NBA great and commentator Charles Barkley was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence early on December 31, 2008. Barkley was pulled over at around 1:30 AM. Authorities said that Barkley was pulled over after failing to acknowledge a stop sign outside a popular nightclub. Allegedly, after being pulled over Barkley refused to initially take a blood test. Later Barkley did take a blood test and the result is reported as being .149 by local authorities.
