Barkley Offers Apology, Advice In TNT Return

Feb. 19, 2009: According to Barkley, who spoke with TNT partner Ernie Johnson, he doesn't think his case will go to trial and that he plans to seek alcohol counseling. "I think it's going to be good for me, to be honest," he told Johnson. "I need to make sure drinking is not a problem for me. I just want some professionals to talk to me about it." Barkley went on to say, "This is just my bad, no excuses, it was unacceptable. I think that a DUI is unacceptable. That can't happen and I've got to challenge other people, not just celebrities or jocks. You have to really think before getting behind the wheel after you've been drinking." Regarding the fact that his arrest made national news, Barkley said, "I think every person who is in the limelight has to be extraordinarily careful in public. With video cameras, camera phones and the Internet, it's become "gotcha" journalism. Most of the time that I'm on the Internet, I'm not doing anything. Clearly people are standing away from me and taking pictures. You really have to be careful in public right now." Moving forward, Barkley offered this advice: "I am certainly going to use better judgment. I'm not going to drive a car after I've been drinking. I'm going to get a driver anytime I go out in public. And I'm going to challenge all NBA players and hopefully all jocks across the board. When we go out, we really have to think before getting behind the wheel."
