Barkley arrested on DUI suspicion

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Former Auburn standout Charles Barkley has been arrested on suspicion of drinking and driving.

Gilbert police Lt. Eric Shuhandler says an officer with a task force that targets drunken drivers saw the former NBA star run a stop sign around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday morning in Scottsdale.

Shuhandler says Barkley declined to submit to a breath test but was given a blood test.

The results have not come in.

After Barkley was processed, he was cited and released.

Shuhandler says Barkley left the scene in a cab.

Barkley, a Leeds native, played 16 NBA seasons for the Philadelphia 76ers, Phoenix Suns and Houston Rockets, and played on the USA Olympic "Dream Team" in 1992 and 1996.

He was an 11-time NBA All-Star and league MVP in 1993.
