Barkley under investigation for indecent assault

August 30, 2004

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Former NBA star Charles Barkley is under investigation for indecent assault, police said Monday.

A woman reported she was assaulted by Barkley at the nightclub 32 Degrees, Cpl. Jim Pauley said.

``We want to stress that no charges have been filed,'' Pauley said. ``This incident is under investigation.''

Police received the report at 1:20 a.m. Friday, Pauley said. The investigation is being conducted by the department's Special Victims Unit, and police did not release any details of the allegation.

Attempts by The Associated Press to reach Barkley, now a basketball analyst, or his agent were unsuccessful Monday night.

Barkley was a nine-time All-Star and the league's MVP in 1993. He has been an analyst with cable network TNT since his retirement in 2000.

I think he's just trying to transition into a career in politics.

The round mound of rebound has a good defense. He's so fat he couldn't help but rub up against her.

Obviously Barkley is in training to come back as an NBA star.

Woman who accused Barkley of groping her withdraws complaint

September 2, 2004

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- The woman who accused Charles Barkley of groping her at a nightclub withdrew her police complaint.

``It's a noncase. It's over with,'' her lawyer, A. Charles Peruto Jr., said Thursday, adding ``everyone is under agreement that this was just a big misunderstanding.''

The woman had told police the former NBA star inappropriately touched her breast last week in a crowded nightclub. Police were investigating and the woman hired Peruto, but then she had second thoughts about pursuing the matter. Philadelphia police would not comment on the case.

On Wednesday, Peruto said she was willing to drop any complaints, civil or criminal, as long as Barkley apologized. Peruto declined to say Thursday whether that happened, but said both sides were satisfied the issue was resolved. No money changed hands, he said.

``She's had time to reflect, and we just want to close this chapter,'' he said, adding he believed Barkley didn't intend to treat the woman disrespectfully. ``I've known him for 20 years, and to be honest with you, I've always found him to be an honorable guy.''

Barkley, who played for the 76ers, was a nine-time All-Star and the league's MVP in 1993. He has been an analyst with cable network TNT since his retirement in 2000.

Just how much incidental inappropriate touching goes on in nightclubs? If it's a busy nightclub, it happens numerous times every hour.

Next, Sir Charles will file a counter-claim contending that the woman fondled HIS ample bosom.
