From Washington Post

D.C. Council member Marion Barry was taken into custody last night by the U.S. Park Police, a police official said.
“It’s my understanding that he was taken into custody,” Park Police Chief Sal Lauro said in a brief interview. Lauro said he believed that Barry ( D-Ward 8 ) was picked up in the Anacostia Park area.

Lauro said he did not have details of the incident and could not say whether Barry had been arrested.

He referred calls to the Park Police spokesman, who he said was collecting details about the matter. When reached late last night, the spokesman asked for more time to explain what occurred.

WRC (Channel 4) broadcast a report last night saying that the matter possibly involved domestic harassment or stalking. The report was based on unnamed police sources.

Cocaine is a helluva drug

This reminds me of my favorite Barry Quote.

“If it weren’t for the killings, Washington would have one of the lowest crime rates in the country.”
