LeBron James calls it a “sensitive subject” after his mother, Gloria James, was arrested Thursday morning at a hotel in Miami Beach after a valet said she assaulted him.

The alleged incident happened at about 4:47 a.m. at the Fontainebleau Hotel.

According to a news release from Miami Beach police, a valet at the hotel, Sorel Rockfeller, told officers Gloria James assaulted him because she was angry her car was taking too long to be delivered.

The police report states Rockfeller pulled Gloria James’ black SUV up to the valet ramp at Gloria’s request and waited 30 minutes for her to get in it while she was talking to other people outside the hotel. At this point, the valet turned off the car and gave the keys to the cashier.

A short time later, according to the report, James confronted Rockfeller, asking “Where are my (expletive) keys?” and yelled profanities at him. While Rockfeller was explaining the situation, police said James struck him on the right side of his face with an open hand. She lost her balance in the process and fell down.

Police said several witnesses confirmed the statement given by Rockfeller.

“Ms. James was apparently intoxicated as she had bloodshot eyes and a strong odor of alcohol on her breath,” the news release stated.
