Recidivist Marion Barry Arrested Again

It's racist! It's profiling! It's a grown man never accountable for himself! Former Washington, DC Mayor Marion Barry is at it again. Naturally, it's not his fault.
WASHINGTON -- Marion Barry said that he is talking to his lawyers and thinking about suing the D.C. government and the U.S. Park Police after he was stopped, arrested and then released this past Saturday.

Barry said that he was driving to a holiday party around 4:30 p.m. Saturday when U.S. Park Police officers, who said that he was driving too slowly, stopped him.

Barry said the officers asked him for his license and registration and then said that his license was suspended.

Barry told NBC4 the suspension was a clerical mistake, and he accused the U.S. Park police of racial profiling.

Park Police said Barry's license was in fact suspended, and that's why he was arrested.

This buffoon has been out of control for years. This is no isolated incicent. Since 2005, we have this sampling stories:
