Former Madison County sheriff's deputy heading to court

Justin Watson is set to go in front of a judge in federal court today and face charges of civil rights violations and obstruction of justice.

We'll have a crew in the courtroom and will continually bring you updates on Watson's arraignment as they come in.

Trump's demeanor was criticized by Jeb Bush, calling his rhetoric "over-the-top." Check out how Trump, Bush and the other candidates performed in last night's debate.
