Reese Witherspoon learned first hand that even celebrities have to shut up sometimes. Last week Witherspoon and her husband Jim Toth were pulled over for weaving in and out of traffic intoxicated. The actress—who was in Georgia filming her next movie The Good Lie—landed behind bars with her husband after showing erratic behavior toward the officers.
The Oscar-Winning actress pulled her celebrity card and yelled “Do you know my name?!” as her husband was getting arrested. She became more irate when the officer admitted to not knowing who she was.
Reese promised officer Pyland that his name would make national news and in good faith he did. Reese was charged with interfering with her husbands arrest and disorderly conduct, but the crazed duo was released the next morning (Apr 20).
After sobering up, the actress apologized for her actions, “I clearly had one drink too many and I am deeply embarrassed about the things I said.”
The court date is set for today (Apr 22).
