Charles Barkley is one of the NBA’s best players never to win a championship and is one of the game’s biggest personalities on and off the court. Always wearing his heart on his sleeve it doesn’t take much to get the outspoken Sir Charles riled up, and often throughout his career, it has landed him in trouble.
In an Orlando bar in 1997, Barkley found himself in an altercation where someone threw a drink over him. Charles promptly picked up the man, who was nearly a foot shorter and threw him through a pain glass window. Barkley showed little remorse. When police showed up Barkley told the man who was bleeding on the ground ''For all I care, you can lay there and die.’’At the trial, the judge asked if Barkley had any regrets, where he replied, “Yeah I regret we were on the first floor.” Classic Charles.
’'He lifted that kid up and flung him like he was a toy and threw him into the window,'' said Jerry Colon, a witness. ''He broke the whole glass.’' Charles was jailed for five hours before being released on a $6,000 bond.
