Amidst multiple allegations and charges against current Sheriff Eric Watson, the chief of the Criminal Investigations Division at the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office, Capt. Steve Lawson, has resigned and picked up papers to challenge Watson in the next election. The Times Free Press reports that Lawson said he “can no longer respect or believe the person I work for.” Watson, who faces trial on Jan. 22 for 12 felony counts of having or using forged auto titles, has announced he would seek reelection.
