As CNN has reported, Justin Timberlake, 43, was arrested on June 18th on suspicion of driving under the influence in the upscale Hamptons area of Long Island. Timberlake, a resident of Franklin, Tennessee, was pulled over around 12:15 a.m. after failing to stop at a stop sign and veering out of his lane, according to police reports.

Timberlake was driving a gray BMW registered in Florida when he was stopped near Madison Street and Middle Line Highway. Upon approaching the vehicle, Sag Harbor Village Police Officer Michael Arkinson noticed signs of intoxication. Timberlake's eyes were reportedly bloodshot and glassy, his speech was slowed, and there was a strong odor of alcohol on his breath.

"I had one martini and I followed my friends home," Timberlake told the police. Despite his statement, he performed poorly on standardized field sobriety tests. Timberlake also refused a chemical test multiple times, saying, "No, I’m not doing a chemical test."

Following his arrest, Timberlake was held overnight and arraigned on one count of driving while intoxicated. He was released without having to post bail and is scheduled to appear in court on July 26. His attorney, Edward Burke Jr., stated, "I look forward to vigorously defending Mr. Timberlake on these allegations."

Timberlake's arrest comes amid his ongoing tour for his latest album, “Everything I Thought It Was.” The incident added emotional weight to his performance on Sunday, where he hit his third consecutive home run in as many games, dedicating it to his mentor.

Sag Harbor, a village in the Hamptons, is known for its affluent residents and serene surroundings. Timberlake was seen leaving the American Hotel in the area shortly before his arrest.

Justin Timberlake, married to actress Jessica Biel since 2012, is a father to two sons, Silas and Phineas. In a recent Father's Day post on Instagram, he expressed his love and commitment to his children, sharing heartfelt words about his role as a father.

As the case progresses, Timberlake's fans and the public await further developments and statements from the artist.
