Getting pulled over is never a fun experience. Many people try to weasel their way out of a ticket through flirting or an earnest explanation for why they were speeding. Floridian Margaret Garcia took trying to avoid getting a ticket to a whole new level.
Unfortunately for her, the cop was wearing a body cam, and her attempt to get out of a ticket has now gone viral. The footage shows that Garcia pulls down her dress, hoping that the sight of her breasts will make the Miami-Dade police officer ignore the marijuana and open container of alcohol on her passenger seat. When that doesn’t work, she tries whipping out a stack of cash after the cop asks for her license and registration.
The cop calmly replies, “Ma’am, that’s money.” She just doubles down and tries to hand him $2,000 and asks how much she owes him. For all her attempts at getting out of a ticket, Garcia ends up handcuffed and in the back of a police car after a female officer steps in to pull her dress back up.
The officer thought he was just pulling someone over for speeding, but it ended up being so much more. Bribery, drunk driving, and drug possession! The body cam footage offers a masterclass on what not to do when you get pulled over. A little flirting is one thing, but you should never take it to the level that Margaret Garcia did on that unfortunate night.
