The Madison police officer accused of sexual abuse was released from Huntsville Hospital Tuesday morning and placed under arrest.

Authorities have not revealed a specific number of alleged victims, but they do anticipate more charges against Watson, who was in Huntsville Hospital for an undisclosed reason.
