Charles Barkley Will Take A leave Of Absence
TNT made an announcement that Charles Barkley will take a leave of absence from his job as NBA commentator due to the results from blood work taken during his recent DUI arrest. Barkley refused to take a Breathalyzer test at the scene, however, his blood-alcohol level was found to be 0.149, nearly twice the legal limit of 0.08 percent, according to the Gilbert Police Department. If you remember Barkley was pulled over Dec. 31 in Scottsdale, Ariz., at 1:27 a.m. after officers saw him run a stop sign. During his arrest, Barkley told police he had been on his way to get oral sex—hence his haste—before he was stopped.
