Watch Handcuffed Reese Witherspoon Hauled Into Atlanta Jail [Video]
Atlanta, GA — Reese Witherspoon, who was arrested with her husband on Friday, is shown on this newly released video embedded below being taken into the Atlanta City Jail in handcuffs.
The footage shows the actress then being uncuffed by a Georgia State Trooper and led into the lockup where was was booked on disorderly conduct charges. Witherspoon is in Georgia filming The Good Lie. In the video, Witherspoon appears to be calm and not combative at all.

Toth was reportedly swerving over the double yellow line before police pulled him over. The actress reportedly refused to stay in the vehicle while Toth was given a field sobriety test. This ultimately led to her arrest.
To make matters worse, she played the “don’t you know who I am?” card, which is usually leads to being placed in the back of a police cruiser and a quick trip to jail.
After she was released from police custody, the actress admitted in a statement that she had consumed a few extra adult beverages prior to being stopped by the police:
“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.”
Reese Witherspoon is due back in court on May 22; her husband has a court appearance the following day.
