Brown was a passenger in Morgan's car when they were pulled over on Rte. 63 in Geneseo around 5:45 p.m. Wednesday. Police say Brown also tried to run away.

She is charged with second degree menacing, a class A misdemeanor. Brown's case was waived to the grand jury.

The search in Livingston County continues for Morgan who is considered armed and dangerous. Authorities say Morgan pointed a gun at an officer during the traffic stop.

Sheriff Dougherty says Morgan is a career criminal. Morgan spent approximately 211 months in federal prison and was released in March of 2017 for conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute a controlled substance. Prior to those charges, Morgan was arrested for robbery in Texas in 1994 where he was sentenced to two years in prison.

The sheriff says Morgan took off because he thought there was a warrant out for his arrest.

Morgan is 5'7" and 200 lbs and was last seen wearing a grey hoodie, grey baseball cap, and blue jeans. Morgan is now clean-shaven. 

If you have any information on Morgan's whereabouts, you are asked to call 911.
