The Talk of Tinseltown
Don't Drink + Drive


Reese Witherspoon and her husband Jim Toth were both arrested on Friday. Jim was reportedly driving in the wrong lane and weaving all over the road. He was pulled over and placed under arrest for DUI. Reese hopped out of the car and argued with police. She even shouted, "Do you know who I am?" She was then arrested for disorderly conduct.

Reese has now released a statement saying she'd had one drink too many and is embarrassed by her behavior. Jim's blood alcohol content was well over the legal limit. Hello, you're rich. Why not hire a driver for nights like this? Rich or not, drinking and driving is dangerous. Call a cab. Call a friend. Don't leave. You know... don't drive.


Sportscaster Al Michaels was also arrested on suspicion of DUI this weekend after officers spotted him making an illegal u-turn. Let's try this again. If you're going to drink, get yourself a designated driver.


Todd Harrell of the band 3 Doors Down was arrested this weekend for vehicular homicide. He was under the influence of drugs and alcohol when he hit a truck in Nashville. The other driver, who was reportedly not wearing a seat belt, was thrown from his vehicle and later died. Once again, drinking and driving are a deadly combination.


Snoop Lion had a big party this weekend in celebration of 4/20. For those who don't know, April 20th is a holiday for pot smokers. Snoop was cool when the cops had to shut things down after receiving complaints from neighbors.


Playboy Playmate Kendra Wilkinson was in a serious car accident over the weekend. She was taken to the hospital, but escaped with only minor injuries. She's recovering at home, but is said to be extremely sore.


Chrissy Amphlett, lead singer of the Divinyls, has died. Chrissy, who suffered from breast cancer and multiple sclerosis, was 53. The Australian rock band is most famous for their hit, I Touch Myself.

If I had cash, I'd hire a driver for nights out. Christ, I don't have cash and I call a cab a lot of times. Ridiculous.

I'm so disappointed in Reese!

I must live under a rock because I had no idea about Reese getting arrested before your post. It's so obnoxious to me when celebs pull the "don't you know who I am?" card. Yes, we know. No, it doesn't make you above the law. Sheesh.

I read the story about Reese and laughed how she said "Do you know my name?" and the cop was like "No, I don't and I don't need your name right now."

Drinking and driving is so dumb, especially when you have the money for a private driver. I know they want to be down to earth but let's be smart people. ATL is full of cabs too!

I'm sad about Chrissy - I loved the Divinyls.

What a nice giveaway! And I cannot believe that about Reese Witherspoon and her husband. She seems so grounded, and I didn't think she would be that irresponsible. Ugh!

I love that nasty ass song.

I am so sick and tired of celebrities and their drinking and driving. There is NO EXCUSE FOR IT.

Christina said...

Whoa. So much crazy news this weekend! What is wrong with people!? I think what Reese said to the cops was hilarious and just goes to show that she's not as down to earth as we thought. She and her husband are idiots. I lost a little respect for her.

Sooo disappointing about Reese ... especially the "Do you know who I am shit?" ... and like you said, especially considering their rich and could just pay a driver.

And, I love Snoop.

Christine Bewley said...

I love Reese, but hearing that she used the whole "Don't you know who I am?" crap is very disappointing. =(

Confession. Someone I knew recently drank and then drove. I was so disappointed and scared. It's never something to joke about, both for your sake and others.

Oh Reese. She really pulled that "Do you know who I am" line? Seriously? I thought she was so much classier than that. Then again, when drunk, everyone becomes a bit trashy don't they? Couldn't agree more-hire a driver! I hate driving, and if I had her kind of money I'd be all about a driver!

I think the best part about Reese's story is that they were in a Ford Focus...

Always Maylee said...

Oh Reese! At least she owned up to it and apologized right away. I bet she just feel completely embarrassed right now.

xo, Yi-chia

I'm just glad Reese apologized for her behavior. Maybe that was just her publicist making her, but at least she admitted to her poor behavior.

I thought Reese was pregnant?
