Lawrence  County- Indiana State Police Jasper Detective, Sergeant Brock Werne  filed for and received an arrest warrant for Morgan Lee, 45, of Bedford,  following an investigation into Battery that allegedly occurred on  January 8, 2021, in Lawrence County.

The  investigation started when Bedford Chief of Police, Terry Moore,  contacted the Indiana State Police after receiving a complaint from a  citizen that Lee had battered them. Upon the conclusion of the  investigation by Detective Sergeant Brock Werne, all findings were  turned over to a Special Prosecutor for review. As a result, Senior  Prosecuting Attorney, Chris Gaal, filed the following charges in  Lawrence County Court:

Official Misconduct, Level 6 Felony
