Former Washington D.C. mayor and current councilman Marion Barry was arrested Saturday night.

The charges aren’t clear at the time of writing, but it’s believed that Barry may have been charged with stalking. Of who though we don’t know.

According to reports, Barry was interviewed at the United States Park Police Criminal Investigation’s Branch and released on citation with a mandatory court appearance in the Superior Court for the District of Columbia.

Barry was arrested on drugs charges in 1990 while servicing as Mayor. After serving a 6 month sentence, Barry was reelected to council in 1992 and served as Mayor again from 1995-1999.
