TMZ – The arrests went down in Atlanta early Friday morning. Cops say they spotted Reese and her husband Jim Toth‘s car — a silver Ford Fusion — weaving in and out of lanes, so they pulled them over. As officers dealt with Jim, Reese allegedly started acting up, telling cops, “Do you know my name?” The officer answered by saying, “No, I don’t need to know your name.” Witherspoon then came back with, “You’re about to find out who I am … You are going to be on national news.” During Jim’s arrest, Reese allegedly became ornery, demonstrating visual and verbal frustration over how long it was taking to arrest her husband. At one point, she got out of her car and the officer ordered her back inside. When she got out a second time, he arrested her for disorderly conduct, a municipal ordinance.
Can’t really be mad at Reese for trying to use her celeb cred to get out of a ticket. This is what you do when you’re famous. It’s right up there with getting moved to the front of the line, free shit, partying with other celebs, and creepy stalkers. The thing is though, when the cop has no clue who the hell you are or your doofus non-famous husband, you’re kind of shit outta luck. I know, it’s shocking that this officer of the law isn’t a ginormous Legally Blonde fan, but you can’t win ’em all. Just let your husband get arrested, bail him out at the jailhouse, and move on with your day. Now you’re the one that’s front and center. Kind of an ironic twist on that little “you are going to be on national news” bit, huh Reese?
P.S. If she was still blonde when this thing went down… zero percent chance there would’ve been an arrest.
