Timberlake was arrested on DWI charges in Sag Harbor Monday night.

“We look forward to vigorously defending Mr. Timberlake against these allegations,” powerhouse attorney Edward Burke Jr. said in a statement on Wednesday morning. “He will have a lot to say at the appropriate time.”

“He is currently awaiting full discovery from the DA’s office,” Timberlake’s lawyer added.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Timberlake was arrested for driving while intoxicated in the Hamptons late Monday night into early Tuesday morning of this week.

The NSYNC alum was reportedly arrested in Sag Harbor after he was pulled over by a police officer on his way home from dinner with friends at a nearby hotel earlier in the evening.

Timberlake was charged with one count of driving while intoxicated and two other traffic violations.

“[The arresting officer] was so young that he didn’t even know who the pop star was,” the source said. “He didn’t recognize him or his name.”

“He was a gentleman,” another source spilled regarding Timberlake’s arrest this week. “He didn’t show any entitlement at all. He did refuse the tests, but that is his right.”

RadarOnline.com has since obtained Timberlake’s mugshot from the night of his arrest. He appeared to have bloodshot and glossy eyes in the booking photo, although he reportedly told an officer that he only consumed “one martini” before climbing behind the wheel of his 2025 BMW.

Timberlake was also photographed in handcuffs and footage has since emerged showing the singer driving around Sag Harbor mere minutes before his subsequent DWI arrest.
