The Chick Sucked Into Barkley's DUI -- On Tape!

1/6/2009 12:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

So here it is ... the surveillance footage that cops believe shows Charles Barkley blowing through a stop sign -- and picking up the mystery woman he allegedly claimed had a very special oral skill-set.

Play video
The tape -- which also shows a cop car from the DUI task force pursuing Barkley -- was shot from a nearby building in Scottsdale, Arizona on December 31. You first see a woman walking down the street. A short time later, you see Barkley's SUV blow a stop sign, and head in her direction. It appears the SUV stops up the street and picks her up.

Then a cop car comes into frame and chases after the SUV, stopping it for good.

The time code embedded in the footage is one hour off from the time marked in the police report, but we've learned the camera was programmed for Pacific standard time -- not Arizona time -- which is an hour ahead. We're told the camera could only program Pacific, Central and Eastern time.

Barkley is set to face a judge for his DUI arrest on January 20th ... As for the chick, we're thinkin' Sir Charles simply blew that one -- how's that for irony?

So did Barkley at least get his mule copped before the cop stopped him...or did he have to give himself a hand job in jail?

That is the question of the day.

To the guys with the racist comments against Blacks, swear to God, you simply cannot be this racist all the time! LOL
I just don't think its possible that a sane human being could walk around with as much hate and discontent as you do for 24 hours!
How in the world can you be that hateful, shallow and juvenile every moment of your pitiful life?
Some Black kid apparently used to beat you up for lunch money on the regular for the hate to be this deep seated! LoL
I mean all TMZ has to do is post a Black person doing anything and just like clockwork, here you come with the comments and snide remarks.
I'm not even a fan of Charles Barkley's, but you idiot's make it almost impossible to ignore your total lack of social graces!
One thing I know for sure though, I guarantee you'll NEVER say what you typed to Sir Charles face.

The limo didn't stop, the cops didn't go after that. The SUV didn't stop nor did the cops. Shouldn't the cops at least have lights on when pursuing through an intersection?

Sheila, cops pull that stunt all the time. I know because a female cop once tried to give me a ticket for driving 20 miles under the speed limit and for not driving on my side of the road! One problem, we passed each other on the same road! She didn't even have her lights on and I know for a fact those speed guns only work when stationary! Basically, she was trying to imply that I was driving drunk even though a breathalizer would've easily cleared that up! She didn't even have me get out to do that.

Luckily, another cop came along and cleared it up. While he didn't say it to her face, he pretty much told me that's what she was up too.

Back to this story, it wouldn't surprise me one bit if the cops did pull some shady work. Still, Sir Charles shouldn't have put himself in that position. I mean, if you wanted to pay for a BJ, I am sure there are better hookups than getting someone off the streets!
17. The limo didn't stop, the cops didn't go after that. The SUV didn't stop nor did the cops. Shouldn't the cops at least have lights on when pursuing through an intersection?

Every one has done some pretty bad stuff, ( even the arresting cop, the writer of this article, and the people with the hateful comments ) They are not perfect neither is Barkley. One thing for sure he is great at what he does for TNT and they would be making a big mistake letting him go. Maybe everyone should loose their job when they make a mistake on their own time. Lets all hope not.

From the pages of the New England Journal of Health, December 2008, Vol XXICCMM, Issue VIII, (copyrighted einStinE):

one and all,

i must resurrect my hypothesis that of which i am most known: 'Bling
Splatt the Cause of Pre-Mature Death among Rappers'.

As submitted
to the New England Journal of Health, the American
Medical Association, National Geographic, Reader's Digest, and

My postulate that the root cause of death among rappers is not due to
black on black crime, per se. But, due to the inordinate use of metals
within the framework of their upper torso, in the region of what is
known on the street as 'da grill'. Commonly used metals such as
silver, gold, platinum, and an occasional diamond or two (dependent
upon the rappers ability to sell their wares - ie records - ) as
placed in the oral cavity of said rapper, causes reactions such that
mortality rates are a foregone conclusion. There is no cure for
'Bling Splatt", the diagnosis is death.

What causes 'Bling Splatt'? There is no simple answer. My theory
revolves about the idea that low IO levels of said rappers combined
with calcuim and phosphorous (previously stated in street slang as
'da grill')
when mixed with metals and/or metallic objects react such
that positively charged electrons are emitted which when released
within the parietal lobe send such a large electrical pulse
throughout the parietal region of the brain, that the organ cannot
absorb...in essence...KABOOM !!!...the brain has exploded...ie "Brain

Collegues at the Bellevue Mental Hospital, Def Jam Records Inc.,
Johns Hopkins Medical University, and Toys 'R Us are in concert with
my hypothesis, theories, and ideas. They are all in agreement that
more study and review is needed in this arena of medicine. I have
applied for a $500 Billion bailout for study and research and a few
luxury amenities for myself (Mustang Ranch, Nevada trips for me and
the staff, and dubs for my Prius). President-elect Obama has been
apprised of this situation and receives daily updates as to which
rapper is next believed to contract the illness as such.
The Central
Intelligence Agency (CIA), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI),
the Secret Service, MI6, Scotland Yard, and Elmer Fudd are conducting
intelligence quotient (IO) tests on secretly on unsuspecting rappers,
as we speak, in order to compile and update their existing files of
low intelligence rappers.

Such a twist of fate that belies our 'mos def freestylin'
word-slangin' prophets. That there by the grace of God, he shall
speak. But, there by the grace of God, when he speaks with mouths
full of 'bling', his head will go BOOM !!!

My services are rendered to expose the truth regards the death of our
nations rappers. Word !!!

Spent the better part of my life living in the valley of the sun (Maricopa County/Phoenix/Scottsday/Mesa/Tempe/Arizona), and the camera not being timed to Arizona time makes sense. Arizona does not participate in 'Daylight savings time, and it was always a drag. Having to deal with businesses out of state whilst a couple hours left in the work day, only to realize anyone as far East as New Mexico and they've already gone home for the day. Cable TV? Computer Clock? Shipping ETAs'? Our own clocks were rarely correct. Just funny you have to try to explain why the times in the story don't add up. Now you know:)
