Jim Toth feels "awful" for getting Reese Witherspoon involved in his driving under the influence arrest. The Mud actress was arrested for disorderly conduct last Friday after Jim was arrested on suspicion of DUI and her husband is overwhelmed with guilt for "dragging" his wife into the incident. A source told People: "[Jim] feels awful that he involved Reese in the situation. He made a bad decision and it certainly made things worse that he dragged her into it. [He] has to pay the consequences, bottom line. He gets that." Jim, 42, reached 1.39 on the sobriety test - over Georgia's legal limit of .08 - when he and Reese were pulled over in the early hours of the morning and it is thought their "embarrassing" incident will cause him to look at alcohol in a different way. The source added: "Jim has always been a big social drinker. A lot of his job is being social. He's out to lunch or dinner almost every day of the week, schmoozing clients and taking business meetings. [The arrest is] just going to make the two of them stop and pause, and think about maybe how much Jim's drinking plays a role in their lives - if it does or not." The couple, who have seven-month-old son Tennessee together, have been given bail until their court hearing on May 22.
