When being pulled over by police, the last thing you should do, is bribe them. While in some instances, it may work, in others, it may pile on more charges that you initially found yourself dealing with. This “dumbass” from Wisconsin, unfortunately, learned this lesson the hard way.
“I am a dumbass white boy from Wisconsin.”
That’s the best Christopher Parker, 24, could offer Chicago cops Wednesday morning after he was pulled over during a traffic stop and officers found a handgun, a stack of cash, and a load of marijuana in his SUV.
Parker, pictured in the mug shot at right, allegedly offered police $100,000 if they would let him go, according to a police report. “I know that’s more than your salary,” he said, adding, “Take the car, take the money. I don’t care. Just let me walk, bro. Please let me go.”
Along with describing himself as a “dumbass,” the Eau Claire resident noted that, “I watch ‘Gangland,’ and I came to the South Side of Chicago to act like a big baller. I borrowed a gun from a friend for protection, and I was scared to be driving down here. I’m on vacation with my family and I have the gun because my girlfriend is scared, too.”

Along with gun and drug counts, Parker was charged with trying to bribe a cop. He is being held in the Cook County jail in lieu of $90,000 bail.
