Report: LeBron’s Mom Arrested on Assault Charge

The Miami Herald is reporting that LeBron James‘ mother, Gloria, allegedly assaulted a parking attendant at the Fontainebleau resort on Miami Beach. She was cuffed for misdemeanor assault: “Miami Beach police reportedly arrested LeBron James’ mother at the Fontainebleau in Miami Beach Thursday morning. According to Miami Beach police Det. Juan Sanchez, Gloria James was taken into custody early Thursday morning at the Fontainebleau Hotel on Miami Beach. She has not been charged but Det. Sanchez says she’ll most likely face a misdemeanor assault charge. This is not the first time that James’ mother has been in trouble with the law. She also was arrested in 2006 in Ohio on a DUI charge.”

    No wonder she went South instead of West, right Delonte?

    I’ve been getting into that show ‘Shameless’ on Showtime recently. Gloria James is basically the female version of Frank Gallagher…getting arrested, sleeping with your kid’s friends, and drunk all the time.

    here we go bringing sh*t about player’s parents into a site that used to completely devoted to basketball, as if she is probably not already humiliated enough and even embarrassed and ashamed for this mishap and for the publicity it is causing lbj.. this is not basketball guys.. wtf SLAM?

  • http://pickandroll.tumblr.com/ airs

    if we were just talking about strictly basketball on this site, it wouldn’t be half as interesting as it is.
    i say, proceed with the delonte jokes!

  • http://www.slamonline.com c_cantrell

    the delonte jokes got old 6 months ago bro.. anyone still trying to crack jokes about delonte n lebrons mom has a very poor sense of humor as it is not the least bit funny anymore, not even original cause everyone has done it at least 30 times a piece on here

  • http://pickandroll.tumblr.com/ airs

    yeah, they are pretty old. haha
    just saying, stories on this site not entirely basketball related aren’t a bad thing.

  • T-Money

    i don’t care one way or the other about lebron’s mom. or lebron himself, for that matter, when he’s not playing basketball. one thing puzzles me, though: a lot of people are taking the delonte rumors as facts even though 1) there is no corroborating evidence and 2) nobody has stepped forward and claimed the story. why?

    Report: Delonte West arrived for a conjugal visit later that afternoon.

    I guess somebody said the name “Delonte West” one too many times.

  • http://slamonline Allenp

    Damn, they brought up a five year old DUI charge. That’s a bit much. I wonder if Marv Albert gets in trouble will they bring up his previous arrests?

  • Anonymosdef

    So this is reported before LeBrons deal with Fenway? Slam is clearly being paid by the owners…

  • flipnoyce

    This post is strictly against Lebrons mom and has nothing to do with LBJ himself or basketball so whats the big deal. This post is wack, just like Gloria was the night before. Moving on…..

  • bike

    She attacks a parking attendent because he was taking too long to deliver her car? To LeBron: cut Mom’s weekly allowance back to about 50 bucks. Obviously you can take Mom out of the ‘hood but you can’t take the ‘hood out of Mom.
