Reese Witherspoon - Reese Witherspoon's Husband Tried To Calm Her Down Mid-arrest

Reese Witherspoon's husband Jim Toth quietly turned on her during the couple's double arrest on 19 April (13), and told the actress she should have kept quiet and let him get arrested for a Dui.

The intoxicated star lashed out at the traffic police officer who pulled her husband over in Atlanta, Georgia and angrily attempted to use her celebrity to intimidate him.

As a result of her bad behaviour, which she has now apologised for, Witherspoon was arrested. She escaped with a fine after pleading no contest to a charge of disorderly conduct.

Now, police audio and video footage released from the scene of the arrest suggests Toth tried to calm his furious wife down during a quiet moment while the officer was filling out paperwork.

The talent agent can be heard telling the actress, "All you should have done is let me get arrested... Now you've turned it into national news... It just turned really bad is all I'm saying."

Toth was also spared jail time after appearing in person to plead guilty to his Dui charge. He was sentenced to 40 hours of community service, ordered to complete an alcohol education programme and placed on 12 months' probation.
