Some lucky inmates just got some pretty great news: For about five days, they’re going to have a world-class entertainer in their surroundings. Thanks to his DUI, Charles Barkley is going to the slammer.

TMZ files the report:

Barkley just pleaded guilty to 2 counts of driving under the influence and pleaded “responsible” to running a stop sign for the December 31st incident in Scottsdale. Barkley was sentenced to 10 days in jail — but will only do five if he completes an alcohol education program. Barkley was also fined $2,000.

Barkley will begin his sentence on March 21 — but it’s unclear if he will serve time in Arizona’s famed Tent City Jail, where they make the inmates wear pink.

Assuming they don’t fire him, TNT has to film at least some of Chuck’s stay in the jail, right?
