MIAMI (AP) -- The mother of Miami Heat star LeBron James has accepted a plea deal that includes dropping a battery charge stemming 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 also will be dismissed.
The 44-year-old Gloria James was arrested in April 2011 after valet Rock Feller Sorel claimed she hit him because it took him too long to get her car at Miami Beach's Fontainebleau Hotel. LeBron James was not with his mother at the time.
Sorel has also sued Gloria James, seeking thousands of dollars in damages. Her attorney, Christopher Lyons, declined comment because of the pending lawsuit.
