(Newser) – In the wake of his DUI arrest—during which he told a cop he was in a hurry to get oral sex—Charles Barkley has lost another job, Advertising Age reports. T-Mobile has pulled spots featuring Barkley “for the time being,” a rep said, adding, "As he works through his personal matters, we will evaluate where to go from here." Barkley is already on leave from his TNT analyst gig in the wake of his New Year's Eve arrest.
