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.


Murray showed signs of intoxication and was extremely uncooperative with officers. He refused to comply with officers commands and became aggressive towards officers. This resulted in a Taser being utilized in an attempt to subdue Murray. Murray was momentarily subdued but then resumed his aggressive actions towards officers. This resulted in the Taser being utilized again. At this point, Murray became compliant and was arrested for operating his vehicle while under the influence of alcohol.


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
