Police in Indiana are looking for a man suspected of leading them on a car chase before slamming into a tree and escaping.
But the suspect, who Terre Haute police believe is Donald Murray, will likely have a hard time hiding from being discovered thanks to his tattoo choices.
According to an image aired on A&E’s “Live PD” show, the 38-year old sports a tattoo across his forehead that reads “Crime Pays.”
Murray allegedly led police on an “intense high-speed pursuit” after he was spotted driving without any lights on, according to the show.
He eventually crashed the car he was driving into a tree and fled on foot. A passenger in the vehicle told police the he didn’t know the name of the driver, according to investigators.
However, a tip from a “Live PD” viewer resulted in police naming Murray as the suspect and a mug shot from a prior arrest showed the tattoo he is possibly now regretting.
“He shouldn’t be hard to spot,” the show’s co-host Tom Morris Jr. said. “I mean, look at this guy!”
The chase occurred at the end of the “Live PD” episode last Friday.

His tat should really say “I’m stupid”?

He gets food and board at the taxpayers expense. Seems like a fitting tattoo to me.
