A Louisiana man is a wanted fugitive after failing to make a court appearance.

Michael Morant, 39, was scheduled to plead guilty Thursday to two felony drug charges, plus a misdemeanor count of weapon possession.

Morant was arrested with a New Orleans woman in March 2006 during a Brazos County traffic stop. The couple was stopped on Highway 6 near Millican for speeding. Tthat's when authorities found the drugs.

Since Morant didn't show up in court Thursday, he could be charged with failure to appear.
