Mrs. Witherspoon began to hang out the window and say that she did not believe that I was a real police officer,” the police report read. “I told Mrs. Witherspoon to sit on her butt and be quiet.”

It continues, “Mrs. Witherspoon asked, ‘Do you know my name?’ I answered, ‘No, I don’t need to know your name.’ I then added, ‘right now.’ Mrs. Witherspoon stated, ‘You’re about to find out who I am.’”

A court appearance is scheduled for Monday at 8AM.

    There goes her girl-next-door image.

    I just read the detailed account of what she said to the officer. She is insufferable and has a sense of entitlement. Her whole public facade is crumbling. Good on Atlantab officers, if it was in LA they would have let them off the hook.

  • caro

    finally she’s not as boring as she looks but Jim ,it’s dangerous to drive drunk

  • Addie

    This is shocking and seems so out of character. Wish them well.

  • Allie

    oh wow. whos next jennifer garner?

  • Sammy

    Yikes. How embarassing…

  • :)

    She is so overrated. The fact that she is a ‘celebrity’ does NOT certainly mean she can do whatever she can. Especially behaving like a real b**** !!!

  • teri

    Don’t care much for Reese, down the road to destruction. Sound like she’s an enabler.

  • wth

    Yeah go read the entire exchange between her and the arresting officer. Vince V. said she was a tool and that is an understatement.

    And I’m sure he has driven drunk before. He just got caught this time. they both should be ashamed of themselves. People could have been killed.

  • Jo

    Hahahahaha idiots! wtf was she thinking? And obviously he is a moron~!

  • Wooo! Hooo!


    Do you know who I am?

    Police: No and I don’t give a #@*#! Get in the da#n car!

  • Kia

    She and her pr team have created this little miss sweetheart image of her. Her true colors have come out.

    Her being friends with Aniston and C.Handler makes perfect sense now. All self entitled and rude.

  • emma

    Way to make a big dramatic deal over nothing!
    She seems like the sweetest down-to-earth person, maybe she got annoyed and pissed, so what?
    I’m sure she wasn’t that abnoxious, can’t trust everything you read!

  • NYC

    We think we know these celebs but WE DON’T!!!

  • Wooo! Hooo!

    Oh yeah, they were driving a Ford Focus??? What’s wrong Reeses Pieces can’t afford a better car??

  • gghhh

    wild Southern country girl at heart just like in many of her roles she has played, LOL .Love my girl! sounds just like your night of partying turned wrong.

  • Kia


    You must be from her pr team!

    She is far from sweet. Her public persona is fake.

  • Louise

    Such an overrated actress. Reese truly is a no talent actress. Hopefully she and her husband will be punished appropriately. I am very tired of the Hollywood people being immune from punishment for breaking the law. Let’s see how Georgia law reacts to the so called entitled.

  • Wooo! Hooo!

    She wouldn’t be so sweet if she and her drunken husband had killed an innocent family in a head on collision!

    I believe everything reported due to she always have given off the little Miss Snob vibe. Plus the company she keeps is the worst, especially Handler.

    @emma: @emma:

  • ha ha

    ” Do you know my name?” LOL HAHAHAHA well done officer well done!

  • katie

    well well well

  • Me.Phillippe (Spanish)

    Just missed that Reese will scream ‘I won an Oscar’! And the sad part is that she have older kids and a baby I guess I would be waiting at the hotel and she getting drunk ….LOL

  • Lexy

    Aren’t they parents of a newborn baby boy? WTF?? All that money and can’t even grab a cab huh? Nice parents

  • Kitty

    She’s a sweet heart, don’t trust that cop he is unprofessional. “Sit your butt down and be quiet” really? All he had to do is show his badge. They’re grown ups not children. Do your job and don’t chastise people.

  • L

    This is hilarious for some reason.

  • CRM619

    I am very disappointed to hear this…. Wow, I hope they don’t get off easy! Again, celebrities who think they are above the law!

  • ha ha

    @Kitty: shut up moron!

  • wth


    and here comes the SPIN..

    I bet Lindsey and others would love for you to defend them. How is Reese any different then anyone else.. She was wrong. And of course people like you are trying already to say that the cop is lying. or the facts are wrong.

    he was driving on the wrong side of road. Could have killed someone Reese should be on her knees thanking the police for stopping their dumbasses before they killed themselves or some INNOCENT driver. Happens everyday. she was WRONG.. nothing to spin or defend. She was wrong. Liking her acting/movies doesn’t make her hands off when she is wrong.

