It began on December 27, when a woman called MPs and informed Watts about her methamphetamine use. When the deputies arrived, another neighbor called them and said that there was a man with a flashlight in his yard.
The investigators saw the light and approached the suspect. Coming closer, they heard strange sounds coming from a shallow stream.
The arrest report stated that Watts laughed and made bird sounds as he paced up and down. The MPs said that in addition to the mud smeared on his body, Watts was completely naked.
MPs said that before they could take him into custody, he escaped and hid under the stairs of a nearby mobile home. When he came out of the underground, the deputy tried to detain him. But it ended in a fight.
Authorities said Watts punched the deputy. Another deputy saw enough and used a stun gun.
Did not work.
The injured deputy pulled out his stun gun, aimed at Watts and fired.
When the suspect fled, the authorities decided to wait for reinforcements. They were joined by six more deputies and their K-9, Casper.
The crew managed to catch up with the suspect in the woods, where he reportedly got on all fours and growled like a dog. Accordingly, they sent their dog to pacify him.
But the MPs said Watts attacked the dog and bit it behind the ear. Watts allegedly knocked Casper down with a choke hold.
Even so, he could not hold on to it forever. After his release, MPs said Casper bit Watts on the head, finally giving MPs a chance to take control.
But despite the arrest, the MPs said Watts remained rebellious. When they took him out of the woods, Watts spat on one of the deputies, according to the arrest report.
A local hospital treated the man for a dog bite before authorities locked him in the county jail.
