Charles Barkley

Charles Barkley has embarked on a judge imposed journey to correct his ill behavior:

Former NBA star Charles Barkley turned himself into police on Saturday (March 7) to begin serving a three-day sentence for a DUI charge, stemming from a New Year’s Eve arrest.

According to the Associated Press, the basketball commentator reported to Phoenix’s Tent City Saturday morning, and he’s already decked out in official jail gear.

TMZ reports that he’s wearing a black and white striped jumpsuit, with the jail’s famous pink boxer shorts.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio says that Barkley has been placed in a private tent for his own safety, but has already been conversing with other inmates.

The former Phoenix Suns star was arrested on December 31st, after he ran a stop sign at around 1:30 a.m. Once pulled over, the officer smelled alcohol, and conducted a field sobriety test, which Sir Charles reportedly failed. However, he refused a breathalyzer, but was later given a blood test, said reports.

He’s also been allowed to speak in a press conference with cameras later today a well.

Three whole days!!!  How will he ever make it??

    I like your post!:)

    I hope he checks on DMX while he’s on vacation. Why did he wait until he got old and gray to act a fool? Charles should be working with stuttering children instead of wearing pink in jail. I know he can afford hiring a driver.

    Listen, you ignorant bastards:

    He didn’t get special treatment by getting three days. That is the standard across the country for a person with no previous history of DUI, and no priors.

    Learn something before you spout off.

    He may be getting preferential treatment somewhere, but that is not it.

    Move on.

    Charles did something really dumb but I cannot help but like the guy. I wonder if the TNT guys will create a graphic of him in pink underwear. Hopefully, they won’t. I don’t want that mental picture. These tv execs are slipping. Imagine this as a reality show mini-series.

    He is my favoite! His photos were seen at wealthy men site___w e a l t h y R o m a n c e.c o m____last week. It is said he is already in relationship with a young beautiful woman on that site now.
