    Really, I hadn't heard that one isn't required to show ID. I guess that doesn't include traffic stops. Or are those voluntary as well?

    When you're operating a motor vehicle, you're required to show ID. Otherwise, you're not, but if you don't, the police can detain you until they can identify you without your cooperation

    If the description was a petite black woman with a blonde haired white man, what are the odds that another couple in that area fit that description??

    You make this sound like a bad thing.
    Man...if my business meetings ended like this one apparently did, I'd have kept my company chugging along for a few more years.

    Appears that this is the new go to. When police are called to check out a potential black suspect and (correctly) ask for ID, the black individual refuses and is detained for further questioning and claims racism. There have been quite a few stories like this over the past few weeks. This could have all been avoided had she just shown the ID.

    BTW, the witneses have now come out and said they were actually doing more than just making out in the car.


    One, under most law, you must "identify" yourself when asked by a police officer, you must also comply with all "reasonable" requests.

    Two, she may quantify her actions as "showing affection" but it is a court of law that defines such things, not a barely known, one role actress who hasn't had decent part in more than a year.

    According to Watts, who wrote about the incident on Thursday: “Today I was handcuffed and detained by 2 police officers from the Studio City Police Department after refusing to agree that I had done something wrong by showing affection, fully clothed, in a public place.
    Is propaganda; nowhere is there any evidence that she was dealt with for "refusing to agree" on anything.

    In a just world, this celebrity wannabe would be arrested and tried for being ugly in a public place and nauseating good thinking people with yet another over-blown, stale and meritless bleating of "Racist!"

    Nice reduction and smooth playing of the race card. Congratulations, now, the party needs good propagandists, you should apply.

    Obstructing a lawful investigation is a crime pretty much everywhere.

    Why don't you tell me what the probable cause was.
