Ware's friend, Matthew Hall, is accused of being his getaway driver.

Ware has been in jail since June 29 and held without bond. His attorney asked a judge for the training and disciplinary records for both officers. He also asked for information about the company that made the body and dash cameras for both officers. Prosecutors agreed to provide those records.
