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