ST. LOUIS > Deputies charged with assault in off-duty incident - Two deputies with the city marshal's office have been charged with assaulting a man in an unprovoked attack. Charles J. Watkins, 54, and Cory L. Upchurch, 41, are charged with jumping out of a vehicle on Sunday at 1118 Mallinckrodt Street and punching and kicking the boyfriend of Watkins' daughter.

Each was charged Thursday with a single misdemeanor count of third-degree assault.

Sam Dotson, the mayor's operations director, said he has recommended the city's personnel director place the two on forced leave until more can be learned or the charges are resolved. He noted the deputies were not on duty or acting in their official capacities when the alleged incident occurred.
