37 year old Witherspoon is said to have had a quarrel with the officers following her husband’s arrest leading to her subsequent arrest on disorderly conduct. The incident happened on Friday on Peachtree Street, according to a police report. Toth is said to have been driving at the time the couple was pulled over after crossing a double line. Toth is said to have appeared disheveled and smelt of alcohol. The report also states that he failed the blood-alcohol breath test which was administered on site.
Witherspoon is said to have been told by the officers to stay inside the car but she did not adhere to the warning. Following Toth’s arrest Witherspoon is said to have gotten out of the vehicle and proceeded to have a quarrel with the officers. She allegedly said that ‘she was a U.S. citizen’ which granted her rights to ‘stand on American ground.’ The arresting officer reportedly said that Witherspoon also asked whether they knew her name to which he responded that he did not need to know her name.
Witherspoon and her husband were released at 3.30 a.m the same day and they are scheduled for court today.
