Police say protocol followed in detaining actress
LOS ANGELES- The LAPD says they followed proper protocol when an officer demanded identification from actress Daniele Watts and her boyfriend when they investigated a 911 call.
Watts claims she was unfairly handcuffed and detained when she refused to show her I-D.
The officers were responding to a report of lewd conduct in a car and thought it might be a prostitute and a john.
Both were held until it was determined no crime was committed.
Police say citizens are required to identify themselves if requested by an officer who has reasonable suspicion to believe a crime was committed.
Watts is best known for her role in "Django Unchained."
