CLOVIS (KSMX)- A man who was pulled over and arrested for driving drunk got in even more trouble after he made the arresting officer a special offer.

KRQE TV reports, in late August, a State Police officer pulled over a car in Clovis for expired registration; but the officer noticed something was up with the, 52-year-old Jesus Uribe.

After telling the officer that the reason for his red eyes was the because he worked overnights, the officer believed there was proof he’d been drinking.

Two different officers tried to get Uribe to do field sobriety tests, but he claimed he couldn’t understand them. So, a bilingual officer showed up to help. The officer arrested Uribe, and in the car to the hospital, Uribe offered the officer a bribe of $500.

After denying the request several times, the officer wrote in his report that Uribe tried to up the ante and made a final offer for a $1,000.

Uribe was charged with DWI and trying to bribe an officer.
