Charles Barkley Arrested for Drunk Driving

By  | 


Yes, it’s true, another celebrity arrest and this time it was basketball star Charles Barkley. He’s looking a tad bit sweaty in the above mug shot. Ew.

He was arrested early Wednesday morning (December 31) in Scottsdale, Arizona after allegedly running a red light. The 45 year old hoopster, who is running for office btw, declined to give a breath test when the officer pulled him over.

The officer took him to a mobile command post and he was issued a citation for driving while intoxicated and was released.

Police Lt. Eric Shuhandler issued the arrest and had this to say about Barkley:

"He was very nice and professional. There was nothing unusual about how he was taken into custody," Shuhandler said. "He was treated exactly like we treat anybody else."

He also said that Barkley was cooperative and civil and the entire process went without incident.

Tsk Tsk Mr. Charles Barkley. You better stay in this New Year’s Eve and reflect on what you’ve done. 🙂
