Charles Barkley Arrested On Suspicion Of DUI

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.
