Charge: Aggravated battery and resisting arrest
Arrest Date: October 27, 1997
Franchise: Houston Rockets
Details: While enjoying drinks at an Orlando area bar with three women, Barkley became enraged when another patron threw a glass of ice at him. In one of the more famous NBA arrests, Barkley then chased the man to the front of the bar, lifted him up, and hurled him through a plate-glass window. As the man lay on the ground bleeding, Barkley then stood over him and told him ”you got what you deserve. You don’t respect me. I hope you’re hurt.”
