Illicit Sex Offer

SEPTEMBER 1--In a bid to dodge DUI and drug charges, a 24-year-old Floridian allegedly offered to perform sex acts upon three separate cops, solicitations that were rejected and resulted in bribery charges being filed against the woman.

According to cops, Arielle Engert was pulled over at 2:48 AM yesterday when her car was spotted weaving on a Clearwater street.

Engert was subsequently arrested after failing a series of field sobriety tests and registering a blood alcohol content at twice the legal limit.

Engert, seen at right and below, was also charged with marijuana possession after a small amount of pot was found in her purse.

After being transported to the county jail, Engert allegedly told Deputy Brian Sudbrink that she would perform fellatio and “other sex acts” if he would not charge her for the two misdemeanors.

As Engert was being processed into jail, a small bag of cocaine was located inside her bra. As a result, she was charged with narcotics possession and introduction of contraband into a detention facility, both felonies.

The discovery of the cocaine allegedly prompted Engert to offer deputies Obed Munoz and Eric Biddle the identical sexual services that were proffered to Sudbrink. The illicit offers to the law enforcement personnel led to the filing of three separate bribery counts against Engert.

Engert, whose rap sheet includes prior collars for drunk driving and possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, was freed from custody early today after posting $5150 bond. According to Engert’s Facebook page, she is studying philosophy at the University of Florida. (3 pages)
