Gloria James opted to take her talents to jail, apparently.

Gloria, mother of LeBron James (on right in photo), was arrested in Miami this morning after she allegedly slapped a valet because he was taking too long in delivering her car. Also, according to a report by TMZ, she was “apparently intoxicated” at the time of the incident.

As per the Miami Beach PD statement that was released:

"Mr. Sorel Rockfeller, a hotel valet worker, claimed he was assaulted by Ms. James, who was angered because her car was taking too long to be delivered. Several witnesses supported Mr. Rockfeller’s account of what occurred.

"Both Ms. James and the driver of the vehicle were initially uncooperative with the investigating officer.  Ms. James was apparently intoxicated as she had bloodshot eyes and a strong odor of alcohol on her breath.

"Ms. James was arrested and taken to the Miami Beach Police Department where she was processed, issued a Promise to Appear and subsequently released."

Gloria was ultimately charged with simple battery and disorderly intoxication.

This is not the first time Miss James has been in trouble with the law. According to the Miami Herald, Gloria James pleaded no contest to DUI and other charges in 2006.
