Oscar-winning actress Reese Witherspoon was arrested on April 19 in Atlanta, Georgia for disorderly conduct. Witherspoon's husband was pulled over by police on the suspicion of driving under the influence and the actress allegedly ignored an officer's instruction to remain in her car.
Witherspoon released a statement about the incident. She said, "Out of respect for the ongoing legal situation, I cannot comment on everything that is being reported right now. But I do want to say I clearly had one drink too many and I am deeply embarrassed about the things I said. It was definitely a scary situation and I was frightened for my husband, but that was no excuse. I was disrespectful to the officer who was just doing his job. The words I used that night definitely do not reflect who I am. I have nothing but respect for the police and I am very sorry for my behavior." —XFINITY Entertainment Staff
