Basketball phenom LeBron James’ mother Gloria James was recently arrested for drunk driving, disorderly conduct, and damaging police equipment. Gloria was pulled over by the two off-duty police officers who were moonlighting as security guards for the Akron Metropolitan Housing Authority on Friday night. The response LeBron gave before his game on Saturday were:
I don’t have all the info of what’s going on. Once I find that out and once I sit down with my family, you know, I’ll be able to comment on it a little bit better.
The officers states that Gloria almost drove her SUV into the officers car. They also stated that Gloria smell like alcohol and appeared to be disoriented. The officer had a hard time putting the cuffs on her and after she was put in the back seat, the officer said, “She kept leaning forward, screaming, hollering and carrying on.”
Looks like Gloria was bored and just took out the Cadillac for a joy ride thinking she was still able to drive after drinking. She was released on $2,500 bond and will appear in court on Monday.
