Actress Daniele Watts, who has appeared in Weeds and Django Unchained, alleges she was detained by police for kissing her white boyfriend, Brian Lucas, in their car this week.
The incident happened on Thursday. Daniele emerged from a meeting at CBS, sat on her partner's lap in their car, and the two began making out.
After someone in a nearby office complained to the two about their PDA, Daniele says they stopped and she got on the phone to make a call to her family.
It was while Daniele was on the phone, and her partner was nearby, that cops arrived. When they asked for ID, she refused, and walked away.
Shortly thereafter, a car pulled up to her.
“So then I’m still talking to my dad,” Daniele told Buzzfeed, “and a squad car pulls up and shouts at me, ‘put your hands on the wall.”
She complied and was taken back to the scene of the crime.
According to Brian, the police then began to ask him repeatedly if he really knew Daniele, and he claims their questions were filled with "innuendo."
He alleges they were implying she was a prostitute.
After sitting on the sidewalk handcuffed for an extended period of time, Daniele produced her ID and the couple were allowed to leave.
The cuffs had by that point cut Daniele's wrists.
The Los Angeles Police Department does not have a record of the incident.
