It’s always refreshing to see a real celebrity, like Reese Witherspoon, get in trouble for doing something stupid, like driving around drunk and then getting arrested for disorderly conduct. It makes you realize they’re normal people too, and make the same mistakes you make, except replace ‘disorderly conduct’ with ‘distributing illegal substances’ and ‘arrested’ with ‘convicted.’ You’re just like me! From TMZ:
Cops say they spotted Reese and her husband Jim Toth’s car — a silver Ford Fusion — weaving in and out of lanes, so they pulled them over.
As officers dealt with Jim, Reese allegedly started acting up, telling cops, “Do you know my name?”
The officer answered by saying, “No, I don’t need to know your name.”
Witherspoon then came back with, “You’re about to find out who I am … You are going to be on national news.”
During Jim’s arrest, Reese allegedly became ornery, demonstrating visual and verbal frustration over how long it was taking to arrest her husband.
At one point, she got out of her car and the officer ordered her back inside. When she got out a second time, he arrested her for disorderly conduct, a municipal ordinance.
They were both taken to jail, booked, and released a short time later.
A Silver Ford Fusion? I hope to God that was a rental. No wonder that cop didn’t believe her, he probably gets that shit all the time. “Do’s you see’s this Chevy Malibu Ahhhh-ficer? Ah’m Liz Taylor… Dead???!!! Then Ah’m that English Queen. *In British Accent* Do’s ya know who I am Guv’nor? Unhand me! Guards!” *Gets Tazed*
