Usually Miami Beach is a place where professional athletes go to get in trouble, not their mothers. Several reports claim that LeBron James' mother Gloria James was arrested early this morning at the Fontainebleau resort and could be hit with misdemeanor charges of simple battery. Updated.
Very few details have been released about the arrest, and there are currently conflicting reports as to whether or not she has been released from custody. Though there are unconfirmed rumors that James, who is in her early 40s, got into a scuffle with a valet at the posh hotel on 4401 Collins Ave.
Update: According to Local 10, James was indeed arrested for hitting a parking attendant at the resort. She is still being questioned at Miami Beach police headquarters.
