Atlanta police have released a short security camera video showing Oscar winning actress Reese Witherspoon being led out of the car in handcuffs, before a policeman takes off the handcuffs and walk her into the detention centre .
Witherspoon's husband James Toth, was pulled over for erratic driving earlier this week.
Reese Witherspoon, who was also in the car, disagreed with the decision and proceeded to argue with the patrol officer.
Actress Reese Witherspoon was arrested in Atlanta for alleged disorderly conduct after her husband was stopped by police on suspicion of drunken driving.
The 37-year-old actress was detained after she argued with officers who had taken her husband James Toth into custody in Atlanta.
Witherspoon was warned to stay inside the car but after her husband's arrest she got out and was then arrested.
According to police reports she was put in handcuffs for refusing to obey the orders of police. She reportedly asked police: "Do you know who I am?"
The couple were released from custody and scheduled to appear in court on today. However, their legal team is reportedly trying to request a later date.
