He has yet to publicly address his arrest.

"He made sure that this arrest didn’t create tension in the crew, he reacted like a boss, like someone who owns his s---," the insider said. "He said sorry for bringing this kind of attention to the team. Everyone was happy to hear what he said."

As RadarOnline.com reported, Timberlake was arrested for driving while intoxicated in Sag Harbor earlier this week.

The singer was pulled over after allegedly blowing through a stop sign and failing to drive straight after meeting up with friends at a nearby hotel. Police said the star refused a breathalyzer test.

“The cop didn’t know who he was at first,” a source told Page Six. “Justin said under his breath, ‘This is going to ruin the tour.’ The cop replied, ‘What tour?’ Justin said, ‘The world tour.'”
