The cop thought he was joking until Ash asked to speak to a detective on scene. The cop listened as they spoke and then heard the detective exclaim:
“You trying to bribe me, oh no, buddy, that’s another charge.”
Warrants allege Ash offered the detective $10,000 to $15,000.
Police determined the Infiniti was stolen out of Clayton County and confiscated it, along with a handgun, 39 grams of marijuana and a scale.
Possessing the gun was a violation of Ash’s probation from a Fulton County case in which he received a stolen car, the report said.
In DeKalb he faces charges of bribery, theft by receiving, possessing a car with an altered VIN and more.
He remained in jail Tuesday.
