Reese Witherspoon released a statement on Sunday apologizing for the behavior that led to her arrest Friday night.
After making an appearance at the New York premiere of her new movie Mud on Sunday night, Reese, 37, released a statement explaining: ‘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 behaviour.’
In a state trooper’s report from the Friday arrest, Witherspoon is quoted as saying to one of the arresting officers: ‘Do you know my name?’
She also said: ‘You’re about to find out who I am’ and ‘You’re about to be on national news,’ according to the report.
Reese said she can’t comment further ‘out of respect’ for the pending case, and her publicist, Meredith O’Sullivan Wasson, offered no other details.
