Marion Barry’s Son Goes To Jail

As they say, the apple doesn’t fall from the tree.

D.C. Councilman Marion Barry‘s son is in jail after a latest arrest, reports the AP.

Christopher Barry, 34, was caught driving on a revoked licensed. Before this latest arrest, he was arrested in May for driving under the influence of drugs as well as driving with a revoked license. In 2013 he was arrested for possession of marijuana — which now carries just a $25 fine. And in 2011, he was arrested for possession of PCP. He’s the son of the ex-mayor who also served time in jail for smoking crack cocaine. The¬†WCP indicates that¬†Barry, 78, had high (no pun intended) hopes that his son might one day replace him on the Council.

According to the AP report, the younger Barry faces a hearing on Aug. 7.

He’ll remain in jail until that time.
