Barkley arrested

NBA great Charles Barkley is taking a leave of absence from the broadcast booth.

The announcement by Turner Sports came on Friday, hours after police said the 45-year-old Hall of Famer was legally drunk when he was arrested on December 31 on suspicion of drunken driving in Scottsdale, Arizona. Test results show Barkley had a blood-alcohol level at .149 percent, nearly twice the legal limit of .08 in Arizona. Barkley will be off the air for a minimum of several weeks, and no return date has been set.
