So cops think if a white man is with a black woman…she MUST be selling it? SMH.
Police Wrongfully Detain Actress, Assume She’s A Prostitute
Dish Nation has learned EXCLUSIVELY that Martin Lawrence’s TV daughter on the FX series “Partners” was roughed up by Los Angeles police who mistakenly thought the actress was a prostitute.
Cops in Studio City assumed Daniele Watts, who also appeared in the Academy Award-winning film “Django Unchained,” was soliciting a man who she was kissing in public. The man, Chef Brian James Lucas, just happens to be her husband.
An angry Lucas ranted on Facebook that he and Daniele were just “showing our affection publicly” when police accused Daniele of being a “ho” and him of being her “trick.”
James explained in his post from today that police panicked when they saw a “white boy and a hot bootie shorted black girl and thought we were a HO (prostitute) & a TRICK (client).”
“So they handcuffed her and threw her roughly into the back of the cop car until they could figure out who she was. In the process of handcuffing her, they cut her wrist, which was truly NOT COOL!!! Of course, they had to let her go eventually cuz we weren’t a threat to anyone.”
Cops eventually let the couple go, but they’re “pissed off and humiliated,” says a friend.
“They weren’t expecting D (Daniele) to be so intelligent and outspoken, and left truly feeling the fear vibration finding out that they had just fu**** with 2 celebrities (Celebrated People).”
How messed up! At least she left the situation unharmed and without an arrest.
