New York Graffiti Artist Attempts World's Most Awkward Police Bribe

19 year-old Arnaldo Eusebio was busted by cops last night in Manhattan with tagging gear. He tried to get out of it via a classic police bribe. Only he was really awkward about it.

According to the New York Post Eusebio was caught on Sheridan Avenue near 164th st. at 3 a.m. After being detained, he, told the cops: "I heard that if you give a cop money, they will let you go. All I have is 10 bucks. I just want to see if you'll let me go." Then he pulled a $10 bill from his shoe.

Poor kid. On the bright side, Representative James Traficant's first bribery scandal didn't go much better. This kid's got a bright future in politics followed by a seven-year prison sentence.
