ATLANTA (AP) — Police in Georgia say that actress Reese Witherspoon has been arrested on a disorderly conduct charge after a traffic stop involving her husband in Atlanta.

A Georgia State Police incident report says that Witherspoon was arrested early Friday and charged with disorderly conduct.

The report says a state trooper observed that a car driven by Witherspoon's husband, James Toth, was failing to stay in its lane. The officer writes that Witherspoon disobeyed multiple orders to stay in the car while he performed a field sobriety test on Toth. After she refused to return the car, she was handcuffed and arrested.

The officer says that Witherspoon asked him "Do you know who I am?"

Toth was charged with driving under the influence.

A message left seeking comment wasn't immediately returned by Witherspoon's publicist, Meredith O'Sullivan Wasson.
