Wow, that sucks.... he has been such a role model. Someone with his money has NO EXCUSE to drive drunk as he can easily afford a cab or even a DRIVER.

An EX basketball player got popped for DUI. WHO CARES??? The state has picked up over 1,900 people so far this holiday season. One guy, in Scottsdale......again, who cares. He needs to learn he really isn't as special as he thinks he is.

If you people READ, it says "on SUSPICION of DUI". Nowhere does it say he actually was driving while drunk. Until then you should not judge.

Anyone who drinks and drives is stupid. Especially during holidays when they take special care in setting up DUI checkpoints.

Re: #3

Exactly!!!!!!!!!!!!

The douche bag should hibernate and get out of the lime light. His career is over a hundred years ago. GAL!! Most of these ex/former athletes are nothing after their playing days are over. Barkley is a rude SOB regardless.. drunk or not. LOL.

He would never have been pulled over if he weren't black!!!!! Is there any other reason - I mean, we all run stop signs at 1:30 in the morning. Just wait, like the fact that there are so few black head coaches this pitiful thug will throw the race card.
