(Newser) – The Internet agrees: Reese Witherspoon's dashcam arrest video is priceless. The Frisky calls it "a thing of glory," while Gawker says "it's even better than you could have expected." The AP helpfully released a transcript of the two videos floating around. (We recommend reading all the way to the end, where hubby Jim Toth throws his lovely wife under the bus.) Get the general idea here, or click through to AP for the complete transcript:

  • Trooper: Ma'am, get back in that car. I'm not going to repeat myself again.
  • Witherspoon: I'm pregnant and I need to use the restroom. [She later amusingly admitted this was not true.]

  • Witherspoon: I'm a US citizen and I'm allowed to stand on American ground...
  • Witherspoon (as she's being handcuffed): This is beyond!
  • Witherspoon: This is harassment! You're harassing me as an American citizen! I have done nothing against the law!
  • Toth: Reese, can you please?
  • Trooper: Yes, you have. You didn't obey my...
  • Witherspoon: I have to obey your orders?
  • Trooper: Yes, you do.
  • Witherspoon: No sir, I do not.
  • Toth: Reese.
  • Witherspoon: Absolute nothing.
  • Toth: Reese, Reese.
  • Witherspoon: I'm now being arrested and handcuffed?
  • Trooper: Yep.
  • Witherspoon: Do you know my name sir?
  • Trooper: Don't need to know it. (inaudible)
  • Witherspoon: You don't need to know my name?
  • Trooper: Not quite yet.
  • Witherspoon: Oh really. OK, you're about to find out who I am.
  • Trooper (to Toth, after putting Witherspoon in the police car): I tried.
  • Toth: I'm sorry.
  • Trooper: I absolutely 100% tried.
  • Toth: I had nothing to do with that.
  • Trooper: I know.

Good point. Just another over-hyped, way overrated, pompous ass , without her 'make-up'. Good job, officer. The only thing pregnant is her ego. And, shame on Laura Ingraham (guest hosting for Bill O'Reilly yesterday) for her quasi-sycophantic coddling of this mediocre talent ,and her Jerry McGuire. I thought Ingraham (a classmate @ Dartmouth) would tear her a new one. Instead, she kissed it. Yikes.

So funny, the "Do you know who I am?" says alot about who she really is as a person.

I love the "Do you know who I am"? Who gives a rats ass WHO you are..What you are is clearly evident..a self-indulgent, self-obsessed, "my dad is the guvner", spoiled out-of-control addict who THINKS that her *celebrity* title elevates her above the law and automatically entitles her to entitlement and *special* treatment. She is basically like all the rest of them DELUSIONAL and self-important. Remind me again please..what redeeming contributions has she or any of the Hollyweird crowd really given society. Really....NONE..go away Reese..WAY AWAY