  • Really??

    Umm I don’t know where you are from but when people are drunk and/or unruly, you will get this kind of language from a cop. Check out cops…..Because if you’re acting like a child (especially when you’re resisting arrest) you will be treated like a child.


  • Candice

    Never would have happened if she was still married to Ryan Phillippe. Oh Reese Witherspoon, what has happened to your life. :(

  • Sean

    @Addie: You wish them well? I wish someone would throw the book at them. Driving Drunk is an absolutely selfish and dangerous crime. You endanger your own life and the lives of everyone else on the road with you. They need HARSH penalties to be levied at these morons on the FIRST offense.

  • Sean

    @emma: Emma maybe if you lost someone you love to a drunk driver you’d change your mind that this was just “nothing”. They need HARSH HARSH penalties for the first offense of this crime. Maybe then people would think twice before doing it.

  • Journalistic

    LOL …I think most people already knew she that is not the America’s Sweetheart her people portray her as; she’s a well known c**t and this will, hopefully, her demure fall from grace. Shame on them.

  • Asdfg

    I love how celebrities think their so above everyone else! LOL

    “Do you know who I am?”

    How many times have we heard celebrities say this? Too many times too count!


  • NYC

    Jim obviously made a huge mistake and may need to consider he has a drinking problem. Good thing there wasn’t an accident.
    As for Reese, I can totally imagine her attitude.

  • Livin’ the Life

    They both have a drinking problem. You remember when Reese “fell down” and hurt herself ? it was before she got pregnant. You remember that car accident she had on another occasion, in her neighborhood? Reese is a drunk and she has been for years. She is attracted to drunks. Ryan is a drunk and a pothead, and now Jim Toth. She is fine for a while, then she gets “carried away.” They didn’t breathalize her because she wasn’t the driver. The only think she got was a disorderly. They were being nice. She could have gotten drunk & disorderly and interferring with a policeofficer. This is inexcusable. Drunk Drivers kill people. They are both entitled pieces of excrement. Both of them are mean drunks, too. Toth certainly is.

  • sofunny

    Really KItty? She is full of herself. She should keep her mouth shut. Such a sense of entittlement. What bad role parents for their children and the baby her nanny takes care of. She needs to stop worrying about traveling with her friends and husband, getting her pic taken by paps and re-think the life that she is leading. What a bit@R.

  • SunnyAutumn

    “You don’t tell me to sit my butt down. I’m a celebrity. I make more in a week than you will make in a life time, you cop.” She must ha’ve been buzzed out of her mind, lil hillbilly twat.

  • keeping it real

    Reese better wake up just because paps follow her around does not make her better than others. Can’t wait for the mugshots.

  • keeping it real

    Just because Hollywood overpays you butt does not make you Reese Witherspoon better than others.

  • an opinion

    @emma: Stop reading puff pieces and read articles about how she is rude to a lot of hard working people not just these cops.

  • Oh Wow

    The late night shows are going to have a field day with this tomorrow night. I can hear the jokes now starting out with:

    Do you know my name???

    or this gem

    she “stated that she was a ‘US citizen’ and that she was allowed to ‘stand on American ground.’”

  • Oh Wow

    Hey maybe Ford will give them an endorsement deal!

  • Ava

    Not to judge but she is friends with Chelsea Handler…that says alot. I’m sure jennifer anniston isn’t as “sweet” either. All drunk a**es. It upsets me bc someone could’ve been killed by her husband’s “driving”.

  • Pattycake

    @Addie: Not out of character at all. This could have happened at almost any time since they’ve been together. Including when she was pregnant. They both like to drink. A lot. As well as imbibe other things.

  • Not


  • Honestly

    I never bought her sweet, southern girl act. She always comes off as very self-entitled and bitchy. She should have just stayed in the car and kept her mouth shut. She made the situation as bad as it was even worse.

  • coco

    I don’t think she feels entitled, I think she was just drunk.
    They had a night out without the kids, had a few drinks and then acted immaturely, but they’re not criminals for this.

    Hey,the ‘character’ that we THINK these people carry is only that which they transmit to us electronically via the media. Don’t be naïve. They all put their pants on one leg at a time…or in Reese’s case, one panty hole at a time. Almost all of them are arrogant, self-promoting lemmings.
