At 11:25 p.m. on Nov. 20, Delphos Police observed a vehicle being operated erratically in the 1700 block of East Fifth Street. The vehicle was being operated in the wrong (oncoming) lane of travel and “drifting” across all lanes. Officers stopped the vehicle and identified the driver as 55-year-old Delphos resident Randall L. Murray.
Officers impounded Murray’s vehicle and transported him to the Delphos Police Department for a breathalyzer test and processing of paperwork. Murray was initially cooperative but again became aggressive towards officers when he realized his court date would conflict with a hunting trip he had planned. This resulted in a physical confrontation. To end this confrontation, officers were forced to utilize the Taser again. This caused Murray to cease his aggressive actions towards officers.
Murray was then transported to the Allen County Jail and booked in for operating a vehicle while intoxicated, resisting arrest and obstructing official business
