Reese Witherspoon fought the law and the law won in a much-publicized arrest for disorderly conduct in Atlanta last year. Now the Oscar-winning actress is dressing the part of the police, and taking matters into her own hands on the set of her new film.
Witherspoon and co-star Sofia Vergara were photographed in New Orleans filming the action-comedy "Don't Mess With Texas." In one shot, petite policewoman Witherspoon can be seen handcuffing the curvy "Modern Family" star next to a red Cadiallac convertible.
Witherspoon, 38, was famously caught on camera in April 2013 berating an officer who was attempting to administer a field sobriety test to the actress's husband, Jim Toth, who later plead guilty to DUI.
"I'm a U.S. citizen ... I'm allowed to stand on American ground and ask any question I want to ask," Witherspoon said at the time. The officer told Witherspoon to return to her vehicle, and in the viral soundbite heard 'round the world, Witherspoon said, "Do you know my name? You're about to find out who I am. You are going to be on national news."
She later admitted she had one too many glasses of wine and that she was sorry and embarrassed about the entire ordeal.
In an Instagram photo she posted Tuesday, Officer Witherspoon posed with another cast member on set, who was all ears.
"Don't Mess With Texas" is due in Theaters next May.
