A convicted felon, who was armed with a sawed-off shotgun, remains in custody this morning after refusing to pull over for police over the weekend. An officer attempted to stop 26-year-old Deonta Murry, for a traffic violation, on Murfreesboro Road near downtown at 9:45 Sunday night. Murry ignored the officer, making several turns. He continued all the way to the 100 block of Chestnut Lane, traveling approximately 25mph, ignoring the officer’s lights and siren. Once Murry finally stopped, officers approached and spotted a sawed-off shotgun wedged between the front seat and center console. Officers ordered Murry and his passenger, Anwar Hayes, from the vehicle.

While at the scene, officers found Murry in possession of marijuana. Officers arrested Murry and transported him to the Williamson County Jail. During the booking process, officers found Murry in possession of cocaine. Murry’s charges are as follows:

  • Driving on a Revoked Driver’s license
  • Felony Evading
  • Resisting Stop, Halt, Frisk
  • Felon in Possession of a Prohibited Weapon
  • Felony Possession of a Weapon
  • Introduction of Contraband into a Penal Facility
  • Marijuana Possession
  • Cocaine Possession

Murry is a convicted felon. He remains jailed on the $64,000 bond set by the Magistrate. Hayes, who was wanted for Failure to Appear, was arrested and later released on the $5,000 bond set by the Magistrate. Both suspects are due in court 04/14/2016 at 1pm.
