Charles Barkley PF Ex-Philadelphia 76er's
Charles Barkley is a one time NBA MVP who has made the All-Star game 11 times in 11 straight years. His off the field drinking resume is almost just as good. Along with his propensity to Gamble (once admitting to losing $2.5 million in a 6 hour period) his DUI arrest was very impressive.
He was pulled over for running a stop sign, and of course smelled like alcohol and had bloodshot, watery eyes. When asked if he had been drinking he told police, "Yes I have." When asked how much he had drank, he responded, "A couple, I could give you a bullshit answer but I didn't." He was then administered field sobriety tests which he failed, and refused a breathlyzer because his body guard, a police officer, told him to. Police said he was very respectful during the entire situation and he wasn't treated any differently, but apparently he respectfully told police officers that he ran the stop sign because he was "in a hurry to pick up a 'hot' girl for sex." He told the officer, "You want to know the truth? I was gonna drive around the corner and get a blow job," and then explained that he got a blow job from her a week earlier and it was the best in his life. In the jail, he told a jail employee that he's get "my name tattoo'd on your ass" to get him out of the DUI charge, before his drunk ass corrected himself and said he's get "your named tattoo'd on my ass". His BAC was .149 and he spent 10 days in jail (roommates with rapper DMX) for the arrest.
Barkley was enshrined in the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2006
