Actress arrested on disorderly conduct charge
Police say that actress Reese Witherspoon has been arrested on a disorderly conduct charge after a traffic stop involving her husband in Atlanta.
A Georgia State Police incident report says that Witherspoon was arrested early Friday and charged with disorderly conduct.
The 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 that Witherspoon asked him, "Do you know who I am?"
Toth was charged with driving under the influence.
Bassist Robert Todd Harrell of the rock band 3 Doors Down has been charged with vehicular homicide by intoxication after a crash claimed the life of another motorist in the Nashville area, police said.
The 41-year-old musician remained jailed early Sunday in connection with the fatal accident late Friday night on Interstate 40 that left 47-year-old Paul Howard Shoulders Jr. dead, the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department said.
A police statement said a preliminary investigation showed that Harrell was driving west at a high rate of speed in the Nashville suburb of Hermitage when his car clipped a pickup truck driven by Shoulders. Police said the pickup then went out of control, struck a guardrail, went down an embankment and overturned. Shoulders was ejected.
Authorities said Harrell's car hit a retaining wall and stopped about a quarter mile away.
A song specially written to be sung by the nation to the Netherlands' new king on the day of his inauguration has been "withdrawn" by its producer after it triggered a storm of online criticism and ridicule, a government committee confirmed Sunday.
The song that was supposed to unite a nation behind its new monarch instead had the effect of dividing it into two camps; those who hated the song and those who loved it.
An online petition against the song, which was written using suggestions from the public and features a blend of Dutch rock ballad and rap styles, had been signed by more than 30,000 people Sunday. But the song clearly also had its fans as it was ranked No. 1 on the Dutch iTunes chart.
