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.
Oscar-winning actress Reese Witherspoon pleaded no contest to a charge of disorderly conduct and paid a $100 fine after she was arrested.
Reese Witherspoon has admitted in a TV interview she panicked and said "crazy things" the night she was arrested.
Police told the Hollywood star to "sit on her butt and be quiet". But according to the official report, she didn't and was taken to custody.
