Cops were called about an incident at 4:47 in which Gloria was accused of attacking a valet. She was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor assault.

It's unclear at this time what sparked Gloria James' altercation with a Miami parking attendant, or whether the misdemeanor charges against her will be pursued.

The valet wasn't arrested, and Gloria has been released from custody. A rep for the hotel confirmed the James incident, but had no further comment.

LeBron, meanwhile, had a tough night in Miami as well. The Heat lost to the Bucks, a blow to their chances of clinching the #2 seed in the East. Weak.

UPDATE: More details have emerged about Gloria's rampage ...

The police report says Gloria hit the valet so hard in the face, she lost her balance and fell to the ground, then told a police officer "I don't trust your kind."

The arresting officer says he tried to question 43-year-old Gloria James about the incident at the scene early, but he got "no response, just a stare."

After a while, she eventually admitted to having a "minor verbal altercation."

The cop says the valet explained that he retrieved James' car and put it on the valet ramp in front of the hotel while Gloria and a female driver stood around talking to people for 30 minutes. Finally, the valet says he turned the car off.

The valet, Rockfeller Sorel, says Gloria then approached him and stated, "Where are my f**king keys" and continued yelling profanities at the victim.

The report explains, "Then for no apparent reason the arrestee struck the victim with an open had [sic] across the right side of his faceĀ  and in the process causing herself to lose her balance and falling to the ground."

The valet parker told cops Gloria smacked him with an open hand on the right side of his face, and after the incident, he sought medical attention.

He doesn't seem to have any visible injuries in this photo, though. The man says he has already met with a lawyer to discuss his legal options.
