INDICE DE GALERIAS
ATLANTA (AP) — The website TMZ has posted videos from a police dashboard camera of actress Reese Witherspoon’s arrest in Atlanta on a disorderly conduct charge on the night of April 19. Her husband, Hollywood agent Jim Toth, was being given a field sobriety test following a traffic stop. Here’s a transcript of two exchanges involving Witherspoon and a Georgia state trooper, after she left the car during the test. The 37-year-old has since apologized for her behavior, saying she’s “deeply embarrassed” by what she said after having had “one drink too many.”
Trooper (looking toward a car): Ma’am, get back in that car.
Witherspoon (out of view): You know I’m so sorry.
Trooper: Ma’am, get back in that car.
Witherspoon: Can I say something?
Trooper: No ma’am, get back in that car. I’m not going to repeat myself again.
Witherspoon: I’m pregnant and I need to use the restroom.
Trooper: Ok, well I need you to get back in the car and there ain’t nowhere to use it out here. If I tell you again, I’m going to arrest you.
Witherspoon: Yes, sir.
Trooper (as Witherspoon approaches him administering test to Toth): Ma’am, what’d I just tell you to do?
Witherspoon: I’d like to know what’s going on.
Trooper: He’s under arrest. If you don’t get back in the car…
Witherspoon: I’m a U.S. citizen and I’m allowed to stand on American ground…
Trooper: Actually, you’re not allowed to do anything…
Witherspoon: …to ask any question I want to ask.
Trooper: Go ahead. Come on (moves to handcuff her).
Witherspoon: You better not arrest me.
Trooper: Yes, ma’am
Witherspoon: Are you kidding me??
Trooper: Nope. I told you.
Witherspoon: I’m an American citizen!
Trooper: I told you to get in that car and stay in there didn’t I?
Witherspoon: This is beyond!
Trooper: I told you.
Witherspoon: This is beyond! (while handcuffed, turning to yell at him) .
Trooper: You fight with me, I promise you. (inaudible)
Witherspoon: This is harassment! You’re harassing me as an American citizen! I have done nothing against the law!
Husband: Reese, can you please?
Trooper: Yes, you have. You didn’t obey my…
Witherspoon: I have to obey your orders?
Trooper: Yes, you do.
Witherspoon: No sir, I do not.
Witherspoon: Absolute nothing,
Toth: Reese, Reese.
Witherspoon: I’m now being arrested and handcuffed?? (as she’s taken out of view to the police car)
Witherspoon: Do you know my name sir?
Trooper: Don’t need to know it. (inaudible)
Witherspoon: You don’t need to know my name?
Trooper: Not quite yet…
Witherspoon: Oh really. Ok, you’re about to find out who I am.
Trooper: That’s fine. I’m not real worried about you ma’am. I done told you how things worked. You want to get out and get up in my investigation, that’s OK.
Witherspoon: Yes sir, I do.
Trooper: Well guess what. We have a law for that. It’s called obstruction.
Witherspoon: I’m obstructing your justice?
Witherspoon: I’m being anti-American?
Trooper: Yep. Go ahead and sit down. (as they approach car)
Trooper: Sit on your butt first, it’ll be a lot easier on you.
Witherspoon: Interesting….Arresting me???
Trooper (back in view) to husband: I tried.
Husband: I’m sorry.
Trooper: I absolutely 100 percent tried.
Toth: I had nothing to do with that.
Trooper: I know.
