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.
