Celebrity gossip site TMZ has released the full video of Reese Witherspoon's now-notorious arrest in Atlanta on April 19, and it is as embarrassing for Witherspoon as she claims.

In it, she accuses a police officer of "harassing me as an American citizen" and challenging his authority in a minute-long tirade.

Witherspoon, who was charged with disorderly conduct, acted out when police pulled over her husband James Toth and on suspicion of driving under the influence.

Update: TMZ has obtained another video from law enforcement, this one featuring a sound byte of Witherspoon and her husband in the backseat of the police car.
