‘Douche du Jour’: LeBron James’ Mother Arrested after Slapping Miami Hotel Employee
Celebrity gossip site TMZ.com reports that James was leaving a nightclub in the hotel at around 4:30 in the morning when the alleged altercation occurred. Police say several witnesses corroborated valet Sorel Rockfeller’s account of the incident.
LeBron James, who plays for the Miami Heat, said “it’s very sensitive because it’s your mother, of course. People around me are helping me, helping her.” “You have to move forward,” the 7-time NBA all-star and 2-time NBA MVP added. “It is my life. Just try to not let things be a distraction. I have a job to do. It’s a personal matter that’s being taken care of. She’s fine.”
This isn’t Gloria James’ first run-in with the law. She was arrested for drunk driving in 2006 in Akron, Ohio and charged with reckless driving, speeding, disorderly conduct and control of a motor vehicle under the influence. James received a suspended sentence, paid a fine and completed a drug and alcohol class following the incident.
