Daniele Watts, the Django Unchained actress who was arrested last year for having public sex with her boyfriend, has been ordered to apologize to the arresting officer for calling him a racist.
Watts this week struck a plea deal with prosecutors, who had charged her with lewd conduct and disturbing the peace. In exchange for pleading no contest to the latter charge and apologizing to LAPD sergeant Jim Parker plus two other officers, the lewd conduct charge was dropped.
As ENTmania! reported last September, Watts and her boyfriend were spotted by some office workers near CBS Studios in San Fernando Valley having sex in their open car. The workers called police … and when the responding Parker politely asked for her ID, Watts suddenly turned hysterical, pulling the celebrity card and accusing him of targeting her because she is a black who has a white boyfriend.
When she refused to cooperate, she was handcuffed and booked at the police station. She then went on Facebook to declare that she had been racially maltreated by a cop for showing ‘public affection … while clothed’ to her white BF. Later on, a widely-circulated audio surfaced, showing that Watts was in fact, the one squarely at fault.
In addition to the written apology, Watts and her boyfriend were each sentenced to 40 days community service.
