Police: Marion Barry’s son had PCP, large amount of marijuana

The son of former District of Columbia mayor and current Councilmember Marion Barry is facing a drug-dealing charge after police say they found PCP and marijuana in his apartment.

Court records show 31-year-old Marion Christopher Barry was arrested in May after police responded to a report of a fight. Officers found a vial of PCP containing what the documents describe as more than would be used by one person. Police also found five sandwich bags nearly full of marijuana.

The documents show Barry jumped out of a window to avoid police but later returned to the apartment and was arrested. He faces a single charge of possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance.

The elder Marion Barry declined to comment, as did his son’s attorney, Fred Cooke.
