A speeding driver, who was pulled over by a police officer, came up with a rather 'sweet' idea to eliminate the cop's sourness. The man was caught for over-speeding by a cop in Fulshear, Texas, and offered him a colourful doughnut to get away with the fine. Surprisingly, the cop accepts the speed violator's 'sweet bribe' and lets him off without any fine.
Although hilarious, the video is believed to be a spoof by Fulshear Police Department for World Doughnut Day on June 1.
The clip shows a policeman asking the driver for his licence after he is pulled over for driving too fast. But, the driver is unable to find his licence and pulls out a doughnut for the cop. "Will this work for you? I can't seem to find my licence," the man is heard saying in the video. The cop quickly accepts the doughnut and tells the man, "You have a good day, sir."

It is believed that back in 1950s, police officers working the graveyard shift had limited food choices during their break and doughnut shops were their only option.
Doughnuts have also been features in police films from 'Police Academy' to 'Wreck-It Ralph', according to Daily Mail report.
