A Kenyan woman allegedly offered a bribe to Cobb County police officers who were seeking to arrest her after driving drunk and crashing her car. The crash broke her daughter’s left collarbone.
41-year-old Rachel Michuki of Kennesaw, Georgia was arrested on Wednesday last week after crashing into another vehicle on George Busbee Parkway, according to Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC).
Officers who arrested Ms. Michuki said she had bloodshot and watery eyes when they arrived at the scene between 9:20 am and 9:50 am. Ms. Michuki, who insisted that she was not drunk that morning but had a few drinks the previous night, failed an alcohol test at the scene.
She allegedly offered cash to an officer in exchange for not being arrested, telling the second officer that the first officer “can’t do it alone,” Cobb County arrest warrants read. The crash left Rachel’s daughter collarbone broken while the mother injured her leg.
Ms. Michuki was booked into the Cobb County jail on charges of bribery, serious injury by vehicle, DUI and failure to yield, according to records. She was released the following day on an $8,470 bond.
