Reese Witherspoon

Inspired by Walter White's

'Breaking Bad' Arrest

This is just beyond ... but turns out Reese Witherspoon's rant during her Atlanta arrest could have been an audition for "Breaking Bad" -- because it's a damn good imitation of a scene where Walter White gets busted.

Way back in Season 3 ... Bryan Cranston's meth-cooking chem teacher character got pulled over for a shattered windshield, and went off on the officer saying ... "This is America and I have rights," and ... "Pepper spray the man who's expressing his opinion under the 1st Amendment!!"

Sound familiar?

Watch the 'BB' scene and Reese's infamous verbal eruption where, for starters, she said, "I'm allowed to stand on American ground and ask any question I want to ask."

Coincidence? Or maybe Reese saw the episode shortly before her run-in with Johnny Law?

At least she avoided the pepper spray ... which would have been "beyond."

Walter hasn't gone on a rant or really been busted! How stupid is the person who wrote this story? Fire them

If her rant was inspired by BB, she's incredibly stupid.

Reese is a nut case and her chin is getting worse. Hopefully Avon doesn't continue to keep her around.
