Reese Witherspoon said Sunday she's "deeply embarrassed" about her her disorderly conduct arrest Friday, when she allegedly yelled at cops when they were busting her husband during a DUI traffic stop in Atlanta.

"I clearly had one drink too many and I am deeply embarrassed about the things I said," Witherspoon said. "It was definitely a scary situation and I was frightened for my husband, but that is no excuse. I was disrespectful to the officer who was just doing his job. I have nothing but respect for the police and I'm very sorry for my behavior."

During the stop, Witherspoon, 37, allegedly asked a state trooper, "Do you know my name?" and then added, "You're about to be on national news," according to the arrest report. She was arrested on a charge of disorderly conduct for not staying in her car when cops gave her husband a field sobriety test.

A first court hearing set for Monday was rescheduled for May 22. Her husband faces a DUI charge, and is due back in court May 23.
