Is it us or are too many celebrities being busted for DUI's this month? This past weekend actress Reese Witherspoon and her hubby Jim Toth were arrested for driving while intoxicated in Atlanta. Police stopped Toth for driving on the wrong side of the lane, to which Witherspoon allegedly responded by demanding to know whether cops knew who she was—because, you know, celebrities are exempt from police stops. "I clearly had one drink too many," said Witherspoon in an apology.

Comedian Kevin Hart also had a run-in with the law earlier this month after police busted him for speeding and driving at nearly 90 mph on the freeway. "On some real sh*t…drinking and driving is not a game or a laughing matter," Hart later tweeted. "This is a wake up call for me, I have to be smarter and last night I wasn't."

Our question is, where are the entourages when celebs like Hart and Witherspoon stumble out of wherever they've been drinking? And what do you do when you see that a friend who's had one too many is about to drive? Do you keep their keys, call a cab for them or figure they'll sort themselves out? Share your thoughts and comments with us below.
