ATLANTA (AP) -- A court hearing on a disorderly conduct charge has been rescheduled for actress Reese Witherspoon, who said she's "deeply embarrassed" by what she said to a state trooper during a traffic stop in Atlanta.

Witherspoon's case was scheduled for a Monday morning hearing, but it was reset for May 22. She was arrested Friday.

The Oscar-winning actress released a statement late Sunday apologizing for her behavior when her husband, Hollywood agent Jim Toth, was arrested and accused of driving under the influence of alcohol.

A state trooper's report says she told the trooper: "Do you know my name?" The report states she also said: "You're about to find out who I am."

The actress didn't appear in court Monday. She was in New York on Sunday night.
