Daniele Watts Claims LAPD detained her for showing ‘Affection’

Django Unchained actress Daniele Watts has said in a statement that she was handcuffed by police last week after she kissed her partner in public. Officials of Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) said on Sunday that the department was investigating those officers' conduct that had handcuffed the actress.

The actress has posted a video on social media where she is handcuffed. In T-shirt, gym shorts and athletic shoes, Daniele Watts was saying to officers that they had grabbed her for no reason.

In her Facebook page, Daniele Watts wrote, "As I was sitting in the back of the police car, I remembered the countless times my father came home frustrated or humiliated by the cops when he had done nothing wrong".

On the other hand, police said that the officers were responding to a 911 complaint about indecent exposure between couple in a silver Mercedes-Benz with the door open.

A statement of police said that after investigation, the officials have found that no crime had been committed and the actress was released.

After the incident, Daniele Watts and her companion, Brian James Lucas, have written about officers' behavior on their social media pages.

According to the actress, she was arrested for showing affection to her partner. When the police officers came to her, she said she was talking on her phone with her father. She walked away because she had not done anything wrong. Earlier after that, officers came and put her in handcuffs, she wrote.

Brian James Lucas, a Los Angeles chef, said that the actress was mistreated by the officers after refusing to provide them her identification. According to him, the officers had thrown the actress roughly into the back of the cop car. Lucas has also posted the pictures of the incident.
