A Washington State driver made a big mistake when he allegedly tried to bribe a police officer with fast food when the officer noticed drugs in his car.

Officer Joshua Glass pulled a vehicle over on Thursday for a minor equipment violation, the Pasco Police Department wrote on its Facebook page.

Glass noticed baggies containing white powder in the center console, which the driver tried to conceal with a cellphone, authorities said. 

Eric Xavier Vela Arriaga, 27, allegedly asked Glass to disregard the cocaine and in exchange offered him a “hook-up” at Taco Bell, police said. 

Officer Glass thanked Arriaga for the offer, since he likes Taco Bell, but declined, police said. 

Arriaga was charged with cocaine possession.
