Son to D.C.’s infamous ‘Mayor for Life’ Marion Barry pleaded guilty Wednesday to assault charges stemming from a January outburst in which he threw a trash can at a teller in a downtown bank.
Despite already being on probation, Marion Christopher Barry was sentenced to 12 months of supervised probation and mandatory attendance of anger management classes, NBC4 Washington reported.
Barry was on probation for DUI and drug possession charges dating back to last year, which forced him in to another hearing Wednesday to face contempt of court charges. The judge in that case showed some leniency and let Barry avoid jail time for the next 30 days while he completes alcohol monitoring and counseling.
In January, Barry attempted to get $20,000 out of his bank account, which was already overdrawn by $2,000, but a teller told him he could not do that. Barry then lowered his request to $6,000, but the result was the same.
Barry then became irate, telling the bank teller, “I’m going to have someone waiting for you when you get off, you bitch.”
