Contains language and images some may find objectionable.
Mayor Marion Barry, Washington, DC, has been charged with drug possession and lying to a grand jury. He has pleaded innocent to all charges. One of the possession charges stems from his arrest on January 18, 1990, at the Vista Hotel in Washington, DC. Prosecutors alleged that the mayor smoked crack cocaine with model Rasheeda Moore. This videotape, taken by a hidden camera at the hotel, was introduced on June 28, 1990, as evidence in the mayor’s trial.
