I kind of thought this sort of thing only happened on bad TV sitcoms, but apparently not. On Friday afternoon a Framingham man stopped for traffic violations allegedly tried to convince a Southborough police officer to look the other way by offering him “a large sum of money.” It didn’t work. In fact, the stunt earned him an additional charge of attempted bribery.
Find that story and more in the latest dispatch from the Southborough Police Department (via their Facebook page).
