Charles Barkley Suspected of DUI

Charles Barkley, former NBA star for the Philadelphia 76ers and Phoenix Suns, was arrested early this morning for suspicion of drunk driving.

Barkley was pulled over by local members of a law enforcement task force after running a stop sign.  He refused to take a breath test, but submitted to a blood test, the results of which are not yet available.

After being processed and cited, he was released and left the Old Town area scene, one of the trendy areas of the Phoenix metro area, in a taxi.

After Barkley’s arrest, Gilbert police Lt. Eric Shuhandler stated that “there was nothing unusual about how he was taken into custody” and “was treated exactly like we treat anybody else.”
