A man involved in a love triangle is suing his girlfriend and another man she is dating after the couple accused him of crimes he claims he never committed.
Alto Watson III filed a lawsuit Feb. 18 in the District Court of Jefferson County Texas against Paul Chargois and Amy Delgado claiming Chargois attacked him and the two conspired to fabricate a story blaming Watson. He also cites malicious prosecution and instigation of false imprisonment.
The lawsuit states that Watson began dating Delgado in April 2013 unaware that she was also dating Chargois. Watson was invited over to the Delgado home on May 22, 2013, and Chargois found out about the visit, the suit claims.
Watson's suit alleges that Chargois went to the Delgado home and beat Watson with fists and with a gun, then took Delgado and fled. The complaint alleges the two created a story while they were alone to cover for Chargois' crimes and later told police that Watson had come to the home uninvited and had attacked Delgado.
Watson was arrested and tried for the crimes, the complaint stated.
Watson is seeking a public apology from Chargois and Delgado, to be published and circulated to the media at their expense, or in excess of $1 million, plus medical expenses, and court costs.
He is represented by John S. Morgan of the Morgan Law Firm.
The case has been assigned to Judge Milton Shuffield, 136th District Court.
