Court records show Marion Barry's son to plead guilty to misdemeanor charges in bank outburst

The son of former District of Columbia Mayor Marion Barry has agreed to plead guilty to misdemeanor charges stemming from his outburst at a downtown Washington bank.

Marion Christopher Barry was accused of threatening a teller and throwing a metal trash can in January, destroying a security camera. Police said Barry became angry after being told his account was overdrawn.

The charges appeared to hinder the 34-year-old's campaign for his late father's seat on the D.C. Council. The younger Barry raised little money and finished sixth out of 13 candidates in a special election last month. He has said he plans to run again.

Court records show Barry intends to plead guilty at a hearing on Wednesday, which had been his trial date.

The elder Barry died last November.
