Reese Witherspoon arrested - report

22 April 2013, 07:45

Los Angeles - Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon was arrested for disorderly conduct in the US state of Georgia after authorities detained her husband for drunk driving, US media reported on Sunday.

While cops questioned her husband Jim Toth after seeing the couple's car swerving early on Friday, the actress allegedly did not make any new friends.

Entertainment news website TMZ reported she started acting up, asking "Do you know my name?"

An officer answered by saying, "No, I don't need to know your name," to which the 37-year-old reportedly shot back: "You're about to find out who I am (...) You are going to be on national news."

Booked and released

Witherspoon, one of Hollywood's highest paid stars with a reputation as being something of a straight arrow, also became "verbal" and "ornery" at the amount of time police were taking with her husband, according to TMZ.

Both the actress, famous for her huge Legally Blonde hits, and her spouse were taken to jail, booked and released, TMZ said.

Witherspoon, in Georgia to film a new movie, won the best actress Academy Award for 2005's Walk the Line.
