(USA TODAY) -- The first arrest footage that came out about Reese Witherspoon's April 19 arrest was benign. It showed the actress at the Atlanta Detention Center being uncuffed and led inside.

But now, new footage is out. TMZ has posted video of the star and her husband, Jim Toth, as they were handcuffed in front of a Georgia state trooper's car.

Trooper First Class J. Pyland tells Witherspoon to stay in the couple's vehicle no fewer than five times, reports AP. Reese keeps getting out of the car and saying all sorts of "crazy" things - just as she told George Stephanopoulos on Good Morning America Thursday.

"Ma'am, get back in that car," the trooper tells her.

She apologizes, and asks if she can say something. "No ma'am," he says, "get back in that car. I'm not going to repeat myself again."

A she continues to try to intervene, the trooper handcuffs her.

"You better not arrest me! Are you kidding me?" she asks.

"Nope," he responds.

"I'm an American citizen! I am allowed to stand on U.S. ground and ask any question I want to ask." she insists, adding, "This is beyond. This is beyond." She turns to tell the trooper, "This is harassment," as he's handcuffing her.

"I'm now being arrested and handcuffed?!" she says.

As the star is taken out of view, she can be heard asking, "Do you know my name sir?"

When he says he doesn't need to, she asks, "You don't need to know my name?" He says "Not quite yet," and she adds, "Oh really. OK, you're about to find out who I am."

The trooper responds, "That's fine. I'm not real worried about you, ma'am. I done told you how things worked. You want to get out and get up in my investigation, that's OK."

"Yes, sir, I do!" she says.

He replies that there's a law against that - "it's called obstruction," she says.

As the trooper returns to husband Jim Toth, he tells him, "I tried"

Toth says "I'm sorry," and the trooper adds, "I absolutely 100 percent tried."

On Thursday, Reese was not present in the Atlanta courtroom where her lawyer entered a no contest plea on her the actress' count of physical obstruction. She will pay a $213 fine, reports GossipCop.

Toth, meanwhile, appeared in court and pled guilty to driving under the influence. He'll avoid jail time, but must complete 40 hours of community service and an alcohol education program.
