Timberlake's attorney has vowed to vigorously defend the singer.

Sag Harbor Village police said that Timberlake drove through a stop sign and swerved into oncoming traffic around 12:37 AM.

In the report, it was claimed that Timberlake's "eyes were bloodshot and glassy, a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage was emanating from his breath, he was unable to divide attention, he had slowed speech, he was unsteady afoot."

The former NSYNC hitmaker was behind the wheel of a 2025 gray BMW XM on Madison Street when he failed to halt.

Timberlake was charged with one count of DWI and two citations: one for running a stop sign and the other for failure to keep in lane.

The singer is currently slated to perform two N.Y.C. shows next week as part of his tour which has been a hot topic following recent events.

"Justin said under his breath, 'This is going to ruin the tour,'" a source told Page Six. "The cop replied, 'What tour?' Justin said, 'The world tour.'"

Insiders said he has been going through a rough patch personally and professionally amid reports that his wife, Jessica Biel, is "extremely upset" over his arrest. Timberlake and Biel have been married since 2012 and share two children together.
