An audio clip detailing the detainment of "Django Unchained" actress Daniele Watts has been released by online tabloid TMZ. Watts is heard confronting a police officer who asked for her identification after saying he was called to the area because someone reported "lewd acts in the car." The actress refused to show her ID - and questioned whether his demands were racially motivated. In the nearly three minute-long audio clip, Watts is heard becoming increasingly upset as the police officer continues asking for her ID, and at one point, she mentions her publicist and studio connections. The Los Angeles Police Department has said they are conducting an investigation into the incident.
