I wonder if Reese Witherspoon tried to channel her inner Elle Woods during her run-in with the law this weekend in Atlanta. The Legally Blonde star was arrested for disorderly conduct according to Variety.com.
Witherspoon was with her power agent husband Jim Toth when police pulled them over under the suspicion of driving while intoxicated. Reportedly, he was swerving into the wrong lane. Guess he couldn’t
drive Walk The Line. Sorry. I just had to reference Reese’s Oscar winning role in the Johnny Cash biopic. The website says he blew a .139 on a Breathalyzer test.
Once Toth was placed under arrest, the 37-year-old actress exited the vehicle and was instructed to get back in the car. According to the report, she “stated that she was a ‘US citizen’ and that she was allowed to ‘stand on American ground.’” She was then handcuffed after her disobedience.
The arresting officer’s report goes on to reveal that, “Mrs. Witherspoon asked, “Do you know my name?” I answered, “No, I don’t need to know your name.” I then added, “right now.” Mrs. Witherspoon stated, “You’re about to find out who I am.” It goes on to disclose, “Mrs. Witherspoon also stated, ‘You are going to be on national news.’ I advised Mrs. Witherspoon that was fine.” Someone was playing the celeb card, weren’t they? Oh Reese. Check out her mugshot below.
