Lebron's Mother Gets Plea Deal in Valet Altercation
MIAMI (AP) - The mother of Miami Heat star Lebron James has accepted a plea deal that includes dropping a battery charge arising from an altercation with a hotel parking valet.
Gloria James agreed Monday to donate $1,000 to a Haitian earthquake relief fund and perform 20 hours of community service. If she completes the service hours a disorderly intoxication charge will also be dismissed.
The 44-year-old Mrs. James was arrested in April 2011 after valet Rock Feller Sorel at Miami Beach's Fontainebleau Hotel claimed she struck him because of a delay in retrieving her vehicle. Lebron James was not with his mother at the time.
Sorel has also filed a civil lawsuit against Mrs. James seeking thousands of dollars in damages. Her attorney Christopher Lyons declined comment because of the pending lawsuit.
