Charles Barkley Busted


SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Charles Barkley has been arrested on
suspicion of drinking and driving.
Gilbert police Lt. Eric Shuhandler says an officer with a task
force that targets drunken drivers saw the former NBA star run a
stop sign around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday morning in Scottsdale.
Shuhandler says Barkley declined to submit to a breath test but
was given a blood test. The results have not come in.
After Barkley was processed, he was cited and released.
Shuhandler says Barkley left the scene in a cab.
Barkley played 16 NBA seasons for the Philadelphia 76ers,
Phoenix Suns and Houston Rockets, and played on the USA Olympic
"Dream Team" in 1992 and 1996. He was an 11-time NBA All-Star and
league MVP in 1993.
