Watson Back In Jail

A Charlottesville man is back in jail after leading police on a high-speed chase soon after he got out of prison.

Curtis Watson had been released in 2012 after serving twelve years on a number of charges including homicide.

Watson was stopped at a police checkpoint in June but sped off, leading police on the chase. He also tried to escape on foot but was captured.

Watson was convicted of eluding police and a probation violation.

This time around Watson has been sentenced to over seven years in jail.

100 Black Men Celebrated

The group 100 Black Men of Virginia celebrated some successes Monday night.

The organization serves as a steward of leadership, values and opportunity for the African American community, with chapters nationwide.

Monday night the organization’s Central Virginia Chapter was named the National Chapter of the Year for its work mentoring area youth; its scholarships, and its M Cubed program, a math program for middle school kids in Albemarle County.

The group received a check for $6,409 from Whole Foods for work they've done with the grocery store. The money will go directly to their college scholarship program.
