Former County Judge Candidate Arrested
The warrant stems from an incident involving Morrison at P W Distributing at 5205 East FM 517, Dickinson, TX on September 12, 2011 that was reported the same day around 10:06 AM.
The victim in this case is Kenneth Stafford who is reported to be a cabinet maker that was involved with the construction of Morrison's home who was assaulted with a firearm allegedly by Morrison during a confrontation at his business.
Deputies with the Liberty County Sheriff’s Department went to Morrison’s home at 3:30 AM on Wednesday morning and arrested Morrison on the outstanding warrant.
Bond was set at $40,000 and Justice of the Peace Stephen Hebert magistrated Morrison who is currently out of jail on bond.
Morrison was a candidate for Liberty County Judge in November of 2010 having beat one-term incumbent County Judge Phil Fitzgerald in the primary earlier that year.
Morrison announced about two weeks ago at a Republican Party meeting in Dayton that he was thinking about running for County Judge as a Republican according to those attending the meeting.
