Updated May 27, 2019: Stan Lee's former business manager Keya Morgan was arrested Saturday in Phoenix, Arizona, according to Associated Press. An arrest warrant was filed earlier this month for Morgan on a variety of charges involving his former client.

According to AP, "Morgan faces felony charges including theft, embezzlement, forgery or fraud against an elder adult, and false imprisonment of an elder adult. A misdemeanor count also alleges elder abuse."

In a statement provided to AP, Morgan's lawyer Alex Kessel said that he had been in contact with prosecutors for Morgan to turn himself in on Tuesday,.

"It is unfortunate that the DA and police did not honor our commitment to surrender next week and arrested him," Kessel said in an email.

Morgan's bail has reportedly been set at $300,000, and expected to be extradited to Los Angeles to face charges.

Original Story: Stan Lee's former manager Keya Morgan has been charged with five counts of elder abuse in Los Angeles Superior Court, according to Reuters. An arrest warrant has reportedly been issued for Morgan.

The charges, reportedly filed May 10, may stem from a series of incidents relayed in court documents related to a restraining order Lee's representatives sought against Morgan in 2018. Those documents alleged Morgan financially abused Lee while also segregating him from his family. Morgan was also arrested for filing a false police report in which he allegedly reported a false claim of attempted robbery of Lee's property.

Morgan was subsequently reported to be under investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department for formal allegations of elder abuse. Reuters did not specify whether the May 10 charges stemmed directly from this investigation.
