Marion Barry’s Son Suspected of Drug Dealing
Does the apple fall from the tree? In the Barry family, no. News broke today that Marion Barry’s 31-year-old son was arrested on drug charges. Large amounts of PCP and marijuana, along with small bags, were found in Marion Christopher Barry’s apartment. Now, he faces a single charge of possession with intent to distribute.
The elder Marion Barry is haunted by his image of the “crack mayor.” During his third term as mayor of DC, Barry was caught on videotape smoking crack cocaine. That didn’t stop his political career however. He won a fourth term in 1994 and is a current Councilmember of the 8th ward.
