The Time Charles Barkley Got Arrested In Milwaukee

MILWAUKEE, WI — The Milwaukee Bucks defeated the Toronto Raptors 108-100 on Wednesday night to take a 1-0 lead in the 2019 NBA Eastern Conference Finals.

Following the game, TNT hosted their Inside the NBA post-game show out in the courtyard in front of the Fiserv Forum. As throngs of Bucks fans lingered in jubilation following the home team’s win, TNT host Ernie Johnson subjected co-host Charles Barkley in a round of Milwaukee trivia.

As it turned out, the Johnson’s trivia turned out to be a cover for the final question, “when and where was this?” The screens outside the forum flashed a 10-foot high arrest mugshot of Barkley from a 1991 incident.

Barkley, unfazed, let out a sizable laugh and stated, “that’s where I did my ‘Karate Kid’ impression. I took all my clothes off because I had these three guys that were trying to beat me up. I wanted them to think I was crazy.”
