Witherspoon: I panicked the night of my arrest

ATLANTA (AP) — Actress Reese Witherspoon recalls that she panicked and said “crazy things” the night she was arrested in Atlanta on a disorderly conduct charge.

During an interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” Witherspoon repeatedly apologized for her behavior during the April 19 traffic stop. A police report states that Witherspoon asked a Georgia state trooper, “Do you know my name?” and added, “You’re about to find out who I am.”

In Thursday’s interview, the Oscar-winning actress said she has “no idea what I was saying that night.” She said she had “one too many” glasses of wine, and panicked after she and her husband were pulled over.

Witherspoon faces a May 22 court hearing. Her husband, Hollywood agent Jim Toth, was charged with drunken driving and is due in court May 23.
