Christopher Barry, the adult son of Marion Barry, the D.C. Council member and former mayor, was taken into custody last night after a scuffle at an apartment house in Northwest Washington, D.C. police said.
Christopher Barry, who was listed as 24 years old early this year, was picked up by police about 10 p.m. in an apartment house in the 700 block of Fourth Street NW.
Police sources said officers were called to the four-story apartment house for a noise complaint.
Sources said Christopher Barry was taken to a hospital for treatment of possible minor injuries.
As of 12:15 this morning, he had not been formally charged.
The former mayor could not be reached last night by telephone. The mayor's wife, Cora Masters Barry, said she had no details about the report. Christopher Barry's mother, Effi Barry, could not be reached immediately.
When Marion Barry campaigned last year to win the Ward 8 council seat, Christopher Barry was described as a student at the University of the District of Columbia. Earlier, he had attended Woodrow Wilson High School.
At a celebration of Marion Barry's victory in the Democratic primary, Christopher introduced him as "our coach, our professor, our general and our councilman."
