Actress Reese Witherspoon was arrested this weekend in Atlanta.
A Georgia state trooper says she got in the way of her husband's D.U.I. arrest.
Witherspoon allegedly pulled the ‘do you know who I am’ card, and told the cop he'd end up on national news for arresting her.
She's since released a statement, saying:
"Out of respect for the ongoing legal situation, I cannot comment on everything that is being reported right now. But I do want to say, I clearly had one drink too many and I am deeply embarrassed about the things I said. It was definitely a scary situation and I was frightened for my husband, but that is no excuse. I was disrespectful to the officer who was just doing his job. I have nothing but respect for the police and I'm very sorry for my behavior."
Arrest report: Witherspoon says she's an American and "allowed to stand on American ground."
