The crooner’s arrest on Monday night came at a critical time for Timberlake, who last performed in Miami on June 15. The unexpected legal trouble has since sparked concerns about whether his upcoming scheduled performances will proceed as planned.

Timberlake’s arrest was also particularly surprising given the singer’s usually clean public image and longstanding career in the entertainment industry.

Legal experts have since suggested that, if Timberlake is found guilty of DWI, he could face severe penalties - including fines, license suspension, and possibly even jail time.

"Driving while intoxicated is a serious offense," one legal analyst said. "Given his public status, any legal consequences will be closely scrutinized by both fans and the media."

“So disappointing to hear this about Justin,” another fan tweeted. “He should have known better.”

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Timberlake’s shocking arrest only added to an already tumultuous year for the former NSYNC star.

Earlier this year, he faced considerable public scrutiny for taking a dig at his ex, Britney Spears, during a show in New York City.

Before he started to sing Cry Me a River, which is about Spears, he told the crowd: “I’m gonna take time to apologize, to absolutely f------ nobody!”

The move came just days after Spears issued a semi-apology for spilling all about her relationship with Timberlake in her memoir The Woman in Me.
