Gladys Knight song bribes a police officer


Soul legend Gladys Knight has reportedly helped a driver get away with a warning from police after serenading the arresting officer with a song, when a car she was travelling in was pulled over for speeding.

Officer Paul Rogerson, was checking the female driver’s licence when the woman said that she was with Gladys Knight, and that they were travelling to a choir performance.

At this point, Rogerson admitted he was a huge fan of the singer and that it was his birthday, whereupon Knight got out of the car and serenaded him with a rendition of ‘Happy Birthday’.
