SULLIVAN COUNTY, Tenn. -

A man is facing charges after he came to the Sullivan County jail to pay his wife's bond.

The Sullivan County Sheriff's Office says they approached a car Wednesday after getting information that a man who had a warrant for his arrest was in the car.

They say the man in the car lied to officers about his identity; officers later identified the man as Derick Watson.

Watson is being charged on the outstanding violation of his probation warrant, along with criminal impersonation.
