Friday morning at about 8 a.m. Plymouth Police were dispatched to a battery at the Teachers Credit Union at 1501 North Oak Drive. 

Officer DeLee’s report states that James Watts, 45, of Plymouth came up to a male subject he didn’t know outside the bank and started arguing with him. Watts then struck him in the face.

City officers arrived on the scene and James Watts was taken into custody without incident. He was incarcerated at the Marshall County Jail for Battery and held on a $1,500 cash bond.

Readers are reminded that charging information supported by an affidavit of probable cause is a mere allegation that a crime has been committed and that there is only probable cause to believe a crime has been committed. They are presumed innocent throughout the proceedings and are entitled to be represented by counsel and entitled to a trial by jury at which the State is obligated to provide proof beyond a reasonable doubt before a judgment of guilt may be made.
