"The next day I saw the picture of my house on the website," Watkins said. "That was the one thing that set me off."
Hage said he had nothing to do with the picture and no affiliation with the website.
"I don't even know where he lives. I knew nothing about the article," Hage said Wednesday. "He wouldn't let me talk, so all I could do was sit there and take it."
Watkins told the Gazette the windows of his wife's car have been smashed several times and that someone has broken a window in his house with a hammer since the picture ran.
In the video, Watkins apologized to Hage's ex-wife and her attorney, Christine Wallace, after yelling at Hage.
Wallace said Wednesday she could not comment on the video.
State Supreme Court Administrator Steve Canterbury said he watched the video of the hearing Wednesday.
"Obviously the judge lost his temper. Judges are humans, they can lose their temper," Canterbury said. "Ideally, he would've called a recess, regained his composure and come back even-tempered and he didn't."
The state Judicial Investigation Commission investigates complaints over judges. Canterbury said he hasn't decided whether the video warrants filing a complaint on Watkins with the commission.
"I'm not going to rush to judgment," he said.
According to the state Code of Judicial Conduct, "A judge shall be patient, dignified, and courteous to litigants, jurors, witnesses, lawyers, and others with whom the judge deals in an official capacity ..."
Hage told the Gazette he has filed several complaints about Watkins with the judicial commission.
