Reese Witherspoon and her husband Jim Toth are all smiles at her son’s soccer game in Brentwood.
The couple that gets arrested together, ______________…
Reese Witherspoon poking fun at her recent disorderly conduct arrest?
The 37-year-old actress, who was jailed for disorderly conduct late last month, was spotted wearing an Atlanta Police Department hat while arriving on a flight at LAX. The actress was with her husband Jim Toth and their 8-month son Tennesseee.
Her hat read, “City of Atlanta Police.”
What do you think? Was she just being funny?
See Reese’s adorable son after the jump! (more…)
This is absolutely hilarious. “I am an American citizen!!”
Here is video of Reese Witherspoon’s arrest two weeks ago. Reese wasn’t kidding when she told GMA she was “saying all kinds of crazy things” … and TMZ has obtained the entire, unbelievably entertaining dash cam video.
Reese: “I’m being anti-American?”
Officer: “Yes, please sit down.”
Reese: “You’re harassing me as an American citizen”
And the best line — “I’m obstructing your justice?”
After Reese’s tirade, Jim actually told the cop, “I’m sorry, I had nothing to do with that!”
Reese Witherspoon gave her first post-arrest interview this morning on Good Morning America. Reese explains that before she was arrested, she was just having “one of those nights.” She goes on to explain that both she and her husband are “sorry and just so embarrassed” by the whole thing, and that they should have known better.

Looking contrite, humbled and wiser for what happened, Reese Witherspoon addressed her arrest two weeks ago at the top of her interview with Good Morning America on Wednesday – calling it “one of those nights.”
“We went out to a restaurant in Atlanta, and we had one too many glasses of wine,” the Oscar winner and mother of three, 34, said, referring to herself and her husband, agent Jim Toth. After their car, which Toth was driving, was stopped, he was charged with DUI, and she with disorderly conduct.
“We thought we were fine to drive,” she said, “and we were absolutely not, and we are so sorry and just so embarrassed.” She added, “We know better and we shouldn’t have done that.”
Blaming “poor judgment” for not simply calling a cab, Witherspoon said, “We made a mistake, and it was something that will absolutely never happen again.”
The police report noted that Witherspoon did not follow the officer’s orders and she got out of the car, and spoke in abusive language to him.
“I was so disrespectful to him,” the actress acknowledged on GMA. “I have police officers in my family. I work with police officers every day. I know better. It’s just unacceptable.” (Adding a note of levity, she also said, “I played a lawyer in a movie so many times I think I am a lawyer. And clearly I’m not a lawyer, because I got arrested.”)
She explained, “I have no idea what I was saying. That night I saw him arresting my husband, and I panicked. I said all kinds of crazy things. I said I was pregnant.” The actress flashed a look of amazement, then said, “I’m not pregnant. I said crazy things. I had no idea what I was talking about.”
Telling her older children about the very public incident, she said, was “the hardest part about it. When you make a mistake, you take responsibility, and we are taking responsibility, and we are doing everything within our power to make it right.”
Among the biggest lessons she learned, she said: “When a police officer tells you to stay in a car, you stay in a car.”
What do you think of Reese’s apology? I thought it was sincere, and part of me really feels for her. It seems like it’s something that can so easily happen. I feel like it DOES happen, too often, really. They’re just lucky no one got hurt (besides her ego).
