UPDATES MONDAY A.M.: Reese Witherspoon released the following statement regarding her alcohol-fueled incident in Atlanta Friday morning: "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."
In Atlanta on Monday morning, the judge in Jim Toth's DUI charge hearing allowed cameras in the courtroom. The judge told Toth's attorney that his court date is set for May 27. The attorney left the courtroom, saying "no comment" to all media.
Academy Award winning actress Reese Witherspoon was arrested and jailed along with husband Jim Toth Friday morning in Atlanta, Georgia, when a police officer observed Toth weaving outside of his lane in traffic. Toth was arrested for DUI, while Witherspoon was handcuffed and arrested for alleged disorderly conduct when she refused to cooperate with law enforcement.
Variety broke the story on Sunday. Toth, 42, the co-head of motion picture talent at Creative Artists Agency (CAA), is facing a DUI charge and a second charge for failing to maintain a lane while driving, and is due in court in Atlanta on Monday at 8 a.m., but is not expected to appear. The couple was in Atlanta because Witherspoon, 37, has been shooting the indie film, "The Good Lie." Sources tell Variety that production on the film was not interrupted. Witherspoon's rep is not issuing comment.
