Police detain Django Unchained actress in LA

Los Angeles - An actress who appeared in Django Unchained said she was misidentified as a prostitute by police when she was only showing affection to her white companion.

The Los Angeles Police Department said on Sunday that officers detained Daniele Watts and her companion last week after a complaint that two people were "involved in indecent exposure" in a silver Mercedes. Watts was detained until police determined no crime was committed.

On a Facebook page that appears to be associated with the actress, Watts says she was guilty only of showing affection in public. Her companion wrote on the social media site that because she is black and he is white, onlookers assumed them to be a prostitute and client.

Police say an internal investigation has been launched. Representatives for Watts did not return calls and emails seeking comment.
