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.”


It's almost laughable at how angelic Reece looks in comparison to her soon to be ex hubby Jim Toth. Yes, I said it. I'm making a prediction that Reece and Jim Toth will only be married for 2/12 more years until things fall to crap. This is the first of many cracks to come in Their perilous future.


Not setting a good example for their kids. The real side of Reese just came out on "national news" and it wasn't the cop that should be ashamed.

someone may have not been hurt this time but drinking and driving is awful. I lost my mother to someone that was drinking and driving.. This story just makes me so angry for the poor choice they made.


No big deal. She's no saint - just defending her man (who may well turn out to be a dick, by the look of him, but she's not the first woman to fall for a dick).


Wow, I am shocked! I never thought Reese Witherspoon would ever get arrested...but I guess I was wrong. She seemed like one of those celebrities that was more humble and down to earth...but I guess I am wrong


Its amazing to me how respectful people get.when they sober up! You were right Ms Witherspoon the cop is on the news...right along with you. Since your famous and wealthy maybe next time you could take a limo or cab..Save some people from potential injury or death. It's not just your mouth....its also your husband driving drunk.


Of all the celebrities in all of Hollywood,I never would've thought that Reece Witherspoon would be the one to go off the rails....she seemed to have such a good head on her shoulders.oh well, I guess you really can never know about a person....I wonder how long this marriage is going to last? All it takes is one good clusterfuck for everything to go straight to hell.


Maybe next time she will keep her ugly mouth shut..
