Charles Barkley -- Pretty in Pink

2/24/2009 3:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Charles BarkleyHave you ever wanted to see a 300+ pound guy dressed in pink long johns? Charles Barkley is about to grant your wish.

We got word Barkley will serve his time in Lower Buckeye Jail ... which happens to be run by Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Arpaio tells TMZ that if he does get his hands on Barkley, he will put him in Tent City -- which means Sir Charles will don the infamous pink long johns.

Arpaio even told TMZ he would pair Barkley up with another famous Tent City inmate -- DMX.

Barkley is due to turn himself in on March 21.

UPDATE -- Sheriff Arpaio tells TMZ Barkley has been given work release -- meaning he only has to be in jail from 8:00 PM to 6:00 AM. But if Chuck violates even one rule, Arpaio will revoke his work release.

Arpaio is a piece of garbage. He is a hypocrite who is involved in criminal activity himself, Also, he treats those awaiting trial, who haven't been convicted of anything, the same as those who have been convicted.

Put toofastforyou in the pink uniforms!

Arpaio for President 2012 !!! He is a real American standing up for America and putting illegals and criminals where they belong. Too bad he couldnt get his hooks into Boy George. Then again Boy George would probably like being chains and pink clothes.

TMZ you have this all wrong. No matter where he goes he will be in black and white striped scrubs. The boxers they issue him will be pink. Stick to harassing mothers of 14!

Do your homework, TMZ, he wont even be wearing stripes or pink underwear. For minor crimes like DUI, tent city inmates get work release and can wear their own clothes, with a few regulations. Youd think if you shell out 70k for a picture you could pay your staff some more to get the stories right.

See, I told you. :))

All kidding aside, something tells me Charles probably could care less about the color of his britches. Of course I don't know him but just seems the type to take it in stride. I have been wrong in the past, though (once).

PS.. Meant porcelain plates yesterday (as in: not license).
