Bloodshot, glassy eyes and strong breath odor: new details of Justin Timberlake's arrest. Surveillance video

Details of Justin Timberlake's arrest

The famous American singer Justin Timberlake was detained for allegedly violating traffic rules, which turned out to be several. Law enforcement officials report that the artist ignored a stop sign and "did not keep to the right side of the roadway." In particular, he was so drunk that he had significant problems with coordination after the car stopped.

It is known that the incident occurred in Sag Harbor, New York, USA, on the night of June 17-18. The Daily Mail writes that the policeman who stopped the artist's car was unaware of Timberlake's worldwide fame, so he treated him like an ordinary American citizen.

Interestingly, the singer even mentioned his current tour, The Forget Tomorrow, which is the reason for him currently traveling around the country. An arrest for a longer period could have ruined all his plans.

Justin had said under his breath, "This is going to ruin the tour," to which the officer replied, "What tour?" Justin said, "The world tour," the source quoted the eyewitness as saying.

Timberlake's mugshot clearly shows his red glassy eyes, as evidenced in court documents. The artist convinced law enforcement that he had only had one martini, but his physical condition indicated the opposite: the singer could barely stand and refused to take a sobriety test.

"His 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 and he performed poorly on all standardized field sobriety tests," the court document said.

"Mr. Timberlake was arrested, detained and held overnight for arraignment in the morning. Mr. Timberlake was arraigned in Sag Harbor Village Court on June 18, 2024 at 9:30 a.m. and released on his own recognizance," the law enforcement agency said in a statement, People reports.

The trial was scheduled to take place on the day of his arrest, Tuesday, June 18. Timberlake was released without bail. However, the incident is not over. The next court hearing will take place on July 26.

The TMZ tabloid, citing an insider, reported earlier, "Justin went to dinner with friends at a hotel in Sag Harbor on Monday night, and around 00:30 a.m., we're told, he got into his car to return to where he was staying... Almost immediately after he got behind the wheel, he was pulled over."

According to Page Six, citing an anonymous source, the singer has a problem with alcohol. "It's not a secret. Everyone knows. He has a real problem with alcohol, a lot of weed — but a major alcohol problem, and he’s been hiding and masking it for years," the insider said.
