Charles Barkley Recalls Wild Story Of His 1991 Arrest In Milwaukee


TNT’s Inside The NBA crew headed to Milwaukee this week for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals, as the Bucks defeated the Toronto Raptors by the final of 108-100. 

During Wednesday night’s edition of Inside The NBA, Charles Barkley answered some Milwaukee-related trivia questions, and recalled a crazy story of when he went to jail in Milwaukee back in 1991.

According to the Round Mound of Rebound, he was leaving a bar at around 2:30 am when he was approached by three “weightlifters.” Then, he took off his clothes and channelled his inner Karate Kid.

“I took all my clothes off because I had these three guys who were trying to beat me up,” Barkley said. “I wanted them to think I was crazy [because it was snowing]. I was improvising, I’m like the Marines.”

“This one guy kept standing right in front of me,” Barkley explained. “I said ‘wipe on, wipe off’ and two guys backed up. This one fool was standing right there and I hit his ass as hard as I could. I broke his nose. No shirt, no shoes, no problem.”
