Reese Witherspoon Arrested for Disorderly Conduct, Husband for DUI

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Reese Witherspoon acted like anything but America's Sweetheart to police in Atlanta early Friday, as both the actress and husband Jim Toth were arrested during a traffic stop.

Sources tell TMZ officers pulled over the couple's Ford Fusion because it was weaving in and out of lanes.

As the cops spoke to Jim, Reese played the fame card, reportedly, telling them: "You're about to find out who I am ... You are going to be on national news."

While Toth was booked for drunk driving - allegedly blowing a .139 on a Breathalyzer - the Oscar winner grew visibly frustrated with the ordeal.

She reportedly got out her car on multiple occasions and was eventually arrested for disorderly conduct as a result.

Jim and Reese were both taken into custody and released a short while later.

The police report describes Jim's eye lids as "droopy" and his eyes as "blood shot and watery."

The officer on the scene also detected a "strong odor" of alcohol emanating from Toth.

UPDATE: Witherspoon apologized in the following statement:

“Out of respect for the ongoing legal situation, I cannot comment on everything that is being reported right now."

"But I do want to say, I clearly had one drink too many and I am deeply embarrassed about the things I 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."

"I have nothing but respect for the police and I’m very sorry for my behavior.”

Yah - honesty's really a good quality; maybe she should go into politics.

If any person regardless of theis social status chooses to drink they should call a taxi. I guess this famous actress thought she and her husband could get away with it. I'm glad they didn't. Thumbs up for the police officers.

So what she got arrested for something so stupid. That's not bad. Give the girl a break. She's a good person. At least she isn't like some of these other female out there.

I hate that she was arrested. I hope that she does well.

I have a feeling that (somewhere) Reese's ex-husband Ryan Phillippe and Ryan's girlfriend of the moment are both laughing their asses off over this. Just a thought..........
