Reese Witherspoon's embarrassing arrest footage is leaked to TMZ, showing THAT 'don't you know my name?!' comment - VIDEO

Reese Witherspoon will be squirming in shame this morning as footage from her embarrassing drunken arrest has emerged on TMZ.

The footage shows the 37-year-old arguing with the police officer about being an American citizen before throwing down that awkward, 'don't you know my name?!' line.

Reese's husband, Jim Toth can be seen being arrested, before Reese gets out of the car claiming she's pregnant and needs to use the bathroom - which she now admits was a lie.

She then decides to try and stop the officer arresting Jim, using a string of bizarre comments about her rights.

The initial conversation goes like this:

Reese: "I'm an American citizen ... I'm allowed to stand on American ground."
Reese: "You better not arrest me."
Reese: "I'm being anti-American?"
Officer: "Yes, please sit down."
Reese: "Wow!"
Reese: "You're harassing me as an American citizen"

The officer then arrests her for being drunk and disorderly, to which she comes out with THIS corker:

Reese: "I have done nothing against the law."
Officer: "Yes you did, you didn't obey my orders."
Reese: "I have to obey your orders now?!"
Reese: "I'm now being arrested and handcuffed?"

The whole things ends with Reese being escorted into the police car, where she can be overheard throwing down that awkward entitlement comment:

Reese: "Do you know my name sir?"
Officer: "Don't need to know."
Reese "You don't need to know my name?"
Officer: "Not quite yet."
Reese: "You're about to find out who I am!"

Reese was arrested two weeks ago and later released an apology following her behaviour, stating that she had clearly "had one drink too many".

She said: "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 was no excuse.

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