Traffic officer accepted cell phone bribe, agents say

Judicial agents detained another traffic policeman Wednesday and said he scammed a bribe of a cell telephone from a motorist.

The case began with a vehicle collision in Santa Ana Friday, said the Judicial Investigating Organization. One of the drivers in the mishap was approached by a traffic officer who threatened to write a ticket carrying a high fine.  Once the officer learned that the motorist ran a cell telephone shop, he made an offer to accept a cell phone in exchange for not writing a traffic ticket, said agents.

Agents detained the 50-year-old suspect at a Guadalupe cell telephone store where he was alleged to be picking up the telephone as a bribe. The motorist had contacted agents.
