Jim Toth feels "awful" for getting his wife, Reese Witherspoon, involved in his driving under the influence arrest.

Jim Toth feels "awful" for getting his wife, Reese Witherspoon,  involved in his driving under the influence (DUI) arrest.

The This Means War actress was arrested for disorderly conduct last Friday after Jim (42) 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 tested 1.39 on the sobriety test, more than Georgia's legal limit of .08, when he and Reese (37) were pulled over in the early hours of the morning.

"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 source added.

The couple, who have seven-month-old son Tennessee together, have been granted bail until their court hearing on 22 May.

Reese – who also has children Ava (13) and Deacon (10), with ex-husband Ryan Phillippe  – has since made a public apology for her behaviour.
