One break is on inbound Suitland Parkway prior to Stanton Road and the right lane is closed to traffic while crews work to repair that main.

Congressional Ballgame As A Metaphor For Debt Talks

WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA) --- Television news producers at 9News Now, probably high on the salsa from the Mexican restaurant two blocks away from the newsroom, sent a crew to the annual congressional baseball game at National's Park Thursday evening, instructing it to find metaphors for the debt ceiling talks at the charity ballgame, that was won by Democrats, 8-2.

GOP shortstop Connie Mack IV, (R-Fla.), the great grandson of legendary baseball manager Connie Mack, stepped up to the metaphorical plate by saying of his family and its heritage, "They would disapprove if we weren't trying and that's the legacy of my great-grandfather. You get out there and you play to the best of your ability and you try to win. You never disrespect your opponent, but you do everything that you can to try to win."

He was asked about Republican strategy for the game.

Marion Barry's Son Arrested On PCP Charges

WASHINGTON (WUSA) --The son of council member and former DC mayor Marion Barry, Marion Christopher Barry, was arrested in connection to drug charges, according to charging documents released today.

Marion Christopher Barry was involved in some kind of domestic dispute when police showed up at his door on May 28th, the documents said.

Police could hear a loud dispute, with cursing and yelling coming from the inside of the house at 4337 Martin Luther King Jr. Ave, SW, DC.

When police knocked on the door, the arguing stopped and no one was responding to their requests to open the door. That's when the police called the fire department to gain access to the home, according to the documents.
