Justin Timberlake caught driving drunk

Justin Timberlake, who is currently on tour with his latest album, was picked up and later released by the New York police for driving under the influence.

Shortly after midnight, police discovered him “operating his vehicle in an intoxicated condition,” in Sag Harbor, New York.

Timberlake was driving a 2025 BMW when he allegedly failed to stop at a stop sign and failed to maintain in his lane of travel, a statement from Sag Harbor Police says.

Timberlake told police he “had one martini and I followed my friends home”.

A Sag Harbor Village Police Department officer said he was  “unable to divide attention,” adding “he had slowed speech, he was unsteady afoot and he performed poorly on all standardized field sobriety tests.”

Timberlake also rejected a chemical test three times, the first time saying, “No, I’m not doing a chemical test.”

Timberlake was placed under arrest and held overnight for arraignment, according to police. He was also cited for running the stop sign and failure to keep in his lane, his attorney Ed Burke told CNN.

Timberlake was released without bail.

His next court appearance is scheduled for July 26, and will likely be virtual.
