In an appearance on “Good Morning America” on Thursday, the Oscar winner described what happened when she and Toth were stopped while driving. “I saw him arresting my husband and I literally panicked. I told him I was pregnant. I’m not pregnant. I said all kinds of crazy things.”
Witherspoon’s outburst resulted in her arrest on a disorderly conduct charge, while Toth was arrested and charged with driving under the influence and failure to maintain the lane.
The 37-year-old said, “It’s just completely unacceptable, and we are so sorry and embarrassed. I think we made a mistake, and it was something that will absolutely never happen again.”
The actress, now starring in the movie “Mud,” was in Atlanta working on the film “The Good Lie.”
