Looks like Reese Witherspoon’s clean-cut image has just been tarnished. The actress and her husband Jim Toth were arrested for disorderly conduct yesterday.

According to US Weekly, husband Toth was swerving at the wheel which led police to stop the car and do a routine sobriety test. It was then that Witherspoon got increasing “agitated” and refused to sit in the car despite instructions to do so.

Witherspoon even played the celebrity card – telling the involved officer “Do you know who I am?” When he responded in the negative she replied ” You’re about to find our who I am.”  Yeah, I bet you’re rolling your eyes just about now, aren’t you?

The actress has now gone into damage control mode releasing a statement:

“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 was no excuse. I was disrespectful to the officer who was just doing his job. I have nothing but respect for the police and I am very sorry for my behavior.”
