Major James M. Hall
Troop A Commander


While on patrol, SP Machias Troopers came upon a vehicle in a ditch on Rt. 242 in Machias.  Troopers located two males near the vehicle, both of whom had an odor of an alcoholic beverage on their breath.  Watts identified himself as the driver and was administered standardized field sobriety tests, which he failed.  Watts was arrested, transported to SP Machias for processing, and was released to a third party on appearance tickets.

Watts is due back in Machias town court in October.
