View Full Version : Barkley Busted for DUI

12-31-2008, 09:40 AM
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Charles Barkley was arrested on suspicion of drinking and driving early Wednesday morning.


An officer with a law enforcement task force that targets drunken driving saw the former NBA star run a stop sign around 1:30 a.m., said Gilbert police Lt. Eric Shuhandler.

Barkley declined to submit to a breath test but was given a blood test. The results weren't immediately available.

After Barkley was processed, he was cited and released. He left in a cab, Shuhandler said.

Shuhandler said there was nothing remarkable about Barkley's arrest and that it is customary to release people after they've been arrested on suspicion of DUI.

"There was nothing unusual about how he was taken into custody," Shuhandler said. "He was treated exactly like we treat anybody else."

Barkley was arrested in Scottsdale's Old Town area, one of the trendiest spots in the Phoenix metro area.

Barkley played 16 NBA seasons for the Philadelphia 76ers, Phoenix Suns and Houston Rockets, and played on the USA Olympic "Dream Team" in 1992 and 1996. He was an 11-time NBA All-Star and league MVP in 1993.

thats just turrible what a knucklehead

I like Charles, he must have some issues if he cant control his gambling and alcohol issues. Laughing about it isnt right, whether he has made stupid comments or not. He maybe a very controversial figure, but what he says has truth to it.

Get back on track Bark.

12-31-2008, 04:03 PM
Good riddance. He can't control much of anything, be it gambling, alcohol or simply his word choice. Karma's a *****, you cause controversy with your words, you become controversy with your actions, I hope he's fired.

His mugshot (my avatar) is pretty funny lookin'.

to be honest with u this guy is getting on my last nerve. He talks to much. Some things he says have merit but he follows it up with stupid things. When u talk to much that happens. Charles always had talent but his poor diet, lousy attitude and lack of commitment has not gotten him a title. Jordan& pippen always said Charles was lazy and fat and lacked the drive to be better. Personally, I never liked him as a person, he was a good player but he got issues.

I cant understand why he would tell the world hes not a role model but try to explain important political issues to American on TV and not expect young people to listen. Now hes drinking and driving.

Grow up Charles.

Missing56&33 are you stupid, Charles makes the tnt overtime wat it is, with out him, it would be dull, like the old days. give me a break, when the laker owner got caught driving on the other side of the free way no one, said anything, but if Charles a black man does it, the media is out to get him. wow okay the man made a couple of mistakes in his life, no one is perfect. You guys are inhumane, you don't show anyone mercy.

its not coz his black legendkiller , its coz he a popular public figure thats why the media beat up the story. the lakers owner aint excactly a popular public figure.if the same thing happened to tom brady or peyton manning the media would beat up the story as well.

There goes his Alabama governorship. I knew this will happen after he was running his mouth that he always carry a loaded gun on TNT. He also told the cops that all he wanted was a blow job and that is why he was in a hurry and that if the cop get him off, he will tattoo the cops name on his butt (gay?).

The dude has no credibility anymore. TNT needs to fire him.

I saw in PErez Hilton that Barkley was out to get a blowjob,. that's why he was speeding. NO JOKE.
