Well, what have we HERE? Miss Holier-Than-Thou-Perfect-Blonde-Reese Witherspoon (now brunette for a film) seems to be in trouble with The Law. It also seems she has quite a mouth on her when confronted by the po-po.
**UPDATE – Reese’s Mugshot**
Get a load of THIS via Variety.com:
Reese Witherspoon and her husband, CAA agent James Toth, were arrested and briefly jailed early Friday morning in Atlanta, Ga., after he was pulled over under suspicion of driving while intoxicated, confirmed an official at the city’s Dept. of Corrections.
…Toth was pulled over after midnight Friday driving a silver 2013 Ford Focus, which the officer witnessed weaving across a double line on Atlanta’s Peachtree St. Toth appeared disheveled and his breath smelled of alcohol, according to the police report, prompting the officer to administer a sobriety test.
As Toth walked in the Walgreens parking lot where the officer instructed him to pull over to, Witherspoon became increasingly agitated from the vehicle, which prompted the officer to warn her to stay in the car for the sake of her own safety.
“Mrs. Witherspoon began to hang out the window and say that she did not believe that I was a real police officer,” according to the police report. “I told Mrs. Witherspoon to sit on her butt and be quiet.”
Once Toth was placed under arrest, Witherspoon 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.’”
The officer then detailed how she resisted as he grabbed her arms to arrest as Toth attempted to calm her down.
As the report details, “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.”
The report also specified, “Mrs. Witherspoon also stated, ‘You are going to be on national news.’ I advised Mrs. Witherspoon that was fine.”
Oh. Gurrrrl. You pulled the “Don’t you know who I AM?” card? According to US Magazine, you were THRILLED to be a brunette for your new movie (ahem), “The Good Lie“–filming in Atlanta, because (and I quote):
“It’s great to be brunette,” Witherspoon said at the time. “Nobody knows who I am. Everybody walks right past me. It’s a nice reprieve from my normal self.“
Oh, Reese. Nice try.
