A 29-year-old Beatrice man who was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving also is accused of trying to bribe his way out of trouble.

Aaron Lawson was pulled over on Saturday night in Beatrice.

The officer says he suspected Lawson was drunk, but Lawson refused to take any sobriety tests. Court documents say Lawson told the officer he could "hook him up with anything" and later offered the officer $2,000 to let him go without charges.

Lawson faces felony charges of third-offense drunken driving and of bribery.

A public phone listing for Lawson could not be found. Online court records don't list the case yet. Lawson's lawyer from a 2011 case said Tuesday that he knows nothing about the new allegations.
