Call this a case of mistaken identity, or the LAPD doing a smash-up job as usual.
Actress Daniele Watts, of D’jango Unchained, Weeds, Partners is a helluva an actress. With 34 credits to her name since 2008 she has been a busy girl on-screen. After working with Leo DiCaprio, Samuel Jackson, and being the girlfriend of successful Raw food chef Brian James Lucas, Daniele Watts is no stranger to the red carpet.
Apparently, these LAPD officers thought she was a stranger, and a prostitute to boot.
On 9/11 Daniele Watts and her boyfriend, Brian Lucas, were in a parked car in outside of CBS Studios making out, when they were approached by two officers, after a resident phoned in a suspicious couple.
According to gossip rag TMZ;
Daniele had just left a meeting at CBS with a director. Brian tells us … he was told a resident of a nearby apartment saw them making out and called the cops.
Brian tells us LAPD officers came up to them with a suspicious eye. Brian believes it’s because cops saw “a tatted rocker white boy and a hot bootie shorted black girl and thought we were HO & a trick.”
Daniele was fully clothed and so was Brian. The cops demanded their IDs to which Brian complied but she refused. She walked away assuming it was no big deal. The cops however saw this as a reason to cuff her and throw her in the back of the car.
Poor Daniele suffered not only mentally, but physically. Although Daniele did her best to work with and talk to the officers after they had detained her, they made her break down and cry. The LAPD were very forceful and threw her into the back of the car and her cuffs were so tight, she received THIS INJURY;
That is just horrifying.
Too far LAPD. The LAPD have always had a bad reputation and this is not helping. Assuming they were getting freaky illegally? I don’t think you would bust them unless there was full sex. I would think it’s more likely in a ‘nice’ neighborhood like Burbank it’s because they were interracial.
Brian and Daniele have detained a lawyer, and will file a complaint with the LAPD. As they should. They have this blogger’s support, 1000%.
