The video was taken as the mother of the Miami Heat superstar was booked for allegedly slapping a hotel parking valet who took too long to get her car.
Although the arrest video doesn’t have sound, police said James was uncooperative and argued for a while, telling them, “I’m trying to trust you, but I don’t trust your kind.”
“You can clearly see that she is giving the officers a hard time, being condescending and rude,” said Miami Beach Police Sgt. Wayne Jones. “She didn’t feel like she did anything wrong and she wanted to go home.”
