HometownCleveland’s exposé of the sheriff entitled “Eric Watson, Say it Ain’t So,” along with all comments and three screen captures of sheriff Eric Watson's intimate photos and text exchanges with a woman who has been a frequent inmate at the Bradley County jail, was “taken down” by Facebook a couple of hours ago.
It’s interesting to note that just this morning, a source within the BCSO informed us that Watson was going ballistic, berating his command staff, demanding to know where the leaks were coming from and threatening people if they don’t stop.
Ironically, when Eric Watson was a BCSO deputy and a state representative, he himself leaked info about former sheriff Jim Ruth. He thought it was funny back then when Ruth berated and threatened his command staff. Now? Not so much.
But Eric and his surrogates (and Facebook) can’t stop this train. The investigation surrounding him includes the FBI, TBI and a special prosecutor appointed by the district attorney. Plus, worst of all for him, Eric Watson has the HTC Newshound on his trail.
