Watson arrested on marijuana possession charge in South Kingstown

January 22, 2012

State Representative Robert Watson of East Greenwich, who was deposed as House minority leader following his arrest last year, faces a new charge, according to the ProJo:

Watson was arrested early Sunday morning and charged with possession of marijuana after a plow operator called the South Kingstown police to report an erratic driver.

Democrat Mark Schwager has made clear his intention to run this year for the seat held by Watson. Watson has remained publicly undecided on whether he plans to seek reelection.
