A man tried to buy his way out of going to jail. Around 3:30 a.m. Sunday, a Bernalillo County Sheriff’s deputy says Gabriel Ordonez ran a red light near Arenal and Isleta.

The deputy says Ordonez refused to sign the traffic citation he was given and told the deputy, “take me to jail for whatever the you want”. Ordonez was arrested and on the way to MDC when he reportedly offered the deputy $100 to let him go.

The deputy refused. Ordonez now faces a charge of bribery of a public officer.
