Another day, another embarrassing moment for Reese Witherspoon after her recent arrest in Georgia. As most of you already know, Reese was arrested last month outside of Atlanta for disorderly conduct during a traffic stop involving her hubby, Jim Toth.

Reese infamously told the arresting officer “Don’t you know who I am!?!” Reese is a star that usually has an impeccable reputation, so everyone was super surprised when the news of her arrest got out. However, Reese says, it was just “one of those nights.”
Reese has been very candid since her arrest, telling everyone that she does know better, and she just made a very foolish, and embarrassing mistake that night.
“I saw him arresting my husband and I literally panicked. I told him I ‘m pregnant. I’m not pregnant. I said all kinds of crazy things.” Reese said in a recent interview.
Jim Toth, who is known to get rowdy after a few drinks, was very calm during the incident, and even apologized to the officer for his wife’s behavior while he was being arrested for DUI.
Reese and Jim are both very apologetic for the entire incident and have showed a great deal of remorse since their arrest.
“It’s just completely unacceptable and we are so sorry and embarrassed… I think we made a mistake and it was something that will absolutely never happen again,” she said on GMA. “When a police officer tells you to stay in the car, you stay in the car. I learned that for sure. I was so disrespectful to him… I have police officers in my family,” Reese added. “I work with police officers every day. I know better. It’s just unacceptable.”
Reese also said the worst part of the whole incident was having to explain it to her kids, and she hopes that they will not suffer any fallout from this whole ordeal. When asked about explaining the incident to them, Reese revealed:
‘We are so embarrassed by it but we just had to tell them that when you make a mistake, you have to take responsibility. We were honest with them.’
Her kids with ex-husband Ryan Phillipe are old enough to understand, they are now ages thirteen and nine. However, her eight month old with Jim Toth is still too small to understand what is going on, so at least Reese only had to handle “the talk” with two of the three. We are sure that they will bounce back, and so will Reese, and at least she is taking credit for her mistakes and making them right again.
