Justin Timberlake Arrested, in Custody After Alleged DWI

Justin Timberlake was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated in Sag Harbor, New York on Monday night (June 17). According to CNN, a spokesperson for the Sag Harbor Police Department confirmed that Timberlake, 43, remained in custody as of Tuesday morning (June 18) while a rep for the Sag Harbor Justice Court told the network that the singer is slated to appear in court today.

Spokespeople for Timberlake and the Sag Harbor PD had not returned Billboard‘s request for additional comment on the incident at press time.

According to People, the Sag Harbor PD is expected to release a statement on the arrest later today. The magazine quoted an unnamed source saying that Timberlake was arrested on DWI charges after having dinner in the area and was reportedly pulled over after leaving a restaurant on his way to a friend’s house.

Timberlake is in the midst of his tour Forget Tomorrow world tour, which is slated to hit the road again on Friday (June 21) with the first of two shows at the United Center in Chicago; the most recent date on the outing was a June 15 show at the Kaseya Center in Miami. Earlier this month, JT stopped a show at the Moody Center in Austin, Texas when he spotted someone in the audience who seemed to be in distress and asked security to check on the person.

As the band kept playing, security walked into the crowd and Timberlake requested that the house lights be brought up so they could see where the problem was. “House lights up, thank you. Sorry everybody, one second, one second. We need some assistance here about five rows back,” Timberlake said with concern. The audience member appeared to be okay and Timberlake dove right back into his performance of “Cry Me a River.”

This is a developing story and Billboard will update it as more details emerge.
