Charles Barkley had booze in his blood on the night he was busted for DUI, this according to the cops who nailed the basketball star last month.
Cops say Barkley's blood alcohol level was .149 -- nearly twice the legal limit in Arizona.
The BAC number came from a blood test taken in the field, when Barkley refused the Breathalyzer.
He's due back in court January 20.
