Today Reese Witherspoon's lawyer Bruce Morris pled no contest on her behalf for physical obstruction of another following her arrest for disorderly conduct on April 19. The Oscar winner has to pay a $213 fine ... and that's it.
Witherspoon's husband Jim Toth was present in court and he pled guilty to driving under the influence. Toth won't have to serve any time in jail, but he will be on probation for 12 months and he must perform 40 hours of community service and attend an alcohol education program.
The judge said to Toth, "Consider yourself fortunate you didn't injure your passenger [Reese] and didn't kill anyone." Wonder if he's still thinking about going to rehab?
The couple were arrested in Atlanta on Friday after Jim was pulled over on suspicion of driving while intoxicated. Jim blew a .139 on a breathalyzer test and was taken into custody, and Reese was arrested for disorderly conduct after disobeying a police officer who told her to stay inside the car.
