Hollywood magazine, Variety, reported on Sunday that Reese Witherspoon the Oscar-winning actress was arrested early on Friday for disorderly conduct and quarrelling with officers who had taken her husband into custody for DUI.

According to Variety, James Toth, Witherspoon’s husband was stopped on Peachtree Street on suspicions of DUI. Toth appeared unkempt and he smelled heavily of alcohol. Subsequently, he failed a blood-alcohol breath test.


While Toth was taken into custody, Witherspoon started protesting. Even though she was asked by the police to stay inside the car, she got out and began quarrelling.

According to Variety, after getting out of the car, she said that she was a U.S. citizen and had a right to stand on American soil.

Variety cited the account of the police officer who arrested Witherspoon for disorderly conduct as mentioning: “Mrs. Witherspoon asked, ‘Do you know my name?’ I answered, ‘No, I don’t need to know your name.’ I then added, ‘right now.’”
