WASHINGTON -- D.C. Council member and former mayor Marion Barry has racked up so many parking tickets that his car has been booted. reports that a boot was placed on Barry's Jaguar while it was parked on the street outside his Southeast Washington home.

Records show that Barry has nine unpaid parking tickets, with cumulative fines of $705. A notice on his vehicle said Barry would have to pay at least $520 worth of tickets to have the boot removed.

Barry says the booting is "no big thing" and that he will "pay whatever" is owed.
