Woman Driving Runaway Car High on Crack, May Work for Marion Barry

The woman charged with driving her car through Unifest in Southeast on Saturday afternoon was high on crack when it happened, and had been smoking crack all day prior to the crash. Furthering her Mother of the Year campaign, she brought her daughter along for the ride. Weirder still, she may have been a temporary employee of Councilmember Marion Barry:

D.C. Council member Marion Barry said his chief of staff is trying to determine whether Bell works as a temporary employee for Barry’s council office. Barry (D-Ward 8) said someone named Tonya Bell has worked in the office for several weeks. “Whether it is the same person or not, I am trying to check it out,” Barry said last night. “I’ve asked my chief of staff to try and find out if this Miss Bell is one of several administrative aides we use from temporary agencies.”

This whole thing gets weirder and weirder.
