Charles Barkley Goes to Jail

Back when he was an NBA star, Charles Barkley famously told fans he was "not a role model." Ironically, the man he specifically cited instead as a "role model for all Americans," Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona, is now overseeing the former basketball genius' three-day stint in prison for drunk driving. Barkley's praise for Arpaio made it onto the book jacket of the sheriff's 1996 tome America's Toughest Sheriff. Barkley currently works as a basketball commentator for TNT, where his reputation for outrageous and unpredictable behavior has given him a popular second career. He has taken a leave of absence from work since being arrested on New Year's Eve.
