Celebrity DUI Arrests

Posted By Attorney Robert M. Bernstein || 22-Apr-2013

Two celebrities were arrested over the weekend for DUI's. Legendary sportscaster Al Michaels was arrested, and charged with DUI in Santa Monica on Friday night. Al Michaels was released on his own recognizance Saturday morning. Michaels was arrested shortly before 10 p.m., then spent a little more than five hours in the Santa Monica City Jail. He's scheduled to appear at Los Angeles Municipal Court at 8:30 a.m. on June 26.

Oscar winning actress Reese Witherspoon was arrested and jailed for a short time in Atlanta early Friday morning. Her husband, CAA agent James Toth, was also arrested and jailed. The pair were pulled over when Toth's failure to maintain his lane was cause for suspicion of driving while intoxicated, and Witherspoon found herself handcuffed after refusing to stay in the car while the officer administered a field sobriety test on her husband. Mrs. Witherspoon began to hang out the window (of her car) and say that she did not believe that that the police officer was a real cop. The back-and-forth between Witherspoon and the officer escalated until he arrested her and put her in the rear of his vehicle. The couple were released at around 3:30 a.m. on Friday morning. A court appearance is scheduled for 8 a.m. Monday morning in Atlanta Municipal Court.
