ATLANTA, Ga. -- Police in Georgia said that actress and Nashville native Reese Witherspoon was arrested on a disorderly conduct charge after a traffic stop involving her husband in Atlanta.

A Georgia State Police incident report said that Witherspoon was arrested early Friday and charged with disorderly conduct.

The report said a state trooper observed that a car driven by Witherspoon's husband, James Toth, was failing to stay in its lane. The officer writes that Witherspoon disobeyed multiple orders to stay in the car while he performed a field sobriety test on Toth. After she refused to return the car, she was handcuffed and arrested.

The officer said that Witherspoon asked him "Do you know who I am?"

Toth was charged with driving under the influence.

A message left seeking comment wasn't immediately returned by Witherspoon's publicist, Meredith O'Sullivan Wasson.

Witherspoon graduated from Nashville's Harpeth Hall in 1994.
