COLUMBIA COUNTY, Ga. (WRDW) -- An Augusta man turned himself in Wednesday on a felony bribery warrant, public information officer Captain Steve Morris said.

Michael Osbon, 44, was pulled over on I-20 on suspicion of drunk driving, an incident report said. Osbon offered to pay the officer money, up to $30,000, to not arrest him, the report said.

"I would never bribe anyone. That would be unacceptable. Especially if it were in cash," Osbon said according to a report. "What can we do to make this work? ... I don't want to be in the Jail Report. That's worth $30 [thousand] cash."

Osbon was arrested on DUI charges originally, but was booked and released again on a $5,100 bond for the felony bribery warrant.
