Waverly, NY (WBNG Binghamton) A mother is arrested after allegedly giving her son a ride while he was on the run from Waverly police Monday.

Shipman was allegedly picked up in a vehicle driven by his mother, Laurie S. Shipman, 48, on state Route 17.

She was charged with obstruction of governmental administration.

The search continues for Martin, who's wanted for criminal possession of a controlled substance in the seventh degree, possession of drug paraphernalia and criminal trespass.
