T-Mobile Pulls Commercials Starring Charles Barkley

T-Mobile is putting its commercials starring former NBA star Charles Barkley off the air in light of his recent DUI bust.

"Given the recent developments, for the time being, we've replaced TV ads featuring Mr. Barkley with more general-market advertising. As he works through his personal matters, we will evaluate where to go from here," a spokesman for the company tells the 'New York Post'.

The move comes less than a week after Barkley took a leave absence from TNT after he was arrested on drunk driving charges in Scottsdale, Arizona. Barkley was initially pulled over for running a stop sign on December 31, 2008, but failed a field sobriety test after officers smelled alcohol on his breath.

Test results released by police showed that Barkley had a blood-alcohol level of .149, nearly twice the legal limit of .08 in Arizona.

And in true Barkley fashion, according to the police report, Barkley told police he ran through the stop sign because he was in a hurry to receive oral sex from his female passenger.

Here's a blooper reel from Charles Barkley's commercial with Dwayne Wade:
