Police said they were called to a home on Cypress Street on Saturday night because someone was crashing a 2005 Chevy SUV into parked cars. When they arrived they alleged they found Watkins and suspected her of being the driver. When they interviewed her, officers said she told them that she feared for her safety after getting into an argument with a man, an affidavit says.
“Ms. Watkins stated that earlier she was involved in a verbal argument with (a man). Ms. Watkins stated that she feared for her safety, picked up child victim one and placed him in the rear seat (not in an approved child safety seat),” the affidavit says.
