ANDERSON — The Anderson police chief's job position is in question Monday evening.

Madison County prosecutor Rodney Cummings is calling for the demotion of Anderson police chief Tony Watters.

Cummings told the Anderson Herald-Bulletin that state police told him Watters came physically close and put a finger in the faces of troopers who were arresting the chief's son for domestic battery in early June.

Watters said he fully cooperated with the state police investigation.
