Marion Barry’s Son Charged With Intent to Distribute PCP

Marion Christopher Barry, the adult son of Ward 8 D.C. Councilmember Marion Barry, has been charged with possession with intent to distribute PCP, court records show.

The younger Barry was arrested on May 28, according to a statement filed by police at Superior Court, after officers reported finding five sandwich bags "almost full" of marijuana and a vial of PCP that contained "sufficiently more than than used for personal use."

Barry, 31, is being charged with a felony drug charge. He's being represented by Fred Cooke Jr., who did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Through a spokeswoman, Marion Barry also declined to comment.

In the  court documents, police say they arrived at the younger Barry's apartment on Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue SW after being alerted to what sounded like a fight. When a police officer knocked on the door, a man answered but would not open the door, court records say. Police then called the fire department to have the door opened. Once inside the apartment, the officers saw blood on the floor and drugs in "plain sight," according to court records.

Court documents say that Barry fled the apartment by jumping out a window, but later returned and sought medical treatment for a bloody foot. He was arrested at the scene, court records say.

The court records also indicate that Barry and prosecutors are working on a plea deal.

The younger Barry was previously charged with assaulting a police officer in 2005. Court records indicate the charges from that incident were dismissed.

Here's the complaint:

    @SEDCdude: Just because I am articulate and well educated does not mean that I am white. Not all black people speak or write in ebonics. Using your reasoning, MKL must not have been black; or President Obama must not be black because they both certainly wrote and spoke (MLK), write and speak (Pres. Obama), as whites, not as an educated black people.

  • seDCdude

    Has ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with your VERBIAGE but more to do with the substance!

    I stand by my post.......OBAMMA would also be looked upon by me because he too thinks WHITE!

    Sycophants, appeassists, LIBERALS and POLITICAL "CORRECTORS" run together....again...I'm just saying'!

  • seDCdude

    A REAL "brotha" would have bailed out the PEOPLE....not GOLDMAN SACHS!

  • seDCdude

    side note though.....who told YOU that you were articulate???????

  • Isn’t It Obvious

    @SEDCdude: I get what you are saying. I too, as a black person, do not, regularly I might add, agree with some of Pres. Obama's politics. However, at no time do I question whether he is a black man. I just don't appreciate @SE Ken questioning my blackness.

    Now, don't get it twisted, I can, if I have, become the original bobblehead doll (you know how we black women shake our heads when we get angry). So believe me, when I was writing my response to @SE Ken questioning my blackness, my mind was sayiing "Oh no he didn't" but I did not want to stoop to his ignorant level and respond in that manner. Otherwise, I would have lost my credibility in asking for civility in not using disrespectful terms. You feel me?

  • Isn’t It Obvious

    @SEDCdude: more people than I can list have told me that I am articulate. Thanks for asking. ;-)

  • seDCdude

    BUT asking for civility when civility isn't necessary isn't too credulous to begin with...I'm just saying!

    If you haven't noticed, the gloves are off!

  • seDCdude

    "IS" rather credulous

  • Isn’t It Obvious

    @SEDCdude: It is a waste of my time to continue conversing with you. I am sure in your myopic little brain you think that you are making rationale arguements; if only it were true. If I have learned nothing in my life is that ignorance is universal. It transcends race, creed, color, gender, and sexuality. There is no profit in arguing with a fool. As the saying goes, "be careful when arguing with fools, people walking by can't tell who is the fool and who is not." Obvously, I am not calling myself a fool; so therefore. . ."I'm just saying!" Keep the gloves on and give yourself a profilactic. Have a good evening.

    IT'S APPARENTLY OBVIOUS, pun intended....


    Go have a latte' and some truffles you clown!

    LOL@seDCdude; continue to put that 'cow' in her place.

  • Southeast Ken

    Isn't It Obvious, a mulatto is a person with one black and white parent. Depending on the genetics, some mulattos are born Caucasian and can or have passed for white in America.

    On another issue, what would you say to a white person that called a black gay male the F word? Would you remind the white person of the N Word? Being gay isn't a race, idiot. Gay people can be black, white, Muslim, Catholic, holy roller, Puerto Rican, Dominican, Cuban, Mexican, Middle Easterner, Jewish, etc. I am tired of other comparing racism or discrimination to the N word. A recent commercial on television is telling people not to use the word retarded because it's offenseive like the use of N, S, Chic, words.

    Where will the political correctness end? I don't care if someone calls or refers to me as the N Word. I hear black, white, and Hispanic young people using the N word daily.

    On the issue of the word retard, you are one retarded individual, Isn't It Obvious.

  • Southeast Ken

    Correction: some mulattos are born looking Caucasian and can or have passed for white in America. There are members in my family who looked white, left D.C. and the South and moved elsewhere and passed for white during Jim Crowism in this country.

    Just a question to the LL blogosphere: Are @Se Ken and seDCdude the only intelligent voices residing in SE? I sure hope not. If so, God help SE.

    @SE Ken, if I'm a cow, what does that make your wife and your mother? What a massive fudge cluster you are @ SE Ken. Schmuck!

    @seDCdud: Oops, I mean seDCdude. pun intended. How'd that profilactic work out for you? Prick!

    Offensive and direspectful words seem to be all the two of you moron know how to use: "N" word, "F" word, and now the word "Retarded." Grow up. Get an education! Get a better vocabulary!

    @DC Native, I gotta change my user name because I don't want to be confused with you!

    In ref. to Barry's son growing up with a positive role model, he did and her name was Effie Barry, who died of cancer when Chris Barry was young man.

    Drug and alcohol abuse are at epidemic levels in the country and if you don't know, talk to Nancy Reagan and W. Bush, their children were caught-up in the same shit as Chris Barry.

    Give the kid a break, he is not Marion Barry!
