LATEST: Actress Regina King has lashed out at New Orleans, America police after they arrested her pal Jamie Foxx in a club last weekend (26APR03).

The ENEMY OF THE STATE star claims funnyman Foxx's arrest - for failing to co-operate with police and fighting with them - was a joke.

Police claim Foxx refused to show his ID and then fought with officers when they asked him to leave HARRAH'S casino.

King states police were not in uniform, they never identified themselves as officers and they didn't ask him for his ID or to leave the casino.

She says, "That's New Orleans. It's just a corrupt lil' city."
