‘Django Unchained’ actress Daniele Watts and her boyfriend Brian James Lucas have both been charged with ‘Lewd Conduct’ by the Los Angeles Police Department. The couple were caught engaged in sexual intercourse in broad daylight in a public place.
Watts, whose boyfriend is white initially denied any wrong doing–saying all they did was kiss in the car– claiming they were racially profiled by the police because they are an interracial couple. When Watts wouldn’t provide her ID after being asked, she was placed in handcuffs. At first, Watts tried to play the celebrity card to the cops, throwing names like “publicists” and whatnot in the mix. But when that did not work, she then proceeded to a claim she was sure would get everyone up in arms.
And as it so often happens, “civil rights leaders” across the country all cued up and were getting ready for rallies, marches, and a chance to be photographed when witnesses from the neighborhood came forward with still photographs of the actress and her boyfriend taken during the action.
The photos showed the actress and her man going at it with car door wide open, one foot out on the ground, one hand holding on to her boyfriend with the other hand clinging on to the car’s open roof just for balance and support. See the action photo, below … SMH
If found guilty, both Watts and her boyfriend, Brian James Lucas, could face a maximum of six months in jail and a $1,000 fine, according to Frank Mateljan, spokesman for the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office.
