Former NBA star Charles Barkley was arrested in Arizona on suspicion of drinking and driving after running a stop sign at around 1:30 this morning, according to police. Barkley declined to submit to a breath test, but was given a blood test. The results weren't immediately available. After Barkley was processed, he was cited and released.
"There was nothing unusual about how he was taken into custody," said a police lieutenant. "He was treated exactly like we treat anybody else." Barkley was arrested in Scottsdale's Old Town area, one of the trendiest spots in the Phoenix metro area. (Read more Charles Barkley stories.)
