Reese Witherspoon ‘embarrassed’ by arrest; hearing set

A court hearing on a disorderly conduct charge is scheduled for actress Reese Witherspoon, who said she’s “deeply embarrassed” by what she said to a state trooper during a traffic stop in Atlanta.

Atlanta Municipal Court records show Witherspoon’s case was scheduled for a Monday morning hearing. She was arrested Friday.

The Oscar-winning actress released a statement late Sunday apologizing for her behavior to police when her husband, Hollywood agent Jim Toth, was arrested and accused of driving under the influence of alcohol.

“Do you know my name?” Witherspoon is quoted as saying in a state trooper’s report. She also said: “You’re about to find out who I am,” according to the report.

The actress isn’t required to appear at the hearing. She was in New York on Sunday night.
