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.
