|He blew a .268 and they are charging him with bribery? You got the guy on DUI, let it go at that. |
I've heard drunks violently threaten to kill officers all the time when they are that wasted, but no charges are filed for intimidation. This seems like the officers were put out in dealing with a drunk and decided to tack on another felony. If he did it after sobering up then that's another thing, but a guy that drunk probably doesn't even remember offering it today.

|Agree 100% abathar. A class A misdemeanor for being so drunk that he fell asleep at the wheel of a 2,000 pound car and they had to break the windows to get in, but a C felony for drunkenly trying to bribe a cop. Crazy. Seems like the charges are backwards to me.|

|Prosecuting Attorney questioning his expert Dr. Jones on the stand. |
Prosecutors medical experts -Doctor Jones:
Dr Jones, "what was the defendants blood alcohol level when he arrived at your facility ?" - "it was .268 when we tested it, he was unable to walk and kept mumbling nonsense " Dr Jones answered.
Prosecutor : "In your expert opinion would you say in his state he could be responsible enough to navigate a motor vehicle ?" - Dr Jones answers, "No sir, in his state he probably didn't even know his first name. He had so much alcohol in his system they had to put him in a spark proof room at the hospital"
Prosecutor: "Would you say he was capable of making the decision of driving or not ?" - Dr.Jones answers :" absolutely not, with that much alcohol in his blood he would have not been able to make any responsible decisions"
Prosecutor: " In your professional opinion could he have been responsible enough to decide which side of the road to even drive on" - Dr Jones answers " No sir, there is no was he could even be responsible enough to keep from peeing all over out procedure rooms furnishings and that we can contest to"
" That's all your Honor , the prosecution rest."
Judge " do you wish to cross examine the states witness counselor ?" Defendants Attorney : "No sir, but after the prosecution proving my client was unable to make any decisions or be responsible for and calculable actions or being capable of making decisions I to motion to have all charges involving trying to enter into an agreement with the officer of any kind. He just proved he wasn't even capable, responsible nor even able to be held responsible for any decisions he made."
Judge : After consulting my wife on this matter I agree with you counselor, CASE DISMISSED.
