Reese Witherspoon Faces Court Date in May

Star to appear May 22 on disorderly conduct charge. Husband set for May 23 appearance regarding DUI charge

An Atlanta Municipal Court hearing for Reese Witherspoon has been scheduled for May 22, following her disorderly conduct arrest Friday when her husband, CAA agent James Toth, was pulled over on suspicion of driving while intoxicated.

A hearing for Toth, who was arrested on DUI charges and driving in the wrong lane, has been scheduled for May 23, according to the Associated Press. A hearing had been scheduled for today but was postponed.

The actress, who did not appear in court Monday morning, on Sunday attended at a New York premiere of “Mud” and posed for pictures for photographers, but she did not speak to the press other than to issue a statement that she “clearly had one drink too many and I am deeply embarrassed about the things I said (during the traffic stop). 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.”

According to CNN, Witherspoon canceled plans to do interviews for “Mud” on Monday. She had been scheduled to appear on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” on Tuesday, but a spokeswoman for the show said Monday she was no longer on the lineup. Her publicist had no comment beyond Witherspoon’s statement.

Also according to CNN, Witherspoon’s attorney worked out an arrangement with the prosecutor so the actress could go through a pre-trial intervention program that will avoid having a conviction on her record.

Witherspoon and Toth were arrested early Friday morning and booked into a city jail, but released after posting bail. The actress had been in Atlanta working on location on the indie drama “The Good Lie.”

Toth is facing a DUI charge after driving in the wrong lane, and Witherspoon was arrested on a disorderly conduct charge, according to a police report obtained by Variety. She was handcuffed after disobeying repeated instructions from the arresting officer, with whom she verbally sparred, to stay inside the vehicle.
