Too much PDA (public display of affection) nearly landed actress Danièle Watts in jail. The Django Unchained actress and her husband, chef Brian James Lucas, were sitting in their car kissing when someone called 911 to report a prostitute and her john.
Gossip tabloid TMZ reports Watts and Lucas were having sex in the front seat with the car door open.
When police arrived, Watts refused to show her ID although Lucas complied with the police request to show his ID. Watts was handcuffed and placed in the back of a patrol unit. A photo of the September 11 incident in Studio City, Los Angeles, California, went viral on social media on Sunday.
Lucas said the officer mistook Watts as a prostitute "because he was asking me questions like, `Who is she? How do you know her? Are you together?"
TMZ obtained police audio of the incident. Watts can be heard saying "I think I'd like to identify you ... to my publicist," and, "I serve freedom and love. You guys serve detainment. That's cool."
Watts says she injured her wrist because the handcuffs were too tight. She was released at the scene and not charged.
Lucas and Watts plan to file a lawsuit. They reportedly have an "open marriage." In a caption for the top photo of her and Lucas, Watts wrote: "Some call us #transgender. Some call us #queer. Whatever we call us, It's #TIME we #Transcend."
