ODESSA - A 19-year-old in Odessa tried to bribe his way out of trouble but ended up with even more problems.

19-year-old Mark Lujan got pulled over because the car he was in matched the description of a car police were looking for.

That's when the officer saw pot inside.

While talking to the officer, the affidavit says Lujan offered him a deal to get some cash in exchange for letting him off the hook.

Needless to say, the officer didn't take the deal and opted to charge Lujan with bribery and possession instead.
