The mother of Miami Heat superstar LeBron James accepted a plea deal on Monday stemming from an altercation with a hotel parking valet.

Gloria James, 44, agreed to donate $1,000 to a Haitian earthquake relief fund and perform 20 hours of community service in exchange for dropping a disorderly intoxication battery charge.

James was arrested in April 2011 after valet Rock Feller Sorel claimed she hit him because she was incensed that he took too long to retrieve her car at Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach.

Sorel has also sued the elder James for the incident.

According to the Miami Beach Police Department, James had a strong odor of alcohol on her breath and had bloodshot eyes during the altercation, which took place at approximately 4:40 in the morning.

It was not the first run-in with the law for James' mother, who was also arrested in 2006 in Ohio for driving under the inflence. During that episode, James kicked out the window of a police car after being detained.
