Accused Killer Barry Long No Stranger to CMPD Officers, Pot, Booze or Trouble
Barry Dean Long has had a hell of a year. He was arrested in February and then again in April, his rapid downward spiral was fueled by drugs, pot and booze. It all came to a crashing halt Wednesday night during a gun fight with a co-worker who was trying to leave a party.
Witnesses report that the two men had an ongoing feud and often threatened each other. Conflicting reports have emerged regarding William Twitty the deceased. One report says Twitty went to his car to get his gun and Long shot him at point blank range.
Long was arrested in February and charged with having a fake license plate, failure to comply with driving restrictions, open container and possion of marijuana. In April he was again arrested and charged with many of the same offenses.
Last night Long was charged with Murder.
