NIGHT OWL MARION BARRY IN TRAFFIC ACCIDENT, reports the WaPo. Barry (D-Ward 8) pulled his car out of a parking space into the path of an oncoming vehicle shortly after midnight this morning, police said.

The reporting officer checked off a box on the report asking whether the at-fault driver appeared to be impaired. But police did not charge Barry with driving under the influence, and they allowed him to drive his car from the accident scene. Police were not immediately available to explain the discrepancy. It is possible that Barry underwent a sobriety test, and passed.

Hmmm. Barry is one of those unfortunate souls, like Kieth Richards, who always seems to be under the influence of something.
