*Geez, hopefully this is the last we’ll hear of this crazy story and equally crazy ass woman and her boyfriend involved in it.
Actress Daniele Watts, now forever known for her blink-and-you’ll -miss-it role in “Django Unchained,” has been ordered to perform community service after a judge refused to buy her so-called apologies to Los Angeles police she’d accused of racial profiling.
If you recall, Watts and Brian Lucas, a chef, pleaded no contest to disturbing the peace and were ordered to write an apology letter to the officers involved in their high-profile case. In exchange for the plea, according to the LA Times, charges of lewd conduct that had been filed against Watts and Lucas were dropped.
Well, in her “apology letter,” Watts said the sergeant involved in the encounter provoked her, describing him as sarcastic and dismissive. She signed her name with a heart, but didn’t offer a direct apology, reports the Times.
The judge said try again and in a second letter submitted this week, the Times says, Watts apologized “for my lack of emotional control” and asked for forgiveness.
The judge must’ve thought, “whatever,” and on Wednesday, Watts and Lucas were sentenced to 15 hours of community labor and 2 years on probation, the city attorney’s office confirmed.
It was a year-ago next month that Watts and Lucas initially pleaded not guilty to the lewd conduct charges and portrayed the actions that prompted the complaint to the police as a “passionate public embrace” and “extended public display of affection” which meant they got caught screwing in public.
At the time, Watts alleged that she was a victim of racial profiling, but it ended up backfiring on her as she was accused of race-baiting.
