Seventh DWI for Arkansas Man Who Led Deputies on Chase


A man from Austin, Arkansas, was issued his seventh DWI Sunday, March 4, according to Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office.

On Sunday morning, deputies found a man, later identified as Angus Lee Murray, 34, from Austin, asleep in his truck at a North Little Rock gas station.  Authorities woke him up, but Murray sped off.  

Sheriff’s deputies ended up in a car chase with Murray throughout North Little Rock neighborhoods until he ended up crashing into a tree.  

Then Murray tried to run away but fell into a hole and that’s when deputies arrested him, according to the report.

He’s accused of violating the Omnibus DWI Act, which is a DWI for the fourth time and he has seven, two counts of fleeing, two counts of aggravated assault, driving with a suspended, or revoked, license, careless driving and refusal to submit to chemical test.

Murray pleaded not guilty in district court Monday, March 4.

He’s still in the Pulaski County jail with his bond set at $100,000.  His next court date is May 6.
