Reese Witherspoon was arrested after arguing with a police officer who stopped her husband James Toth, on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol. The award-winning actress allegedly threatened the Georgia state trooper that he was going to be on national news after he handcuffed her for disorderly conduct at Atlanta’s Peachtree Road on Friday morning.
That didn’t stop Trooper First Class J. Pyland from arresting her with dialogue worthy of a film script. After that, Witherspoon has then issued a formal apology that includes a statement that speaks to her husband’s DUI charge.
Since then, the incident has spurred parodies on late-night TV, such as with Jimmy Kimmel and Jay Leno's shows. Watch Leno’s monologue at his show.
