ELMHURST — A man busted for an open container of beer and drug possession picked up another charge — bribery — after telling police officers he'd give them "whatever I got" if they let him go, according to the district attorney's office.
The suspect was approached by police for drinking a can of Heineken on the corner of Ithaca Street and Baxter Avenue in Elmhurst just before 3 a.m. on May 13, 2014, according to police.
Police then found 32 pills, including Ecstasy, Oxycodone and MDMA, and the suspect allegedly told Police Officer John Lee that he "sells the pills for money."
He was arrested and, while waiting in the back of the precinct squad car, offered two other police officers $100 if they let him go.
"I'll give you whatever I got, if you let me go," he said, according to the criminal complaint.
The suspect was charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance and bribery, among other charges.
HIs lawyer declined to comment.
He was arraigned in Queens Criminal Court on May 13 and faces up to nine years in prison if convicted.
Editor's note: The suspect later took a plea deal for disorderly conduct for the charges.
