According to online records, Watson, 55, was pulled over at 1:15 a.m. at the 9 mile marker on eastbound I-44.
The arrest occurred three weeks and two days ago, but at this point, the prosecuting attorney has not filed any charges.
An action filed in Jasper County Circuit Court July 7 indicates Watson refused to take a breathalyzer test.
Judge Joseph Hensley issued a stay order enabling Watson to be able to continue driving until a hearing is held. That hearing is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. September 16.
Watson was formerly Newton County prosecuting attorney.
