Charles Barkley “On Leave” From TNT

chuck-on-tntSo today it was announced that Sir Charles was legally drunk when he was arrested in Gilbert, AZ after leaving a night club at 1:30 in the morning. So tell us something we didn’t know! We all saw the infamous mugshot photo which clearly showed that after he reached the point of having one too many…he drank like 7 or 8 more. He was stopped by police for allegedly running a stop sign. He later said that he was trying to get back around the corner to pick up a girl who he said had done him the best “favor” he’d ever had in his life just a week earlier. So how drunk was he? Well, let’s just say that Mr. Barkley was WASTED! The legal blood alcohol limit in Arizona is .08, his blood alcohol level was .149 which is nearly twice the legal limit.  

Because of the allegations levied against him he has taken a reported “leave of absence” from broadcasting NBA basketball games on TNT with Kenny Smith and Ernie Johnson. What that means is, after this latest incident Sir Charles just got himself fired. That sucks too because I think he’s one of he funniest people in sports on TV, but I have to say that when all of this went down, this move was very easy to see coming. Good luck Chuck, now you have time to work on that terrible golf swing of yours.
