A man with a huge forehead tattoo which emblazoned the words “Crime Pays” across his forehead has been arrested again, ABC News reports. WTHI-TV 10 reported that the chase incident happened just before 11:00 on Monday morning.

This walking advertisement for career crime has been in prison before, further citing ABC News.
Donald Murray, 38, of Terre Haute, Indiana has landed back in prison after leading the police on a short chase on February 17. At the end of the short police chase, Murray was arrested and charged with “several crimes.”
NBC followed up explaining the nature of his crimes. Mr. Murray was charged with resisting law enforcement, reckless driving, possession of methamphetamine, maintaining a common nuisance, and auto theft. NBC cites the Terre Haute police department via its Facebook.
NBC cited its affiliate news station My Wabash Valley. My Wabash Valley reports that Murray was in prison in January and was originally held without bail. He was released on January 14 on his own recognizance.
The Terre Haute police department describes Mr. Murray’s offenses as follows,
“Murray was charged with resisting (felony), resisting (misdemeanor), reckless driving, possession of methamphetamine, maintaining a common nuisance, and auto theft.”
Further citing ABC News, Murray has been arrested more than once in the last few months. In a sense, Mr. Murray is a bit of a criminal celebrity. He first came to public recognition with his appearance on “Live PD,” on an episode that featured him. On “Live PD” he was charged for driving without headlights engaged. He appeared on “Live PD” on November 30, 2019. His episode has been shared via Facebook, Twitter, and other handles of the A&E reality show. In this episode, he allegedly told responding officers that he “didn’t know his name.” That did not present a problem this week as he has an incredibly easy identifier plastered to his forehead.
ABC News citing court records states that Murray will be held on a $15,000 bond following the chase that landed him in jail this time. He will appear in court Friday, February 21.
Twitter had a bit of fun trying to figure out why Mr. Murray decided on the loud statement tattoo when he was running from the police. Comments included the following,
“Always nice to see a warning label and IQ level indicator.”
“Shouldn’t be too hard to spot that dude.”
“He should be arrested for that damn face tattoo.”
“He better hope crime pays, no one will be hiring him for any real type of employment.”
“Should be easy to find.”
So on and so forth.
NBC describes the incident that appeared on “Live PD” as a “high-speed pursuit.” This would then be the second automotive chase that Mr. Murray has led. Perhaps he has a future in racing employment? This is not clear.

This incident comes as Terre Haute, Indiana’s city and NAACP are reconsidering their contract with A&E over the Live PD program. Some argue that Live PD has generated some negative press about Terre Haute. The police force argues that the show stimulates healthy communication between law enforcement and the public.
