PALMER MORRISON WATTS – Today we remember Palmer Morrison Watts, Sheriff of Tuscaloosa County Alabama 100 years ago. His end of watch was August 15, 1918. Sheriff Watts was shot and killed while attempting to arrest a fugitive who was operating a whisky still. Sheriff Watts had a wife and two small daughters when he was killed.

During the first few days of school while working student drop off at Northport Elementary, Sgt. Eric Bowles made a new friend. The little guy in the picture got out of his vehicle and approached Sgt. Bowles. He grabbed him by the hand and Sgt. Bowles walked him into school him.

The Tuscaloosa County Sheriff’s Office received information that a domestic incident had occurred in the area of Holt High School. The information received on of the subjects involved was possibly armed and was possibly headed to the school. The SRO at the school received the information and notified school administration in which they called for a lock down. Other deputies later arrived and located the subject and spoke with him. No weapon was located and no threats were made toward the school or students. The lock down was lifted and school operations are back to normal.
