A complaint was filed against Daniele Watts, an actress known for her roles in Django Unchained and TV shows like Partners and Weeds, for lewd conduct Monday.

In September, Watts and chef Brian James Lucas were approached by police officers, who noticed the couple were, as Lucas said on his Facebook page, “showing [their] affection publicly.” According to Lucas, the officers requested their IDs but Watts refused. She was handcuffed but released once the police were able to identify her.

The complaint says that both Watts and Lucas “did willfully and unlawfully solicit a person and persons to engage in and did engage in lewd and dissolute conduct in a public place and in a place open to the public and exposed to public view.” The two face up to six months in jail.
