On Tuesday, June 18, the 43-year-old NSYNC member was pulled over by a police officer while driving in the Hamptons on Long Island, New York. According to the criminal complaint obtained by CNN, Timberlake allegedly didn’t stop at a stop sign and allegedly wasn’t driving in his lane while behind the wheel of a 2025 BMW.

The arresting officer alleged that Justin’s eyes were “bloodshot and glassy,” and “he had slowed speech, he was unsteady afoot and he performed poorly on all standardized field sobriety tests.” Additionally, the Everything I Thought It Was artist refused to take a Breathalyzer test three times, per the complaint by the arresting officer. He was then charged with one count of driving while intoxicated and two traffic violations.

He also reportedly informed the officer, “I had one martini, and I followed my friends home.”

According to a statement from Burke obtained by Us Weekly, the lawyer noted, “The charge was a single count because he refused the breath test. Mr. Timberlake was also charged with two other court citations, running a stop sign and not traveling in the correct traffic lane.”

Timberlake was subsequently arrested at around 12:30 a.m. and was processed at the Sag Harbor Police Department. Hours later, he was released from police custody.
