The Dash Cam Video from Reese Witherspoon's Arrest Is Pretty Awesome
Dash cam video from REESE WITHERSPOON'S arrest last month in Atlanta hit the web yesterday, and it's pretty awesome. The clip shows Reese's husband Jim Toth already in cuffs, when Reese pops into the picture and tries to get involved. By this time the cop has obviously already had enough of her, because he cuffs her and puts her in his car.
Along the way, Reese delivers some classic lines, such as . . .
"I'm a U.S. citizen. I am allowed to stand on American ground and ask any question I want to ask."
"This is beyond. This is beyond. This is harassment. I have done NOTHING against the law."
"I have to obey your orders?"
"I'm obstructing your justice? Really? I'm being anti-American? Wow . . . interesting."
But the BEST part of the video is the very end, after Reese is safely tucked away in the backseat of the squad car. Jim tells the cop, "I'm sorry. I had nothing to do with that."
And for the record, when Reese says "Do you know my name?" and "You're about to find out who I am," she's DEFINITELY trying to play the fame card. She wasn't just offering her name to be helpful. (Check out the video here.)
Meanwhile, Reese entered a plea of no contest for disorderly conduct yesterday. All she has to do is pay a $213 fine. Jim pleaded guilty to DUI, and he'll get 40 hours of community service. He also has to attend an alcohol education program and he gets 12 months of probation.
Reese Witherspoon Says She and Her Husband Had "One Too Many Glasses of Wine"
REESE WITHERSPOON apologized yesterday on "Good Morning America" for her arrest last month along with her husband in Atlanta. She said they went out to dinner and had, "one too many glasses of wine." She added that they both thought they were okay to drive but, "we absolutely were not." (Jim was the one driving. Reese was the one obstructing justice during his arrest.)
She added, "It's just completely unacceptable and we are so sorry and embarrassed and we know better and we shouldn't have done that." She said that when she saw Jim being arrested she panicked, and for some reason she even told the cop she was PREGNANT. For the record, she's not.
She said, "I have no idea what I was saying that night. I said all kinds of crazy things, I was so disrespectful to [the officer]." (Check out video here.)
