Police stopped Reese and her husband after seeing their car weaving across a double-lined street, according to Atlanta police report. The officer told Witherspoon to stay in the car while he performed a sobriety test on her husband. The actress refused to obey the orders and said she was a U.S. citizen and had the right to stand on American ground.

The officer said: “I put my hands on Mrs. Witherspoon’s arms to arrest her. She was resistant but I was able to put handcuffs on her without incident due to Mr. Toth calming her.” The actress told him: “You’re about to find out who I am. You are going to be on national news.”
