MIAMI — The mother of Miami Heat forward LeBron James was arrested on a misdemeanor assault charge early Thursday morning at a Miami Beach hotel, area media outlets reported.

Gloria James was arrested following an incident at the Fontainebleau Hotel, Miami Beach police said, according to multiple media reports. She was released early Thursday morning.

James allegedly assaulted a parking attendant at the hotel, according to WPLG-TV.

The Heat played the Milwaukee Bucks at home Wednesday night, and Gloria James has routinely attended her son’s home games. The Heat lost Wednesday, 90-85.

Gloria James has been in trouble with the law in the past. She was arrested in 2006 in Ohio on a drunken driving charge.
