Reese Witherspoon may be the one apologizing for her arrest last month in Atlanta, but it appears that her husband, Jim Toth, may also owe her an apology.
In a newly released dash-cam video from the April 19 incident (during which Witherspoon and Toth were pulled over for a suspected DUI), the 37-year-old actress is seen refusing to stay in the couple's car. Witherspoon then attempts to explain her rights before she says the now-infamous line, "Do you know my name?"
But the footage also shows Toth taking a sobriety test and standing by as his famous wife is pulled away after confronting the cop. Once she is out of earshot, the 42-year-old talent agent can then be heard saying to the officer, "I had nothing to do with that." Ouch!
The duo was eventually briefly jailed -- Toth for a DUI, Witherspoon for disorderly conduct. Toth reportedly pled guilty to the DUI and was sentenced to a year's probation, 40 hours of community service, and alcohol education. Witherspoon allegedly pled no contest and will pay a $213 fine.
On Thursday, the actress made a mea culpa appearance on "Good Morning America," explaining that she and her husband had had "one too many glasses of wine" and should have known better than to drive afterward. "We made a mistake, and it was something that will absolutely never happen again," Witherspoon said.
Witherspoon admitted that she had been "disrespectful" to the arresting officer but that she "panicked" upon seeing him cuffing her husband. "I said all kinds of crazy things. I said I was pregnant," she explained, a moment that was also caught on the dash-cam video.
The couple has been married since March 2011 and recently welcomed a son, Tennessee, in September 2012. Witherspoon, who also has two older kids from her previous marriage to Ryan Phillippe, said that telling her children was the hardest part of the whole ordeal.
"And we are taking responsibility and doing everything in our power to make it right," she said. "You just have to be honest with them."
