BATON ROUGE - Sheriff's deputies arrested a Baton Rouge woman Thursday after they said she tried to bribe an officer during a traffic stop.

Deputies accused Malaina Saulny of bribery, speeding, theft, driving with a suspended license, not having registration or insurance, and driving with an altered motor vehicle inspection sticker.

According to an affidavit of probable cause, a deputy pulled over Saulny after noticing her inspection sticker had been altered. The deputy asked Saulny to show her driver's license, insurance and registration, but she didn't have them. A computer search showed she also had bench warrants for traffic violations and theft.

The deputy said while questioning Saulny, she offered him $100 if he would let her go. While she was being arrested, the deputy said Saulny also pulled away from him and claimed she wanted to get her money and cell phone out of her vehicle.

Deputies booked Saulny into the parish prison on the above charges.
