A Django Unchained actress is linked to a potentially shady run-in with the law. Daniele Watts claims Los Angeles cops detained her on Sept. 11 in San Fernando Valley after allegedly mistaking her for a prostitute.
Witnesses reported that she and her white boyfriend were caught in a “sexual act” in a public place in a car, authorities say. She then allegedly refused to show identification to cops after accusing them of racial profiling after seeing their public display of affection.
LAPD spokesperson, Officer Sally Madera, told CNN on Sunday, “Two people were briefly detained, but it was revealed no crime had been committed.” The couple claims only Watts was handcuffed.
Her boyfriend, Brian James Lucas (most known as celebrity chef Cheffy Be*Live) also posted footage of the arrest, with the caption, “saw a tatted RAWKer white boy and a hot bootie shorted black girl and thought we were a HO (prostitute) & a TRICK (client).”
Lucas says the pair have lawyered up and contacted the ACLU and NAACP about the alleged racial-profiling incident.
