Christopher Barry, Son of “Mayor for Life,” to Turn Himself in Over Outburst at Bank

The son of the late Marion Barry is expected to turn himself Wednesday to face charges stemming from an angry outburst at a local bank.

Marion Christopher Barry, who is a candidate in the special election to fill his father's unexpired term, faces misdemeanor charges of making a threat and destruction of property, according to lawyers handling the issue for Barry.

Last week, Christopher Barry cursed a PNC bank teller on 7th Street downtown during a dispute over his account and said he would "have somebody waiting for you when you get off work," according to a police report.

The police report said Barry threw a trash can over the security glass, destroying a security camera valued at $1,000. The incident was captured on security cameras.

Lawyers said Monday Barry was expected to turn himself in Tuesday or Wednesday.
