On the arrivals line, longtime Clinton friend and Oscar-winner Mary Steenburgen defended the former president's controversial honor. The Defense of Marriage Act, which bars federal recognition of same-sex marriage, and the "don't ask, don't tell" military policy were adopted during the Clinton administration.
"Actually, ("don't ask, don't tell") was a sorrow for him," Steenburgen said. "So I think he's spent a large part of his life making up for that."
Police: Witherspoon arrested in Atlanta
ATLANTA — Police in Georgia say actress Reese Witherspoon was arrested early Friday on a disorderly conduct charge after a traffic stop involving her husband in Atlanta.
A Georgia State Police incident report says 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 says 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.
