When officers arrived, a warrant states they discovered the four juveniles had been living with the 55-year-old since June 19.

Court documents did not reveal any additional details about the juveniles or why they were staying with Watts.

Watts was arrested and booked into the Metro jail Monday night on a violation of the sex offender registry.

He was released on a $7,500 bond.
