WASHINGTON (AP) — The only son of former District of Columbia mayor Marion Barry has been jailed after he was caught driving on a revoked license.

Thirty-four-year-old Christopher Barry has had several recent brushes with the law, including an arrest in May near the White House for driving under the influence of drugs. His license had already been revoked, and he was ordered not to drive until further notice. Court documents show he was caught driving again on Wednesday and arrested. The documents show he was also in possession of synthetic marijuana.

On Thursday, D.C. Superior Court Judge Karen Howze ordered Christopher Barry jailed until a hearing on Aug. 7.

Marion Barry struggled with addiction while serving as mayor and served six months in prison after he was videotaped smoking crack cocaine.
