The “Django Unchained” actress and beau Brian Lucas now have until Aug. 26 to submit revised letters after a judge and prosecutors rejected drafts submitted this week as part of their May plea deal.
“I’m glad they have to do a rewrite. No more excuses. She needs to say she was immature and she messed up and that she apologizes for creating the whole conflict,” arresting officer Jim Parker, now retired from the Los Angeles Police Department.
If you recall, the high-profile case started when someone called 911 saying the couple was having sex in a car on a Los Angeles street and Watts refused to show her identification to responding officers.
After the video of the arrest leaked and it was determined that it wasn't racist, Watts and Lucas eventually pleaded no contest to disturbing the peace.
After pleading no contest to disturbance charges, Watts was ordered to apologize to the neighbors who reported the incident, and the police who were accused of racial profiling.
However, Watts and Lucas merely apologized to the police officer for disturbing 'your carefree coffee break' and thanked him for giving them the opportunity to shine a light on racial profiling.
The couple’s rejected apology letters also accused Parker of speaking “sarcastically” and criticized witnesses for being overly judgmental.
And now, they have been ordered to re-write it
