According to WTWO-TV, Murray was taken into custody and charged with criminal recklessness and resisting law enforcement after the Live PD episode aired. He was held without bail at first, but was later released on his own recognizance on January 14.

After Monday's pursuit, Murray was preliminarily charged with both felony and misdemeanor resisting law enforcement. reckless driving, possession of methamphetamine, maintaining a common nuisance and auto theft. Jail records show he is being held on $15,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court on Friday.
