Iowa City police arrested a Mississippi man after he allegedly offered to pay officers in exchange for letting him go uncharged.

John Landry, 28, was charged with bribery, a felony charge.

He is being held at the Johnson County Jail on a $10,000 cash-only bond.

According to reports, police arrested Landry at 113 E. College St. for public intoxication early Sunday morning. Once arrested, police said he offered $300 to let him go without being charged.

After being warned, police said, he increased the offer to $500.

According to reports, Landry stated numerous times he was a lawyer and that he made more money in a day than the police do in one year.

Bribery is a Class D felony, punishable by up to five years in prison and a $7,500 fine.
