ATLANTA (AP) - 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.
