Justin Timberlake Arrested, Charged With Drunk Driving Outside NYC

Justin Timberlake, a pop artist, was detained and charged with driving while intoxicated in a posh town east of New York City on Tuesday, according to local media.

The 43-year-old Timberlake, famed for hits including “SexyBack” and “Cry Me a River,” was arrested in Sag Harbor, an opulent Hamptons enclave, early Tuesday morning.

According to court filings, a police officer stated that Timberlake was “in an intoxicated condition” when he was pulled over for passing a stop sign and failed to stay on the right side of the road.

Timberlake’s eyes were “bloodshot and glassy,” and he “performed poorly on all standard field sobriety tests,” according to CBS. The singer-actor allegedly informed police that he “had one martini” and was following his companions home.

When AFP contacted local police, they did not immediately confirm the claimed arrest.

Timberlake, who is currently touring, was freed on his own recognizance following his arraignment.

Timberlake rose to prominence as a member of the boy band NSYNC before pursuing a solo career and finally transitioning to film. He’s won ten Grammys and four Emmys.

He’s married to actress Jessica Biel. The couple has two sons.
