A motorcyclist was arrested in the Port Orange area early Saturday after he tried to bribe his way out of a speeding ticket, the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office said.
According to sheriff’s spokesman Gary Davidson, a deputy spotted 20-year-old Andrew Ouellette traveling 67 mph in a 50 mph zone on Nova Road about 3:30 a.m. Saturday.
The deputy pulled Ouellette over near the intersection of Herbert Street and Old Hammock Road. According to the Sherriff’s Office, Ouellette told the deputy he had been ticketed several times recently and “couldn’t afford another one,” asking if there was anything he could do to avoid being cited.
Davidson said Ouellette then pulled a roll of cash from his pocket and asked the deputy, “Are you sure we can’t do anything?”
When the deputy handcuffed him, Ouellette insisted his comment was not meant to be taken as a bribe, Davidson said. “However, he also couldn’t provide another explanation for the meaning of his comment.”
