Russian police said that a fellow police officer who attempted to eat the bribe money given him by a motorist was fined $19,000.

The Russian Investigative Committee said on Monday that a court in the Rtishchevsky district convicted Andrey Zakharov of accepting the $478 bribe to return a motorist’s suspended license in March and he was sentenced to pay the fine.

Police said that internal police investigators confronted Zakharov directly after he accepted the bribe and he attempted to eat the cash to destroy the evidence.

The court also banned Zakharov from serving in a law-enforcement position for two years.
