Charles Barkley on DUI: ‘I just wanted a BJ’

The Superficial / January 2, 2009

Good news, everybody, Charles Barkley’s DUI arrest was for a worthy cause. He wanted to get some head. Finally, a drunk driving story with a happy ending. Well, almost a happy ending. The Smoking Gun reports:

Charles Barkley told Arizona cops that he ran a stop sign because he was in a hurry to pick up a girl who had “given him a ‘blow job’ one week earlier,” which the former NBA star described as “the best one he had ever had in his life.” According to a Gilbert Police Department report, a copy of which you’ll find here, police asked Barkley where he was going at the time of the 1:26 AM traffic stop in Scottsdale. “You want the truth? I was gonna drive around the corner and get a blow job,” answered Barkley.

A cooperative Barkley also joked with a civilian police employee that, “I’ll tattoo your name on my ass” if it would get him out of the DUI charge.

Oh, thank God. For a minute there I thought Charles Barkley was risking people’s lives for something retarded like KFC or SportsCenter on TiVo. But a BJ? Who’s gonna fault him for that? “You see, son, Charles Barkley was with a woman whose mouth could take the paint off a golf ball. I’m telling you this so you know your father didn’t die in vain, and also, because I’m a terrible police officer. Which is why I shot your cat on the way in. Now, what kind of perfume does your mom like?”
