Good 'Ole Marion Barry. This guy is actually a councilman in DC? Even after his Cocaine arrests? What is wrong with these people that vote for people like him?

FOX 5 has learned more about Marion Barry's driving record since it was put into the spotlight after an accident over the weekend.

It appears the former mayor and current council member owes the city quite a sum in parking violations.

After the accident, Barry admitted he went the wrong way on Pennsylvania Avenue.

He says the crash was the result of a diabetic attack and his low blood sugar made him disoriented. 

At the time, Barry was cited by D.C. Police for driving on the wrong side of the street and for operating an unregistered vehicle without proof of insurance.

However, it seems Barry's troubles are deeper than that. The Washington Post reports that it looked into Barry's records on the D.C. DMV website.

It showed that Barry has racked up 21 parking tickets in the past two years.

Those tickets add up to $2,824 in fines. The Post asked the Department of Public Works why Barry's car has never been booted or towed since regulations call for that action after two or more unpaid tickets more than 60 days old.

A spokesperson for the DPW told the Post that the tickets on Barry's car were written in the overnight hours when boot crews are not on duty.

Meantime, the former mayor is sounding off on D.C. Police.

He accused them on Twitter of tipping the media off about Saturday night's accident so that news crews would come to get video of his car.

Barry did spend one night in the hospital but is otherwise okay.

D.C. Councilmember Marion Barry

WASHINGTON (AP) — Former District of Columbia mayor Marion Barry has paid his outstanding traffic tickets after accumulating more than $2,800 in fines over the past two and a half years.

The website of the District's Department of Motor Vehicles showed that Barry's 2002 Jaguar had a balance of $0 on Tuesday afternoon. DMV official Lucinda Babers says Barry paid $1,779 and $1,045 was reduced through adjudication.

The 78-year-old Barry is a D.C. councilmember, a position that comes with some parking privileges. He was involved in a minor traffic accident on Saturday. He was cited for lack of registration and proof of insurance. A spokeswoman for Barry said he suffered a hypoglycemic attack before the crash.

Barry's recent traffic tickets included five citations for speeding and one for running a red light.
