Charles Barkley was arrested around 1:30 am on December 31 in the Old Town section of Scottsdale, Az on suspicion of driving under the influence. Gilbert police noticed Charles’ 2005 Infiniti run a stop sign, so they pulled him over. After noticing the smell of alcohol on his breath, they administered standard field sobriety tests. They found sufficient evidence to ask him to submit to a breathalyzer. Charles refused, so he was taken into a mobile DUI processing center, where they administered a blood test. 45 year old Charles was released, pending the results of the blood test, which should be available in a few days. You can see a photo of the incident here.

Police Lt. Eric Shuhandler said that Charles Barkley was “nice and professional,” and said the entire process took place without incident, and Charles was civil and cooperative.

In a statement, Charles said:

“I am disappointed that I put myself in that situation. The Scottsdale police were fantastic. I will not comment any further as it is a legal matter.”

UPDATE: The reason Charles Barkley sped through that stop sign has come out, and it’s GREAT! He apparently told police that he was in a hurry to to pick up a girl that had “given him a ‘[oral]’ one week earlier.” He described the act as the best one he has ever had. According to the police report, when asked where he was going, Charles responded with “You want the truth? I was gonna drive around the corner and get a [oral].”
