In the aftermath of Charles Barkley’s arrest on suspicion of drunk driving early on New Years Eve morning in Scottsdale, Ariz., TNT is remaining quiet. Barkley is the outspoken and usually praised star of TNT’s popular studio show ‘Inside the NBA.’

TNT released a statement saying: ‘We take these matters very seriously. Obviously there’s a legal process and we have to wait for that to play out so we won’t have any comment at this time.’

The show doesn’t return to the air until Jan. 15. One suspects more will be said by TNT and Barkley before then. Barkley has already apologized for the incident.
