A speeding driver apparently bribes a police officer with a doughnut to get out of a fine – and he surprisingly appears to accept it.
The Fulshear policeman, of Texas, seemingly pulled over a man for driving too fast.
However when the officer asked to see the driver’s licence he could not find it.
Instead, the driver pulls out a doughnut and says: ‘Will this work for you? I can’t seem to find my licence.’
And just like Chief Wiggum from the Simpsons, the Texas officer took the doughnut as a sweet bribery and replied: ‘You have a good day, sir.’
While the video is believed to be a spoof by Fulshear Police Department for World Doughnut Day on June 1, the sweet treat has been so closely associated with police that it’s become a trope.
The police-doughnut love affair is believed to have started around the 1950s, when officers working the graveyard shift would be limited with food choices during their break.

Doughnut shops were a quick and convenient food to accompany a much needed coffee to keep police alert on their shift.
The sugary snack heavily features in police films from ‘Police Academy’ to ‘Wreck-It Ralph’.
An officer in Chicago also once allegedly accepted a $5,000 bribe inside a doughnut bag.
