ATLANTA -- The Georgia State Patrol says it did not release the video from a state trooper's dash-camera showing a combative Reese Witherspoon confronting the officer during a traffic stop in Atlanta.

The video was first obtained by the celebrity website TMZ and rebroadcast by other news media. Witherspoon was arrested on a charge of disorderly conduct.

Georgia State Patrol spokesman Gordy Wright said Friday that the video would be officially released soon. He told The Associated Press no one from his agency leaked the video, and the only copy that had been made earlier was for the prosecutor.

The video shows Witherspoon asking the trooper, "Do you know my name" and then adding, "You're about to find out who I am."

The actress later apologized for her behavior.

Read the transcript of the dash cam videos obtained by TMZ:

Trooper (looking toward a car): Ma'am, get back in that car.
Witherspoon (out of view): You know I'm so sorry.
Trooper: Ma'am, get back in that car.
Witherspoon: Can I say something?
Trooper: No ma'am, get back in that car. I'm not going to repeat myself again.
Witherspoon: I'm pregnant and I need to use the restroom.
Trooper: Ok, well I need you to get back in the car and there ain't nowhere to use it out here. If I tell you again, I'm going to arrest you.
Witherspoon: Yes, sir.

Trooper (as Witherspoon approaches him administering test to Toth): Ma'am, what'd I just tell you to do?
Witherspoon: I'd like to know what's going on.
Trooper: He's under arrest. If you don't get back in the car...
Witherspoon: I'm a U.S. citizen and I'm allowed to stand on American ground...
Trooper: Actually, you're not allowed to do anything...
Witherspoon: ask any question I want to ask.
Trooper: Go ahead. Come on (moves to handcuff her).
Witherspoon: You better not arrest me.
Trooper: Yes, ma'am
Witherspoon: Are you kidding me-
Trooper: Nope. I told you.
Witherspoon: I'm an American citizen!
Trooper: I told you to get in that car and stay in there didn't I?
Witherspoon: This is beyond!
Trooper: I told you.
Witherspoon: This is beyond! (while handcuffed, turning to yell at him)
Trooper: You fight with me, I promise you. (inaudible)
Witherspoon: This is harassment! You're harassing me as an American citizen! I have done nothing against the law!
Husband: Reese, can you please?
Trooper: Yes, you have. You didn't obey my...
Witherspoon: I have to obey your orders?
Trooper: Yes, you do.
Witherspoon: No sir, I do not.
Toth: Reese.
Witherspoon: Absolute nothing,
Toth: Reese, Reese.
Witherspoon: I'm now being arrested and handcuffed- (as she's taken out of view to the police car)
Trooper: Yep.
Witherspoon: Do you know my name sir?
Trooper: Don't need to know it. (inaudible)
Witherspoon: You don't need to know my name?
Trooper: Not quite yet...
Witherspoon: Oh really. Ok, you're about to find out who I am.
Trooper: 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.
Witherspoon: Yes sir, I do.
Trooper: Well guess what. We have a law for that. It's called obstruction.
Witherspoon: I'm obstructing your justice?
Trooper: Yep.
Witherspoon: Really?
Trooper: Yep
Witherspoon: I'm being anti-American?
Trooper: Yep. Go ahead and sit down. (as they approach car)
Witherspoon: Wow!
Trooper: Sit on your butt first, it'll be a lot easier on you.
Witherspoon: Interesting....Arresting me-?
Trooper (back in view) to husband: I tried.
Husband: I'm sorry.
Trooper: I absolutely 100 percent tried.
Toth: I had nothing to do with that.
Trooper: I know.
