Last Saturday, Oscar nominated actress Reese Witherspoon was spotted in LAX airport wearing a City of Atlanta Police baseball cap along with a smirky smile. This wardrobe “peace making” or “up yours” moment occurred shortly after Reese and her husband, Jim Toth, pleaded guilty on Thursday to charges filed against them by the Atlanta Police.
Early in the morning on April 19th, Atlanta police saw, Jim Toth’s silver Ford Fusion swerving in and out of lanes. They pulled him over, Reese was in the passenger’s seat, and could smell a strong odor of alcohol on their breaths, police suspected DUI.
Police began investigating Toth for DUI, having him perform the DUI field sobriety tests and blow into the DUI breath test. Witherspoon, was becoming extremely agitated, and got out of the car. The officer ordered her back into the car, of which she was compliant the first time.
However, the second time the drunk actress got out of the car, who repeatedly said she was a “U.S. citizen,” tried playing her celebrity card stating ” Do you know my name? The officer replied, ” No, I don’t need to know your name.” An irritated Reese responded with, ” You’re about to find out who I am … You are going to be on national news!” The officer quickly handcuffed and arrested her for interfering with his DUI investigation.
Both Jim and Reese were arrested and taken to the police station. Jim was charged with DUI, breathalyzer test results .139, and Reese charged with disorderly conduct.
After making public apologies for making poor decisions to drive drunk and disrespecting Atlanta police, the couple took responsibility for their actions and plead guilty to their charges.
Reese Witherspoon had to pay a $213.00 fine and her husband, pleading guilty to a DUI, was ordered to perform 40 hours of community service, attend a DUI alcohol education program, and is on probation for 12 months.
