Every now and then a “celebrity” story will pop up in my Twitter feed…the one about actress Reese Witherspoon had me rolling my eyes.
As Variety was the first to report, police arrested Jim Toth, Witherspoon’s husband and an agent at CAA, for driving under the influence early Friday morning in Atlanta. His blood alcohol level was reportedly .139. As police were dealing with Toth, Witherspoon approached the officers, at which point this exchange reportedly occurred:
… Reese allegedly started acting up, telling cops, “Do you know my name?”
The officer answered by saying, “No, I don’t need to know your name.”
Witherspoon then came back with, “You’re about to find out who I am … You are going to be on national news.”
Laughable, sad, and bizarre. The Smoking Gun has more details.
