Police: Christopher Barry threatened bank teller

WASHINGTON — Marion Barry’s son Christopher may be facing new legal trouble.

NBC4 reports Christopher Barry is accused of threatening a bank teller Tuesday Jan. 14  after she told him his account was overdrawn and he couldn’t take out any money.

Police say it happened at the PNC Bank on 7th Street Northwest, in Chinatown.

According to NBC4 Barry destroyed a surveillance camera by hurling a trash can over security glass after saying “I’m going to have someone waiting for you when you get off.”

The comment was followed by an expletive.

The 34-year-old is running for his father’s Ward 8 council seat.

In the past Christopher Barry has admitted to marijuana possession and in 2013 he was charged with DUI.
