Barkley Pleads Guilty In Scottsdale To Dui Charges

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) -- Charles Barkley has pleaded guilty in a Scottsdale court to charges of driving drunk and will face jail time.

According to Scottsdale court records, the 45-year-old former NBA star pleaded guilty Monday to two misdemeanor charges related to the same drunken driving arrest.

The NBA television commentator and basketball Hall of Famer is set to begin a five-day jail sentence on March 21. He must pay more than $2,000 in fines and attend an alcohol treatment program. Under Arizona law, he'll also be forced to install an ignition interlock device on his vehicles.

Barkley was stopped by police Dec. 31 shortly after leaving a Scottsdale nightclub. He was arrested after failing a field sobriety test.
