CALIPATRIA — A teen here came up with what he apparently thought was a good way to get out of a jam Thursday afternoon.
The 14-year-old boy offered Calipatria police Officer Brandon Heidelberg a $10 bribe after the boy was caught in school carrying a knife.
Heidelberg responded with a laugh, said Calipatria Police Chief Reggie Gomez.
Bill E. Young Jr. Middle School administrators became aware of the situation after other students told them the boy was carrying a knife. He was apprehended right before school ended for the day.
