Milwaukie Man Bribes State Cop

Written by Anna Erickson on July 26, 2014

A Milwaukie man has been arrested for bribing an Oregon State cop Friday.  The man offered the trooper money to tear up a ticket during a traffic stop on Highway 101.  20-year-old Austen Corno got pulled over for passing a car in a no passing zone.  When the trooper returned with Corno’s two-hundred and sixty dollar ticket, Corno showed a large amount of cash, offering the officer THREE-hundred and sixty dollars – one hundred MORE than the cost of the ticket – to tear it up.  Corno was arrested for Bribe Giving, a Class B felony, and booked in the Tillamook County Jail.
