Justin Timberlake Arrested for DWI in Sag Harbor After Refusing Breathalyzer

 

Incident Details

Justin Timberlake was arrested early Tuesday in Sag Harbor, New York, for driving while intoxicated. The 43-year-old singer was pulled over after running a stop sign and swerving out of his lane. Timberlake told officers he had just “one martini” and was following friends home. He refused to take a Breathalyzer test three times.

Field Sobriety Test and Arraignment

Timberlake failed a field sobriety test and was taken into custody. He appeared in court later in the morning, where he was released without bail. The singer faces up to a year in jail if convicted, though experts believe a reduced charge and fine are more likely due to his clean record.

Evening Before the Arrest

Sources revealed Timberlake had been dining with friends at the American Hotel before the incident. Witnesses reported he appeared “wasted” and was seen drinking someone else’s drink. The hotel is a popular spot frequented by celebrities and located close to the local police station.

Impact on Tour

Timberlake, currently on his ‘Forget Tomorrow World Tour’, expressed concern that the arrest would impact his tour. He has upcoming shows in Chicago and New York City. Despite the arrest, Timberlake’s primary focus remains on his tour, and his legal team is expected to handle the court proceedings.
