Officer Baricza has been seen drawing a weapon to protect himself three times. The first was when he encountered a group of men running a casino in a motor home and held the shotgun from his patrol car. He drew his weapon next in "Peaks and Valleys". Finally, he pulled his service revolver after being beaten and knocked to the ground by a minor who knew karate and was threatening him with a weapon.
For a short time, Barry quit the CHP to work as a crop duster for his father. He's a pilot and flight instructor. His father (who is also a crop duster) taught him how to fly.
He was injured in a hit and run which killed Officer Steve Wydemeyer.
As of 1999, Baricza is still with the CHP.
The three times Baricza draws a gun are the only three times any officer draws his weapon in the entire series.
