Not much of anything-I imagine he'll stop at a bar for a few drinks after he serves his "time."

I think he'll last, 10 days isn't too bad.

If it was a regular Joe, he would of been in the slammer much longer. So does this mean he won't be on this thursday?

Dang that sucks. Barkley has messed up a lot more than I first expected. Can't wait to see his reaction to this on Thursday if he even shows up...

no he wouldn't. that's the mandatory/standard sentence. he didn't get a break at all. there's no way around this law in AZ

10 days in LA County Jail = 12 to 24 hrs

that's how long it takes to process IN (paperwork, clothes, etc.) until you get in a bunker...then go through the whole crap again to process OUT. 2 days tops....especially for a DUI.

they would rather have someone out and PAYING for the alcohol classes then rotting in prison. its all about he MULA!

i dont know about AZ though...he might serve the whole ten. not too sure....

He's actually opting for 5 days
It starts on a Saturday so that means he gets released on Wednesday. He can still do TNT lol. I'm joking. He'll probably want to rest at home

I'd take the 10 days over an alcohol program. At least in jail you get a roof over your head and play "Don't go near THAT table, because that's La Eme's table." In an alcohol program, you get to hear stories of how the group member's mother's didn't hug them when they were kids.

Pretty weak Charles. If you're going to jail, you gotta go for at least a few weeks. Otherwise you look hella stupid and that's no story to tell the kids.

Barkley's public smart *** persona is going to get him corn-holed in jail. We'll see who's in his fave five after he gets out.

Barkley has to be one of the biggest hypocrites I've ever seen. Always willing to talk down on others of how stupid they are, but what does he do?

I love everyone saying "dont drop the soap".

You guys know that he's probably going to a workhouse, not a prison. There probably are individual showers as well... and if not, most of his other inmates are just other DUI/DWI offenders.

Wow brutal! If that was in California he would have gotten a slap on the hand and a fine.
No jail time for a 1st offense.

That's all it is for now.
