By the time officers got to the house, Hueytown Police Chief Chuck Hagler says Watts was driving away.
According to Hagler
, Watts hit three cars along the side of the road before he
got out of his
car and ran away with a gun in his
said officers searched the surrounding areas until dogs lost the suspect's scent.
"I would consider anybody who flees from the vehicle, after wrecking, knowing the police are behind him and retaining a weapon to be dangerous," Hagler
urged people to not confront Watts when they see him, but said they should call police immediately.
