Cops: Barkley Was a Slam Drunk

1/9/2009 2:42 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

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.

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
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 !!!

In Arizona for a first time DUI offense the common folks are required to do mandatory jail time, It will be fascinating to see how Barkley gets out of his "Mandatory" jail time sentence. Now if he would have kept is mouth shut, claimed his soverenignty, his 4th and 5th Amendment rights, refused every request by the public servant he my have had his case dismissed. I always claim my sovereignty, and my 4th and 5th Amendment rights during traffic stops, my cases are dismissed. The Government hates this, but it's our sovereignty that is at stake here.

you have to remember that the police "Public Servants" are constantly against us"the private citizens". A public servant is an instrument used against a private citizen by a "Government' designed to take our freedoms away and separate us from our money based on "Legal Fiction" fantasy Land Make Believe in regards to traffic bylaws and statutes.

Have you ever been stopped for speeding? And you knew you were not speeding? That's the very fraudulent act of a Public Servant using make believe fantasy to "create" revenue off of private citizens.

In Barkleys case, he rolled through a stop making a right hand turn, the limo driver also rolled through the stop... nobody was harmed, or hurt. So it's all make believe.

Barkley did not remain silent, and everything he said and did is being used against him in a court of law.

Good for him. He has an over inflated ego, I know because I have met him. Maybe he will experience Sheriff Joe's pink boxer in Maricopa County Jail!

Field blood test? huh? the cops now can take your blood while eating donuts and getting their sugar high? Are U f_ing kidding me? Are they gun wielding nurses on top of it all? Is there some kind of blood analyzer adapter that fits on the end of their stun gun to perform this field blood test? What the hell is claiming your "sovereignty"? I need to know more about this seemingly useful tool. Speaking of donuts...I think we need to put laws into effect that require police cars to be equipped with breath-alyzers that measure glucose levels, too high..shut down the squad and all onboard electronics, locks the trunk and the gun mounts too. And I'm wondering if the slaying of one young man by a BART cop this past New Years, was the result of the cop's glucose level being too high. There is already a cover up, saying he(the BART police officer) thought it was his stun gun that he was shooting the boy with. hahaha..yea right. Too bad the bullet didn't ricochet and get get one of the cops in the brain holding down the boy at the time. Well you can see I am not a fan of stupid bully cops, and the corrupt Brotherhood that they are in concert with. BART cops should only be alllowed whistles and handcuffs. No guns, no batons!

In this case,his celebrity status should be thrown out. He needs to be treated as a private citizen. Lock him up for 30 days with no suspended time, make him pay a large fine, take away his license for a year, make him go through those classes, etc. He should not be provided any favoritism over his celeb status. If anything, since he is a public figure and in some cases, a "role model", he should have a harsher penalty. I agree with Laura. He is just an egotistical jacka$$. He lost any rights he has when he knowingly climbed into a vehicle as intoxicated as he was.
