Reese Witherspoon Back to the Scene of the Crime

Reese Witherspoon
is headed back to the city where no one knows her name ... well, they probably do now.

Our photogs spotted the "Legally Blonde" star at LAX bright and early this morning, hopping a plane back to Atlanta ... scene of her embarrassing arrest last week.

Reese wasn't in a chatty mood when our guy tried to spark a conversation but given her recent history ... that's probably the right move for her.
