Barkley's Only Jail Complaint? The Food!

3/10/2009 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Charles BarkleyJudging by his size, one might think Charles Barkley would eat anything -- and everything -- put in front of him. Not true.

We're told Chuck had a serious problem with the food he was served during his short stint in an Arizona jail. Charles was given sloppy joes, potatoes, pear chunks, zucchini, a bread roll and a slice of margarine.

His reaction: "Man ... this stuff tastes like sh*t."

Chuck's special tent, separate from the other inmates, did not come with access to the vending machines with junk food and candy. So his lawyers were allowed to bring him some junk food and candy from the outside.

You can lock up the man ... but not his sweet tooth.
