In case you were off in some exotic island for your delayed holiday and couldn’t care less about what happened in the world lately (you’d wish!) then we’ll give you a short heads up here. Daniele Watts is a young actress who’s best known for her part in Quentin Tarantino’s western movie Django Unchained. Even though it was a minor one, her role in the movie was highly publicized. She also stared in several television series such as Partners and Weeds.

Famous for sex scandal

She was with her boyfriend, 43-year-old Lucas in her car outside CBS Studios when a witness saw them allegedly having intercourse. Even though she still says they're innocent and even accused the officers of racial profiling, proof shows a different story. Based on the Los Angeles Police Department audio and on various witnesses and photos of Watts straddling her boyfriend, the two have been charged with lewd conduct in public.

The scandal grew out of proportion the moment Watts started building quite the campaign against the LAPD accusing cops of racism for cuffing her after people complained about the couple’s gesture. The actress claims she and her boo were only making out and walked away from cops in a fury, which is why they cuffed her and brought her back.

Using Ferguson to skip prison?

The Django Unchained actress had several interviews and wrote multiple comments for newspapers stating her case should speak out for the many out there who suffer from police misconduct. Watts also wrote a statement on her own Facebook account, a week ago, in which she claims tabloids are misleading the actual facts and that people need to know their rights and have them respected by police officers.

My concern in this regard is amplified by the empathy that I feel for those who have been in similar situations, and have had no outlet to tell their stories. It has to do with my awareness of what has happened in places like Ferguson, and my desire to participate in a discussion that I feel deeply connected to. It has to do with my belief that members of law enforcement in this country could greatly benefit from the clarity that these discussions can produce.

Watts and her boyfriend Brian Lucas have been charged with one count each and are due for arraignment November 13th, a spokesman for the Los Angeles City Attorney told the Daily News Tuesday. If they found guilty, they face a maximum of six months in jail and a fine of $1,000.
