Charles Barkley Started Early ... Arrested on Suspicion of DUI
NBA star Charles Barkley speaks during the Ante Up for Africa …

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.

The Impolitic Barkley


There are certain kinds of incidents that can adversely affect your political ambitions. Case in point: Potential Alabama gubernatorial hopeful Charles Barkley's brutal honesty when asked by police where he was heading before his arrest on charges of driving under the influence in Scottsdale, Ariz., on New Year's Eve.

"You want the truth?" Barkley asked the interviewing officer, according to a police report obtained and posted online by TheSmokingGun.com. "I was gonna drive around the corner and get [oral sex]." Barkley then said the woman in the car with him at the time of his arrest had performed oral sex on him one week earlier.

And how's this for a sign of impairment? The report goes on to say that Barkley, while being processed, joked to a civilian police employee that he would "tattoo my name on your [rear end]" if it would get him out of the DUI. He quickly corrected himself: "I'll tattoo your name on my [rear end]." All told, however, the officer noted that Barkley was "cordial and respectful" throughout.
