Witherspoon's arrest video hits the web

After Reese Witherspoon spoke out about her disorderly conduct arrest on "Good Morning America" today, video footage of the April 19 incident surfaced online.

The video was taken by an Atlanta police dash cam during her husband Jim Toth's DUI traffic stop. In it, Witherspoon can be seen asking the arresting officer the now-infamous question, "Do you know my name?" When he says he does not, the actress shoots back: "You're about to find out who I am."

Meanwhile, in the full video, Toth, 42, can be heard trying to ease tensions, telling the officer, "I'm sorry, I had nothing to do with that."

Lil Wayne acknowledges hurt to Emmett Till family ... but they're not buying

Lil Wayne, in a letter to the family of Emmett Till, has acknowledged the hurt he caused in a song lyric that compared his sexual prowess to the decimated body of Emmett Till, the 14-year-old whose brutal 1955 murder helped spark the U.S. civil rights movement.
