Reese Witherspoon’s arrest video is nothing short of a hot mess. The normally composed, experienced actress is definitely out of sorts in the clip, and proves that she probably deserved a little trip downtown.
Ever wish you had a magic wand so you could simply erase a night from history? I think Reese might give just about anything to take back the night she tried to pull the “do you know who I am” card. Simply embarrassing.
Her husband was cuffed and basically patiently being arrested. All of a sudden Reese comes into the frame and starts to give the cop a piece of her mind.
She keeps repeating hilarious lines. One of her favorite is “I’m an American citizen,” and she even mutter something about being on “American soil.”
What makes it great is that the officer is obviously Southern, and probably gets a real kick out of getting to arrest someone who is so full of themselves — even if it was only in a drunken blur.
Reese starts off WAY on the wrong foot, by basically telling the officer that she can “ask any question (she) wants to ask.”
Let’s just say that’s the wrong attitude to have when you have already been commanded to stay in the car.
She goes on to say it was harassment and of course, she denies being told to stay in the car. At that point, it flies off the handle and she is cuffed. He then tells her that the one thing she did that was against the law was failing to “obey” his orders.
Once she pulls the “you’re about to find out who I am” nonsense, he says the best line of the video:
“That’s fine, I’m not real worried about you ma’am. I done told you how things work”
It is topped off by her husband actually apologizing for her behavior and then saying “I had nothing to do with that.”
Wow, way to sell your wife out down the river. Sheesh.
Check out the Reese Witherspoon arrest video below. Wasn’t she a hot mess? By the way, she has owned up and admitted that it was done in poor judgement and says she has respect for law enforcement.
