The Daily American of Somerset ( http://bit.ly/S14a4T) reports 30-year-old Lindsay Burrows, of Somerset, was fined $400 after explaining Thursday that her alleged bribery offer was intended as a "dig" at the officer—and that she didn't have any money at the time anyway.
Somerset Officer Christopher Pile says he stopped Burrows in April because he mistakenly believed she had some outstanding arrest warrants. In the process, however, he learned her license was suspended and told her he had to impound the car.
That's when Pile claims she asked, "Do you take bribes? I've got money."
