Police detain 'Django Unchained' actress Daniele Watts in LA; mistake her for a prostitute
The LA police said that the officers detained Watts and her companion for 'involvement in indecent exposure'.

Los Angeles: A black actress who appeared in "Django Unchained" and her white companion suspect police assumed she was a prostitute when the two were only showing affection.

The Los Angeles police said Sunday that officers detained Daniele Watts and her companion 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.

Watts told KCBS-TV that she and Brian Lucas were embracing in the car Thursday.

Lucas says that he felt the officer mistook Watts as a prostitute "because he was asking me questions like, `Who is she? How do you know here? Are you together?"

Watts says she walked away and another officer put her in handcuffs and into the back of a patrol car. She was let go after police identified her.

Police say an internal investigation has been launched.
