Lewis & Clark County Deputy Sheriff Chris Joyce arrested James Raymond Watson, 65, for Assault whh aWeapon luly 18 after he, allegedly struck another man in the head with his cane and then pulled a gun from his car and pointed it at the other man. According to the arrest affidavit, the victim, who had a laceration to his head, claimed he had taken Watsons cane after being struck, at which time he said Watson pulled a gun from his car. Although a witness also claimed to have seen a gun, Joyce was unable to locate a firearm in the area of the Laundromat. Watson claimed the victim assaulted him in the laundromat with the cane and denied a firearm was involved. According to the affidavit, Watson had injuries to his knees and one elbow but not to the areas where he claimed to have been hit. No firearm was found in the area of the laundromat. Watson was taken to the Lewis and Clark County Detention Center. After an initial court appearance he was released on his own recognizance and returned to Lincoln. Joyce noted that the jail population on the day of Watson's arrest stood at 110. A huge fabulous THANK YOU to the Lincoln Community and businesses that donated to and sponsored the Lincoln Rodeo.
