Django Unchained actress claims harrassment by LAPD after kissing white boyfriend

The Django Unchained actress who claimed she was harassed and injured by police after kissing her boyfriend was actually having sex in her car it is alleged, and then went on a rant accusing police of not knowing who she was.

In a police audio of the incident obtained by TMZ, Daniele Watts is heard accusing the police of racism when Sgt. Jim Parker asks her for ID. She then tells cops that they don’t who she is before storming off, refusing to show her ID.

Witnesses from the nearby Directors Guild office building allegedly told the police they were watching her and her boyfriend have sex in the passenger seat with the door open.

One eyewitness said the man was sitting in the seat while she was straddling him, in plain sight of everyone around them.

After storming off, Watts was apprehended by a police officer a short distance away and brought back where she continued her rant.

In the audio, Sgt. Parker can be heard telling Watts that the police were responding to calls from a nearby office.

She says: ‘I bet there’s at least one person up there who’s a racist. I bet you. I bet you’re a little bit racist.’

After refusing to give her name, Watts demands to know Sgt. Parker’s first name, before adding: ‘I think I’d like to identify you to my publicist. What’s your first name?’

She continues: ‘I guess we all have our destinies… I serve freedom and love. You guys serve detainment. That’s cool.

‘I hope you feel free… I hope when you’re f***ing your spouses you really feel alive. That you feel thankful, full of gratitude for the freedom that you have, that you share with the people of this country.’

Watts’ boyfriend Brian Lucas filmed her crying as she was handcuffed and questioned by police for making out with her partner in public.

Police also questioned Lucas and asked him questions like ‘Do you really know her?’ – seemingly insinuating that Watts was soliciting.

The couple described the incident to Buzzfeed, saying they were kissing in Lucas’ car outside the CBS Studio Center in Studio City on Thursday when someone in a nearby office walked by and told them to stop.

‘A Caucasian guy in a business suit comes downstairs and says, “Can you guys stop putting on a show? I have people who are trying to work up there”,’ Watts told ABC 7.

Watts says she was fully dressed and only kissing when police were called to the scene, and asked for the couple’s identification.

Lucas handed police his ID, but Watts refused and started walking away from the scene.

‘I didn’t have the stomach for someone on a power trip when I knew I hadn’t done anything wrong,’ Watts told Buzzfeed.

That’s when police stopped and handcuffed her, bringing her back to the scene where the couple was questioned. Lucas found the kinds of questions troubling.

‘How do you know her, what relationship, they were questions that quite frankly made me feel like that they were questioning me being like the client of a prostitute,’ Lucas said. ‘He didn’t say anything ever about that, I just felt that energy from it.’

Watts was eventually let go after providing photo ID.

While the LAPD initially refused to comment on the incident, since there had been no official arrest, they have released a statement saying they are investigating.
