Turrible! Charles Barkley Cited For DUI

by Ryne Nelson

Arizona police arrested Charles Barkley last night on charges of driving while impaired.

The AP reports an officer pulled Barkley over in Scottsdale after noticing that he ran a stop sign.

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.

Sir Charles declined a breath test but was given a blood test. Results are not yet available.

While we wait for more word, we can check out pictures taken at the mobile command post, where the blood tests were administered. People snapped pictures with their phones, which (natch) appeared on TMZ.

    In his defense, there was an emergency at the Krispy Creme Store. Something about taste testing new doughnuts for the New Year and needing his expertise …

    This just decreases his already slim hopes of being governor of Alabama. His opponent is going to have a thick folder of dirt to throw at Chuck.

    Somebody needs to make sure that Rafer gets the TMZ link. So he can take some lessons on how to behave when he gets pulled over by people doing there jobs.

    I would pay to see Lebron sound off on Sir Charles, especially after Barkely criticized him a few weeks back.
