Daniele Watts has been ordered to perform community service after a judge refused to accept her apologies to Los Angeles police she had accused of racial profiling.

The Django Unchained actress and her boyfriend, Brian Lucas, were sentenced on August 26 to 15 hours of community labor.

Last September, police questioned Daniele Watts and Brian Lucas while investigating reports of people having s** in a car. Daniele Watts, who is black, and Brian Lucas, who is white, claimed they were profiled.

Daniele Watts and Brian Lucas later pleaded no contest to disturbing the peace and was told to write apology letters.

The Los Angeles Times says in her initial letter, Daniele Watts called a police sergeant sarcastic and dismissive. The judge said: try again.

This week, Daniele Watts apologized for what she called lack of emotional control.

However, the judge called Daniele Watts’ apologies insincere.


Daniele Watts was detained by LAPD officers on September 11, Django Unchained actress wrote on Facebook.

Daniele Watts, 33, said she had been kissing her boyfriend, Brian James Lucas, in a car.

They were sitting in a Mercedes parked on Ventura Boulevard.

DanieleWatts, who appeared in Django Unchained, is black. Brian James Lucas, a celebrity chef who specializes in raw food, is white.

Those facts are not in dispute. Other parts of the story, however, are controversial.

According to Variety: “Studio City police mistook the couple for a prostitute and john.

“Watts refused to show her ID to the cops, and was therefore handcuffed.”

In a photo Daniele Watts posted on Facebook, she is standing on a sidewalk, crying.

Afterwards she was placed in a police car.

Daniele Watts wrote: “I was sitting in that back of this cop car, filled with adrenaline, my wrist bleeding in pain.”

More than 6,500 people have liked the post, and it has been shared almost 4,000 times.

The incident strikes a chord for many people, particularly in the aftermath of Michael Brown’s death in Ferguson, Missouri.

In a statement, the LAPD say they were responding to a call about “indecent exposure”.

“Upon further investigation it was determined that no crime had been committed,” the statement reads.

“An internal complaint investigation has been initiated.”
