The proof is in the tape.

A police video obtained by FOX's Atlanta affiliate shows Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon being led away in handcuffs after she was arrested there on Friday.

The footage, which does not have sound, is about a minute long.

On Friday morning, the 37-year-old actress was arrested for disorderly conduct when she retaliated after her husband, talent agent Jim Toth, was busted for DUI. She reportedly became very heated, asking a state trooper: "Do you know my name?"

On Sunday, Witherspoon apologized, 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."

Witherspoon is due in court May 22. The actress canceled talk show appearances on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" and other programs this week.
