Of all the people we would expect to get arrested in Hollywood (we won’t name any names here) Reese Witherspoon would definitely never have been one of them. She always seems so squeaky clean!
But over the weekend, Reese proved us wrong when both her and her husband, Jim Toth [above left] were picked up by the police whilst they were driving in LA. The couple were pulled over and Reese was arrested for disorderly conduct whilst Jim failed a sobriety test.
Now here’s the best part. According to the police report, the Oscar-winning actress became quite agitated when the officer went to arrest her and said to him (wait for it) ‘Do you know my name? You’re about to find out who I am’. Seriously Reese, you played the don’t you know who I am card? WITH A POLICE OFFICER?
Reese isn’t the first person to shock us by getting arrested, of course. Just check out these other surprising offenders and their matching mug shots…
1. Hugh Grant
Hugh Grant kind of shattered completely obliterated that innocent English gentleman thing he had going on when he was arrested in 1995 and charged with indecent conduct with a prostitute in LA. He was even going out with Liz Hurley at the time. Oh dear.
2. Nicole Richie
Nicole Richie has been arrested not once but TWICE! Once in 2003 for heroin possession and driving with a suspended licence and once in 2006 for DUI. We’re pleased to say she’s put it all behind her now (we think).
3. Heather Locklear
And another odd one: in 2010, Heather was arrested for a hit and run - and she was also previously arrested for driving under the influence of prescription medicine. Maybe celebrities just shouldn’t be allowed in cars. Is that the answer?
4. Khloe Kardashian
Dear famous people, how about not getting drunk and getting in your car? Khloe joins a lot of other starry types who have been arrested for DUI. Perhaps she ought to hire herself a chauffeur.
5. Samantha Ronson
Samantha Ronson, who spent a lot of time going out with Lindsay Lohan (ie: Hollywood’s most arrested person ever), was picked up herself for DUI in 2009. She was apparently leaving a DJ show when the police stopped her. Oops.
But do tell: is Reese's arrest the most shocking in Hollywood ever? We'd love to know who gave your favourite mug shot...
