Reese Witherspoon was arrested in Atlanta early last Friday morning for disorderly conduct when her husband, Jim Toth, was pulled over and failed a sobriety test.
“You are going to be on national news,” Witherspoon allegedly told a Georgia state trooper early Friday morning as she was arrested.
Witherspoon reportedly asked the officer multiple times if he knew her she was, to wish the officer replied, “No I don’t need to know your name.”
Bother Witherspoon and Toth were taken to jail, where Toth was charged with DUI and Witherspoon with disorderly conduct. The hearing for the case was scheduled for this morning where numerous media members waited outside the courtroom. The hearing was reported by local Atlanta media to have only last 5 minutes without an appearance from Witherspoon.
“Out of respect for the ongoing legal situation, I cannot comment on everything that is being reported right now. I clearly had one drink too many and I am deeply embarrassed about the things I said,” Witherspoon said. “It was definitely a scary situation, and I was frightened for my husband, but that is no excuse. I was disrespectful to the officer who was just doing his job.”
Witherspoon is currently in Atlanta filming The Good Lie.
