Gloria James, the mother of Basketball star LeBron James, was arrested early Thursday morning and cited with "misdemeanor simple battery" following a scuffle at the Miami Beach Hotel, RadarOnline is exclusively reporting.

James was arrested and taken into custody around 4:57AM after she "got into an altercation with one of the car parking valets who works for a private company contracted by the Fontainebleau," according to a source.

Details remain scarce, though the source added that "the police were called to the scene and she was subsequently arrested. It is not believed any alcohol was involved in the dispute."

According to the report, James -- who in 2006 was arrested for drunk driving -- will appear in court at a later date. A mugshot was not taken.
