Morgan was placed under arrest and transported to the parish detention center and booked on charges of possession of synthetic marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and a fugitive warrant.

Morgan was incarcerated pending bond proceedings. Upon release, Morgan must answer to the fugitive warrant for the appropriate jurisdiction.
