Reese Witherspoon
ARRESTED
Do You Know Who I Am?
Exclusive Details
0421_jim_toth_reese_witherspoon_gettyReese Witherspoon was arrested for disorderly conduct after she allegedly got into a war of words with a police officer during her husband's DUI arrest in Atlanta on Friday night.

According to our sources, Reese started talking back to the officer who was arresting her husband, Jim Toth. Our sources say Reese was particularly annoyed at how long the arrest was taking.

We're told the officer told her twice not to get out of her car ... but she did anyway ... so he busted her.

According to Variety, as the officer was arresting Witherspoon, she shouted, "Do you know my name?" When the officer said he did not, Witherspoon responded, "You're about to find out who I am."

Variety also reports that Toth's blood alcohol level was .139.

The couple was released on bond. 

Reese is in Atlanta shooting a new movie, "The Good Lie."

Updated on TMZ sunday night:


9:40 PM PT-- Reese has just released a statement, saying,

"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 was no excuse. I was disrespectful to the officer who was just doing his job. I have nothing but respect for the police and I am very sorry for my behavior."

Well, I guess no one's above the law, even her. Hope it all works out for them.

She is about the LAST person I would expect to pull the "Don't you know who I am?" thang. She must have been seriously pissed off. She is usually so genteel and laid back, or so it appears. When you piss a Southern belle off, there is no telling what is going to come out of her mouth.

On a personal note, I do have sympathy. I know what it is like to deal with people who do not seem to have one ounce of consideration and be thisclose to losing it. Then, if you eventually do lose it, they look and you and say, "See? See? This is what I'm dealing with!", when they themselves spent the devil's own time goading you into getting bitchy and antagonistic.

I really don't think that's her natural, instinctive way of dealing with problems.
