Predators' Watson charged with domestic assault

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Nashville Predators forward Austin Watson was arrested on a charge of domestic assault involving his girlfriend over the weekend.

Franklin Police Lt. Charles Warner said Wednesday that Watson was arrested Saturday evening. Watson was released from jail on $4,500 bond and is due in court June 28.

According to a Williamson County court affidavit, a Franklin police officer was flagged down by a witness to a possible domestic situation at a gas station. The officer noticed the passenger of a car "trying to back away from being shoved away." The report said the passenger said "stop" and was trying to cover her face.
