Daniele Watts took to Facebook late last week in outrage after she was detailed on suspicion of prostitution for showing affection to her boyfriend after police caught the two in an intimate embrace.
Watts is African-American and her boyfriend, celebrity chef Brian James Lucas, is white.
"Today I was handcuffed and detained by 2 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," the actress, who stars as Martin Lawrence's daughter on FX's Partners, wrote on Facebook Thursday.
According to the official police statement, “patrol officers from North Hollywood Division responded to a radio call of indecent exposure” at the time and happened upon “two individuals that matched the description of the suspects.”
Authorities say the suspects "were briefly detained" and "upon further investigation it was determined that no crime had been committed. Ms. Watts and her companion were subsequently released."
