Reese Witherspoon arrested
ATLANTA, Georgia (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Legally Blonde actress Reese Witherspoon is in a bit of hot water after pulling the celebrity card failed to work with an officer in Atlanta.
The Oscar winner and her husband Jim Toth were stopped Friday after their car was spotted weaving in and out of traffic.
While her husband was getting a field sobriety test Witherspoon repeatedly questioned the officer and continued to get out of the car even after she was warned not to.
She also allegedly asked the officer if he knew who she was. When he said he didn't she reportedly replied, quote "you're about to find out."
Toth was arrested for driving under the influence while she was arrested for disorderly conduct.
Witherspoon has since released a statement saying quote "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."
She went on to say that she has nothing but respect for the officer and is very sorry for her behavior.
