Marion Barry’s son wants to follow in his footsteps – but he’s not choosing the right ways to do it. Washington D.C. police say Marion Christopher Barry, who is running for his father’s Ward 8 D.C. Council seat, is a suspect in a bank vandalism in D.C.’s Chinatown earlier this week.
Marion Christopher Barry, son of the late former D.C. mayor, threatened a teller and destroyed a surveillance camera at a Chinatown bank branch Tuesday, according to police.
Barry did not respond to telephone calls made Tuesday and Wednesday. Frederick D. Cooke Jr., a lawyer who has previously represented both Barrys, said Wednesday that he was not aware of the incident and had not been contacted by Barry or the police about it.
A message left for Barry’s campaign manager, John Rodriguez, was not returned Wednesday.
