Reese Witherspoon seems like a nice enough person. Her recent arrest for disorderly conduct (along with her hubby's DUI rap) seems to have stuck most people by surprise. In wake of her April 19th arrest in Atlanta, Witherspoon recently sat down with George Stephanopoulos for a live interview on Good Morning America.

"I agree. I have no idea what I was saying that night. I saw him arresting my husband and I literally panicked. I said all kinds of crazy things. I told him I was pregnant. I'm not pregnant! I said crazy things," she said chuckling a little. "You only hear me laughing because I had no idea what I was talking about and I am so sorry. I was so disrespectful to him. I have police officers in my family. I work with police officers every day. I know better." [USA Today]

She seemed legitimately apologetic and regretful. But, that doesn't make her arrest video any less interesting. Of course it was TMZ who managed to get its hands on the dash cam footage of Witherspoon's arrest. She's seen arguing with the arresting officer and offering up pull quotes like:

"I am a U.S. citizen."

"I am allowed to stand on American ground and ask any question I want to ask."

"I am an American citizen."

"This is harrassment."

"Do you know my name, sir?"

"You're about to find out who I am."
