LeBron James's mother, Gloria, was arrested early Thursday after an alleged altercation at the Fontainebleau Hotel on Miami Beach.

"There was an incident involving Mrs. Gloria James and an employee of our valet parking provider while she was exiting the hotel early Thursday morning," a spokesperson for Fontainebleau Miami Beach, said in a statement. (Lebron, meanwhile, had a game that night.)

According to a source on the scene, Gloria and some girlfriends came to party at club LIV at the Fontainebleau, where she was being "sweet as pie" during the the night out. When it came time to leave around 5 a.m., a security guard escorted her to the valet area to collect her car. The escort was not because she was behaving badly, the source says, but because it's a Fontainebleau policy to provide their VIP guests with an escort.

"When Gloria went to get in her car, she said she couldn't find her keys which she was told were in the car," the source tells PEOPLE. "She got angry quickly and swung her bag at the valet person who brought the car."
