Nothing that happens in America should surprise anyone. Police officers all around the country have been getting criticized for their poor judgment in certain situations. LAPD is the latest department to experience an embarrassing moment.

Daniel Watts, actress, was the victim in this case. She played the role as CoCo in the movie ‘Django’.
According to accounts by Watts and her husband Brian James Lucas, two police officers mistook the couple for a prostitute and client when they were seen showing affection in public. When the officers asked Watts to produce a photo ID when questioned, she refused. Watts was subsequently handcuffed and placed in the back of a police cruiser while the officers attempted to figure out who she was. The two officers released Watts shortly afterwards.
Only in America.
