Look, where LeBron James got his toughness from is anyone’s guess. It obviously didn’t stem from his mother who since her inclusion into the sports & gossip pages has done things nothing short of either hilarious (see defending LeBron during a playoff game) or just well … messed up (see the rumor that she slept with Delonte West).

Seeing that LeBron’s too busy making global decisions, falling in the clutch and starring in cartoons at the moment, our attention shall focus to the most hilarious headline of the day: Gloria James getting arrested for doing something Chris Bosh will never do, be a defensive force.

To the block quote:

LeBron James’ mother, Gloria James, was arrested on Thursday morning at the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach.

According to ABC affiliate WPLG, James got into a scuffle with a valet at the hotel and is charged with misdemeanor assault.

She was taken to Miami Beach police headquarters where she is being questioned. The station also reported that James was arrested but will not be booked. Instead, she will be released and have to appear in court at a later date.

This is not the first time James has been in trouble with the authorities.

In 2006, she was arrested by Akron police on charges of drunken driving and disorderly conduct. She was sentenced to three days in a state driving intervention program and fined in court after she pleaded no contest to the misdemeanor charges.

Here’s what I just remembered, it’s spring time. Meaning playoffs. Meaning Gloria James is bound to do something to make us look at her son with even more scrutiny than we already do. I wonder if Delonte is going to grab the gun case and head down to Miami to play Desperado for Gloria’s heart again.
