Reese Witherspoon has admitted she incorrectly told a police officer she was pregnant when she was arrested for disorderly conduct as video emerges of what happened. Scroll down to watch what happened.

The Legally Blonde actress was arrested after a traffic stop in Georgia on April 19 and claims she "panicked" as she had had "one too many" glasses of wine.

During an interview with ABC, Witherspoon revealed she was arrested after she refused to remain in her car while her husband, Jim Toth, was given a breath test.

Video from the TMZ.com website reveals that 37-year-old Witherspoon asked a Georgia state trooper: "Do you know my name?" and added, "You're about to find out who I am."

Her husband was later charged with drunk driving and will appear in court on May 23, while Witherspoon will appear a day before to answer charges of disorderly conduct.

"There are so many lessons learned," the actress said.

"When a police officer tells you to stay in the car, you stay in the car," she said. "I learned that for sure. I learned a lot."

In a statement following the incident, Witherspoon struck a rather different tone saying: "I clearly had one drink too many and I am deeply embarrassed about the things I said.

"It was definitely a scary situation and I was frightened for my husband, but that is no excuse.

"I was disrespectful to the officer who was just doing his job. I have nothing but respect for the police and I'm very sorry for my behaviour."

The Hollywood star married her husband in 2011 and they have a son together. Witherspoon also has two children from her first husband, actor Ryan Phillippe.

She won an Oscar for her work in the 2005 film about country music star Johnny Cash, Walk The Line, in which she played his wife, June Carter Cash.
