Police told WHBQ Watkins was holding a handgun while he was steering the vehicle and screaming at the victims.
Watkins started driving toward the victims, spinning his tires on the vehicle. According to police, that’s when the victims ran home in different directions.
After splitting up, Watkins continued to pursue the children.
The victim told police they heard him say, “(N-word), I’ll kill you.”
Another victim said Watkins pointed a gun at them.
A witness told police Watkins was seen chasing the victims at a high rate of speed, running them off the road.

Watkins has been charged with two counts of aggravated assault. He’s expected in court Monday.
