While her husband Jim Toth was being arrested, Reese Witherspoon became so belligerent that cops arrested her, too. Hmm...looks like Reese Witherspoon is pioneering a new movement to prove that a couple who gets arrested together, stays together.

The 37-year-old Legally Blonde actress found herself on the wrong side of the law early Friday morning while her husband, Jim Toth, was being arrested for a DUI.

Cops said they pulled Jim's car over after he was seen weaving in and out of lanes.

Reese's hubby told cops he had only had one drink, but it must have been pretty strong, because he blew a .139 on a breathalyzer test.

While Jim was being arrested, the Oscar-winning actress apparently decided to play the celebrity card.

She first asked the officer if he knew who she was and he basically told her he didn't care.

Well, that didn't sit well with the already agitated actress, who responded with, "You're about to find out who I am ... You are going to be on national news."

Turns out, Reese was the one who ended up on national news because her behavior got so out of hand that the officers decided to arrest her, too, and she was charged with "disorderly conduct".

The two were taken to jail, booked and released around 3:30 a.m.

Are you shocked by Reese's belligerent behavior?
