You may recall the huge mess that was made last September by “Django Unchained” actress Daniele Watts.
Watts and her boyfriend, Brian Lucas were reportedly engaging in lewd acts outside of CBS Studios in Studio City, CA in the plain sight of onlookers who asked them to stop before calling the police.
The couple denied any lewd acts (even though questionable photos surfaced later. Shoutout to TMZ) but further went on a media campaign that cried racial discrimination. Watts cited that she was arrested and called a prostitute in a Facebook post by the LAPD.
Given the tense climate of police race relations around that time, folks were ready to rally behind Watts and her boyfriend. That was until audio surfaced further negating Watts claims.
Watts and her boyfriend, Brian were then charged with lewd conduct. Now it has come out the actress and boyfriend have accepted a plea deal that drops their lewd conduct charge in exchange for an apology to the Los Angeles Police Department and officer involved.
