ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Authorities says an Albuquerque man arrested for drunken driving tried to get out of his predicament by offering deputies a free gift in exchange - Mountain Dew.

KOAT-TV reports (https://goo.gl/uozhEj) that Luis Rodriguez-Neri was arrested Monday shortly after Bernalillo County Sheriff’s deputies found his car smashed into a light pole.

Deputies say Rodriguez-Neri told them he had “six shots of Bacardi” before getting behind the wheel. Authorities say he refused field sobriety alcohol tests.

While at the South Valley Command Center, deputies said Rodriguez-Neri offered them Mountain Dew if they let him go.

He faces charges of aggravated drunken driving, leaving the scene of an accident and bribing a public official.

It was not known if he had an attorney.
