle.
But all of this pales in comparison to the final line of the police report. It states that after Gloria James was taken in to custody, she refused to take photos, requested a phone call and was “released to Miami Heat Executive Mr. Steve Stowe.” Not even her own son came to pick her up? At this point, it is unclear if she even called LeBron or if her permitted phone call was made directly to the Miami Heat organization. But the simple fact that LeBron wouldn’t be the one picking her up if off-putting.
