    Lawyers agree

    Answered . Yes, you can tell the police you did it, but (1) they don't have to believe you, (2) you place yourself at risk of going to jail, and (3) it might not even get your friend off the hook — they might decide to charge both of you.

    My absolutely infallible and perfectly free advice — don't do it.

    Answered . Why, oh why, would you want to do this??? But if you insist, PLEASE talk to an attorney first.
