Whether she's telling off a police officer ("You're about to find out who I am!") or her husband ("I'm allowed to say anything I want to say!"), the dashboard footage from Reese Witherspoon's April 19 arrest shows off a side of the actress that's, well, not exactly her famous good-girl image.

And boy, is she ever sorry. "She really messed up," says a source. "And she knows it." 

At the same time, several people who know her tell PEOPLE in this week's issue that the Nashville-bred star has a feisty streak that is rarely glimpsed in public.

They're one big happy family – at least as far as soccer is concerned.

On Saturday, Reese Witherspoon and her husband Jim Toth – who welcomed their first child together in September – were joined by her ex husband (and father of her two older kids) Ryan Phillippe on the sidelines of their son Deacon's soccer game.

"Jim and Ryan seemed to get along great," an observer tells PEOPLE of Witherspoon's current and former husbands. "They were both very involved in the game and kept cheering and clapping. Including Reese, they all seemed to have fun watching Deacon play."

From the looks of things, all three parents took an active role in being there for the 9-year-old budding athlete, who at one point left the field after he fell on his already-injured wrist.

Reese Witherspoon Goes Hiking with Her Father

Reese Witherspoon went hiking with her father John in Santa Monica, Calif., on Saturday amid her parents' ongoing legal dispute over his second marriage.

The Oscar winner, 36, took her children Ava and Deacon along for what a witness says was a low-key, quiet walk together.

It has been a difficult time for the Witherspoon family, with Reese's mother Betty suing John in Tennessee, alleging that he married another woman while still married to her – though they've been separated since 1996. Betty alleged in an affidavit that John has problems with alcohol and may have early-onset dementia.
