Hollywood couple Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth were arrested and jailed early Friday morning in Atlanta for an alleged DUI and disorderly conduct, E! News confirms.
According to the police report obtained by Variety, who first broke the story, Witherspoon’s agent husband was pulled over under suspicion of driving while intoxicated after weaving across a double line. Meanwhile, the actress was arrested for disorderly conduct. Reese Witherspoon was handcuffed after disobeying repeated instruction from the arresting officer to stay inside the vehicle:
Mrs. Witherspoon began to hang out the window and say that she did not believe that I was a real police officer. I told Mrs. Witherspoon to sit on her butt and be quiet. Mrs. Witherspoon asked, “Do you know my name?”ADVERTISEMENT
I answered, “No, I don’t need to know your name”. Mrs. Witherspoon stated, “You’re about to find out who I am”.
The pair was released on bond around 3:30am on Friday, and a court appearance is scheduled for Monday at 8am in Atlanta Municipal Court, but Witherspoon and Toth reportedly aren’t expected to appear, and their attorney is expected to request that the court date be postponed.
Their camp was not immediately available for comment.
Oh, Reese. The law isn’t something to be fooling around with!
