Gloria has agreed to stay away from Sorel and donate $1,000 to the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund as part of the deal. The court will dismiss a public intoxication charge against the Miami Heat superstar’s mother as long as she also completes 20 hours of community service.
In the footage caught by video cameras, Gloria gets up in Sorel’s face about the parking situation, falls down and gets back up, then swings her purse before bystanders eventually intervene. Lebron was not at the scene.
