UPDATE: Former district bus driver, coach arraigned on 21 felonies


ENID, Okla. — Background on Watts

Watts was interviewed by Doyle Oct. 16 at Enid Police Department.

Watts said he worked for Enid Public Schools as a bus driver, coach and also performed lunchroom duty. When asked what he coached, Watts said seventh-grade football. Watts said he took a year off to work for another company last year, but also had coached for Enid in the past for a total of about four years.

Watts said he also volunteered at Wichita South High School and coached some Little League programs in Pratt, Kan.

When Doyle asked Watts about the incident with the 15-year-old, Watts denied performing oral sex on the boy. However, Watts admitted to police some inappropriate things may have happened. When asked what things, Watts said lying too close to the boy in bed. He later said he might have accidentally brushed against the teen’s genitals, according to the affidavit.

Doyle asked Watts about getting a room with a king-sized bed, and Watts said it was all the motel had, according to the affidavit. Doyle told Watts he checked the records at the motel and they showed he had requested the single bed. Watts then said he really didn’t remember and maybe he got that bed out of habit, according to the affidavit.

Doyle told Watts what the 15-year-old had told investigators and noted Watts sat for 29 seconds staring at the floor and not saying anything. He continued staring at the floor while stating, “I would really rather not say right now,” according to the affidavit

Watts denied any sexual contact.

“As far as I know, there was no contact made,” Watts told Doyle. “I mean, if he wants to think that he can.”

The detective asked Watts what inappropriate things occurred, since Watts had said some things occurred. but not oral sex.

“I would say like lying next to him, and I might have moved over and moved my hand over him, but I don’t think I touched him, but I might have,” he said, according to the affidavit.
