Sir Charles Gets Jail Time

Charles Barkley is going to have to do 5 days in jail, maybe 10, after pleading guilty to drunken-driving charges in Scottsdale, Ariz. If you recall, Sir Charles got arrested after running a stop sign and refusing to take a breathalizer test once he was pulled over. At the time, CB told cops he was in a hurry to get a blow job, claiming the girl he was going to see had given him the best bj he'd ever had and that he was in a hurry to see her. Charles was sentenced to 10 days in jail -- but will only do five if he completes an alcohol education program. Chuck was also fined $2,000. It is not clear if he will serve his time in Arizona's 'Tent City' jail, where rapper DMX is currently cooling his heels.
Charles took a six-week leave of absence from his basketball analyst job with TNT but returned recently after apologizing for the incident. "I think that a DUI is unacceptable," he stated. "That can't happen and I've got to challenge other people, not just celebrities or jocks. You have to really think before getting behind the wheel after you've been drinking."
Barkley, 45, had a blood-alcohol level of .149 percent, nearly twice the legal limit of .08 percent in Arizona when he was pulled over.
