Witherspoon’s Response to Arrest and Thoughts on Responsibility

The lovely Reese Witherspoon went on George Stephanopoulos and talked about her recent arrest in Atlanta, Georgia as well as her now infamous response to the arresting officer, when her husband, Jim Toth, was charged with driving under the influence.

Apparently ‘do you know who I am?’ was not the only ridiculous thing she said to the police officer according to the Examiner. She also went on to say that in her panic she announced that she was pregnant, (which she was not) as well as being disrespectful to the officer.

However Witherspoon knows how to do damage control and in her interview came off as sweet as apple pie. She apologized for her actions towards the arresting officer, owned up to her mistakes and even admitted that despite playing a lawyer in Legally Blonde she was most definitely not prepared with real life interaction with law enforcement.

The hardest part says Today News Gazette, was telling their kids what mom and dad had done. “We are doing everything in our power to make it right,” Witherspoon said on the show, and explained that they try and be honest with their children as well as teach responsibility.
