Video: Reese Witherspoon to cop – “Do you know my name?”

TMZ has posted the dashcam video of Reese Witherspoon’s now famous arrest during a traffic stop last month.

Reese got in the officer’s face and annoyed him to the point that he
arrested her for disorderly conduct. Here are some of Reese’s
quotes during the incident:

Reese: “Do you know my name sir?”
Officer: “Don’t need to know.”
Reese “You don’t NEED to know my name?”
Officer: “Not quite yet.”
Reese: “YOU’RE ABOUT TO FIND OUT WHO I AM!”

Reese: “I have done nothing against the law.”
Officer: “Yes you did, you didn’t obey my orders.”
Reese: “I HAVE TO OBEY YOUR ORDERS??”

Reese: “I’m now being arrested and handcuffed??”

Reese: “I’m an American citizen … I’m allowed to stand on American ground.”

Reese: “You better not arrest me.”

Reese: “I’m being anti-American?”
Officer: “Yes, please sit down.”
Reese: “Wow!”

Reese: “You’re harassing me as an American citizen”

And the best line — “I’m obstructing your justice?”

Reese Witherspoon eventually issued an apology:

“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 is no excuse. I was disrespectful to
the officer who was just doing his job. The words I used that night
definitely do not reflect who I am. I have nothing but respect for the
police and I’m very sorry for my behavior.”
