Lebron James Reacts to Mother's Arrest
Gloria James, mother of Heat star LeBron James, was released from jail Thursday after being arrested early in the morning outside a Miami hotel for allegedly assaulting a valet. Gloria, who pleaded no contest to DUI in 2006, had a strong odor of alcohol on her breath and had bloodshot eyes when officers arrived on the scene at 4:47 a.m. Thursday, police said. The valet and witnesses told police that he brought the car to the front of the hotel but turned it off after waiting 30 minutes for Gloria. When she walked out to the ramp, she started screaming profanities when she didn't immediately see her car and then slapped the valet.
"It's a sensitive subject," LeBron said after the Heat practiced Thursday afternoon. "It's a personal matter. It's being taken care of."
