Murray attended a Night Riderz street takeover event and conducted reckless driving behaviors at the intersection of Bell Road and Murfreesboro Pike on August 6th, 2023, observed by an MNPD aviation unit. Officers responded and tried to conduct a traffic stop on the vehicle. Still, he fled and was followed by an aviation unit, during which he drove in a dangerous, reckless manner, creating the risk of death or severe injury. He eventually ditched his vehicle in front of his Walton Lane residence and ran into his house to hide from law enforcement. They collected his vehicle after he abandoned it, and a warrant was issued for his arrest on November 20th, 2023. An investigation revealed that Murray admitted to fleeing from MNPD and attempted to cover up his Evading Arrest by Motor Vehicle offense with Marcus Magee. Murray was booked on the outstanding warrant on March 21st.
