Los Angeles-based actress Danielle Watts, best known for her roles as Coco in Django Unchained, says she was handcuffed and detained by police after refusing to produce ID when no charges or reasons for suspicion were clear. Her husband, who is white, says that the police gave the impression that they were investigating the couple as a possible prostitute and client.

“Today I was handcuffed and detained by two police officers from the Studio City Police Department after refusing to agree that I had done something wrong by showing affection, fully clothed, in a public place,” wrote Watts on Facebook.

The husband, Brian James Lucas, gave his account: ”From the questions that he asked me as D was already on her phone with her dad, I could tell that whoever called on us (including the officers), saw a tatted RAWKer white boy and a hot bootie shorted black girl and thought we were a H* (prostitute) & a TRICK (client).”

Lucas also posted images of Watts sobbing as police officers stand by and her hands are cuffed behind her back; and an image of what appears to be her bleeding wrist, cut as she was cuffed.

“I will continue to look any “authority figure” in the eye without fear,” she wrote. “NO POLICE OFFICER OR GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL IS MORE POWERFUL THAN ME. WE ARE EQUALS.”
