WASHINGTON — 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, 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 Barry’s campaign for his late father’s seat on the D.C. Council. Barry raised little money and finished sixth in a field 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.
