Well, we hope he will be okay. But geez, given his history, what’s up with driving the wrong way on a one way street? High or drunk unfortunately are good guesses.

One-way streets are racist. Just another tool of the white man to keep the brothas down.

lol I read that as “Comedian” not “Councilman” and then realized that was much more accurate.

Runs in the family.

D.C. Councilman Marion Barry’s son was arrested in August 2013 for driving under the influence and drug possession in Hampton, Va. .. In 2011, he was given a nine-month suspended sentence after he pleaded guilty to possession of PCP and marijuana.

Maybe he was sober and not being accustomed it affected his senses.

Barry was probably so numb from crack that he didn’t feel a thing.

So, then, it was the other driver’s fault, of course.
