Justin Timberlake Arrested for DWI in the Hamptons.

Pop Star Faces Charges After Allegedly Failing Field Sobriety Test

Singer Justin Timberlake was arrested early Tuesday morning in the Hamptons enclave of Sag Harbor, New York, for driving while intoxicated (DWI).

The 43-year-old Timberlake, known for hits like "SexyBack" and "Cry Me a River," was reportedly pulled over by police shortly after leaving the American Hotel in Sag Harbor around midnight. Law enforcement sources allege that Timberlake exhibited signs of intoxication, including swerving across lanes and disregarding a stop sign.

According to TMZ, officers suspected a DWI and requested that Timberlake perform a field sobriety test. He reportedly refused the test and subsequently declined to take a breathalyzer. Despite pleas from friends who arrived at the scene, Timberlake was arrested and later arraigned on charges of DWI, running a stop sign, and failing to stay in his lane. He is scheduled to reappear in court on July 26.

Incident Follows Father's Day Tributes

The arrest comes just days after Timberlake and his wife, actress Jessica Biel, shared Father's Day tributes on social media. Biel posted a heartfelt message praising Timberlake for his role as a husband and father to their two sons, Silas (9) and Phineas (3). Timberlake reciprocated the sentiment, expressing his love and dedication to his sons.

Impact on Tour Schedule Unclear

The arrest has raised questions about the potential impact on Timberlake's ongoing tour. Currently underway, the "Man of the Woods" tour features shows across North America and Europe. The first leg in North America concludes on July 9, followed by a hiatus before resuming in Europe on July 29.

Representatives Yet to Comment

Neither Timberlake's representatives nor the Sag Harbor Police Department have publicly commented on the arrest.

Possible Legal Repercussions

A DWI conviction in New York can carry serious penalties, including fines, license suspension, and even jail time. The severity of the punishment typically depends on the blood alcohol content (BAC) level at the time of arrest and any prior DWI offenses.

This incident is likely to garner significant media attention, potentially impacting Timberlake's public image and career. It remains to be seen how the legal proceedings will unfold and whether the arrest will lead to any changes in his tour schedule.
