Actress Daniele Watts, who starred in Django Unchained and TV's Weeds, was detained and handcuffed by the LAPD in Los Angeles yesterday afternoon.

The actress, who is married to a white man, was detained by the LAPD because they wrongly thought she was a prostitute and her husband was a client.

Daniele took to Facebook shortly after she was released and posted several images of the incident, saying that she was shaken and angry by the incident.

Her husband, Brian Lucas, believes that the LAPD assumed that she was a prostitute and he a john because they were publicly affectionate.

Pretty crazy stuff.
