Reese Witherspoon on Arrest: 'We Know Better'

Reese Witherspoon has given her first public interview since being arrested for disorderly conduct while her husband Jim Toth was arrested for DUI on Thursday (May 2) on Good Morning America in New York City.

“I saw [the cop] arresting my husband and I literally panicked,” the 37-year-old Mud star explained. “I told him I was pregnant. I’m not pregnant. I said all kinds of crazy things.”

“We went out to dinner in Atlanta and we had one too many glasses of wine. We thought we were fine to drive and we absolutely were not…We know better and we shouldn’t have done that.”

“I was so disrespectful to him,” Reese admitted about her arresting officer. “I have police officers in my family. I work with police officers every day. I know better. It’s just unacceptable.”

Reese also explained what it was like telling her children, Ava, 13, and Deacon, 8, about the incident. “We have to say when you make a mistake you take responsibility and we are taking responsibility and doing everything in our power to make it right.”
