Authorities in New York City say a man who police found passed out in his running vehicle attempted to bribe his way out of an arrest. 

According to DNAinfo, police found Alcides Gonzabay sleeping in his car on the Henry Hudson Parkway on Feb. 9. Officers saw an open Captain Morgan bottle, as well as two bottles of wine near the 35-year-old. Reeking of booze, the White Plains resident was extremely honest with police. 

"I took coke before I drove...I was drinking on the highway, I'm not going to lie to you," he reportedly told them. "I was drinking tequila—a big bottle—around 12:30." He promised to give them $40,000 if they elected not to arrest him. 

Gonzabay was taken to St. Luke's Hospital after registering a .29 BAC. Even during his recovery period, he attempted to buy his freedom, promising officers cash and jewelry if they released him. 

In addition to the obvious DWI charge, Gonzabay was also charged for unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle and bribery. Those cops weren't for sale.
