“Django Unchained” Actress Charged With Lewd Conduct
“Django Unchained” actress Daniele Watts and her boyfriend Brian James Lucas are both being charged with lewd conduct for having sex in public outside of CBS Studios in LA.
Watts was detained in September after police were called to the 11900 block of Ventura Boulevard because residents and workers complained that there was a couple having sex in their car. Watts who is black, took to social media and blasted the LAPD for racism and racial profiling, claiming that they stopped her and her white boyfriend for making out because they are an interracial couple. Watt’s released audio from the incident showing her side of the story, it went viral, and attracted a lot of media attention.
It turns out that Sgt. Jim Parker, the officer who stopped Watts, has also released audio from the incident that tells a whole different story. Photos sent to TMZ by onlookers also show Watts straddling her boyfriend in a very compromising position in the car.
Both Watts and her boyfriend are set to be arraigned on November 13th. They each face up to six months jail time and a $1,000 fine if convicted.
