Tulsa man accused of leaving obscene messages on church answering machine

DUNCAN, Okla._A Tulsa man is in the Stephens County Jail for violating a protective order, but police say he's also accused of leaving several obscene messages on a Duncan church's answering machine.

Police say Gary Watts Jr. left about a half-dozen obscene and harassing messages on an answering machine at the First United Methodist Church in Marlow in August. The church's pastor alerted police after he became concerned about the messages.

Watts's family attends the church and says he suffers from mental disabilities. The family had previously filed a protective order against Watts. Right now, Watts is facing charges for violating his protective order multiple times.

Police say they don't think the church will be pressing any charges.
