Actress Reese Witherspoon recalls that she panicked and said "crazy things" the night she was arrested in Atlanta on a disorderly conduct charge.

During an interview on ABC's "Good Morning America," Witherspoon repeatedly apologized for her behavior during the April 19 traffic stop. A police report states that Witherspoon asked a Georgia state trooper, "Do you know my name?" and added, "You're about to find out who I am."

In Thursday's interview, the Oscar-winning actress said she had "no idea what I was saying that night." She said she had "one too many" glasses of wine, and panicked after she and her husband were pulled over.

"I saw him arresting my husband and I literally panicked," Witherspoon said. "I told him I was pregnant. I'm not pregnant. I said all kinds of crazy things."

Clearly ashamed of her behavior, the 37-year-old star added, "It's just completely unacceptable and we are so sorry and embarrassed. I think we made a mistake and it was something that will absolutely never happen again."

Witherspoon faces a May 22 court hearing. Her husband, Hollywood agent Jim Toth, was charged with drunken driving and is due in court May 23.
