Charles Barkley Arrested For DUI
Basketball star Charles Barkley was arrested early Wednesday in Arizona on suspicion of drinking and driving.
The 45-year-old former NBA player reportedly ran a stop sign in the Old Town section of Scottsdale at about 1:30 a.m. Gilbert police Lt. Eric Shuhandler says police pulled Barkley over, took him to a DUI mobile processing center (see picture), and administered a blood test after declining to submit to a breath test. After Barkley was processed, he was cited and left in a cab.
Barkley played 16 NBA seasons for the Philadelphia 76ers, Phoenix Suns and Houston Rockets.
This might spoil his plans to become governor of his home state of Alabama in 2014. In October, he announced that he would be a candidate!
