Internet reacts to man's ironic face tattoo after speeding arrest

A man who was arrested after leading police on two high-speed pursuits in just a number of months has been mocked for his forehead tattoo, again.

In December 2019 Donald Murray was featured on an episode of LivePD when he was live streamed speeding away from Indiana police who attempted to pull him over for driving without headlights.

After crashing into a tree and escaping on foot, viewers were able to help identify the man because of his obvious face tattoos, particularly the one across his forehead that reads “Crime Pays”, and he was arrested days later.

At the time of his first arrest Murray, 38, faced charges of resisting law enforcement and reckless driving.

After being released on January 14, Murray was involved in another police chase on Monday morning (local time).

The second police pursuit was much shorter and police were able to arrest Murray on the spot, charging him with possession of methamphetamine, car theft and for resisting law enforcement again.

His mugshot featuring his infamous face tattoo was posted on Twitter by local police officer Ryan Adamson and once again, was mocked by social media users, some of whom recognised him for his prior arrest in December.

“Is that tattoo meant to be ironic?” one person asked.

“Wasn’t he just in jail?” another person commented.

Most people felt Murray should rethink his tattoo choices.

“He’s not making a very good case for crime paying,” a Twitter user wrote.

“For his lawyer it pays but not so much for him,” a user responded.

“Unfortunate tattoo in so many ways,” a person commented.

“I hate to judge a person on his looks but….” another wrote.

Indiana news outlet Kiro7 jumped in on the joke, reporting Murray’s second arrest with the headline ‘Crime is still not paying off’.
