UPI reports that the cops in Oklahoma City received an interesting offer.
Authorities in Oklahoma said a man who crashed into a parking lot walked into a jail and offered a stick he called the “last tree in the universe” as payment.
Oklahoma County sheriff’s deputies said Rondell Bailey walked into the downtown Oklahoma City jail with a stick and told deputies he wanted to offer the object, which he called the “last tree in the universe,” in exchange for dropping any possible charges against him, KOCO-TV, Oklahoma City, reported Wednesday.
The deputies said Bailey left after being told the stick was not an acceptable form of payment and threw a brick through a jail window.
Investigators said they discovered a white powder suspected to be methamphetamine during a search of the suspect’s truck.
