Justin Timberlake arrested on DWI charge in the Hamptons

3 weeks ago 28

Justin Timberlake was arrested in the Hamptons overnight on a charge of driving while intoxicated.

The 43-year-old singer was driving a 2025 BMW a little after midnight on Tuesday when he ignored a stop sign and failed to stay in his lane, according to a Sag Harbor Police Department news release. The police officer who stopped him found that he was “operating his vehicle in an intoxicated condition.”

Timberlake appeared in court Tuesday morning and was later released from police custody, according to a police representative for Sag Harbor, an affluent Long Island village. He is due for a virtual court hearing July 26, the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office said.

The Grammy-winning artist is on the Forget Tomorrow World Tour, which features his latest album, “Everything I Thought It Was,” and has its next stop in Chicago on Friday.

Timberlake’s attorney Edward Burke Jr. declined to comment, and other representatives for Timberlake did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The entertainer has admitted to excessive drinking in the past. In 2019, he apologized in a now-deleted Instagram post for his “strong lapse in judgement” after a video showed him stumbling while holding hands with “Palmer” co-star Alisha Wainwright: “I drank way too much that night and I regret my behavior.”

In a 2014 interview revisited in “Oprah’s Master Class: The Podcast,” he mentioned that he once drank “a whole bottle of whiskey” after a set where audience members threw bottles at him and the other performers onstage.

Timberlake rallied against drunken driving in 2002, according to the Associated Press. After a fan was killed by a pickup truck while waiting to see him, the performer said in a statement that the tragedy “demonstrates the horrors of drunk driving.”

Timberlake first rose to fame as a child star, notably on “The All New Mickey Mouse Club” alongside Britney Spears, Ryan Gosling and Christina Aguilera. He dominated pop music in the late 1990s and early 2000s with hits such as “Bye Bye Bye” and “I Want You Back” as part of NSYNC, before pursuing a solo career in 2002.
