Marion Barry asks followers to disregard tweet critical of DC Police Dept
As Twitchy reported, D.C. Council member Marion Barry was hospitalized Saturday night after a crash that occurred when he drove the wrong way down Pennsylvania Avenue, a move the former mayor blamed on a hypoglycemic attack. Police cited Barry with driving an unregistered vehicle and failing to show proof of insurance.
On Monday, Barry was tweeting again, according to a report by the Washington Post:
On Monday morning, Barry directed a critical tweet at the D.C. police: “So instead of protecting people, I’m advised that @DCPoliceDept called news media to come film my hypoglycemic attack & accident? Sad.”
The tweet was deleted from Barry’s account by Monday afternoon.
Not only was the tweet deleted; Barry called it “unauthorized” and urged followers to ignore it.
