One of the recent incidents which stirred lots of debate is that Justin Timberlake was released from custody after he was charged with driving while intoxicated. The event took place in Sag Harbor, New York, where the 43-year-old singer had his way into facing DWI charges, besides getting two other tickets for violation of traffic laws.

On June 18, 2024, at 5:00 am, Timberlake was observed by Sag Harbor Village Police driving a 2025 BMW in such a reckless manner that resulted in his car being stopped. The police, in their statements, informed Timberlake that he did not stop at a stop sign or stay within his lane and that, due to their follow-up investigation, they ascertained he was indeed driving under the influence.

Timberlake was taken to the Sag Harbor Village Justice Court to be formally charged and thus released by the court on his bond.

Timberlake's Court Appearance

During his court appearance, Timberlake wore a black bowling shirt, light jeans, as well as white and baby blue Air Force 1 sneakers on his feet, and was handcuffed during the process.

His posture was less than comfortable, but then, he was with his attorney, Ed Burke Junior, and two more. Missing from the event was his wife, Jessica Biel, who made the situation even more serious. It happened that at that time, Timberlake was eating in the American Hotel in Sag Harbor, after which he had planned to get into his car and go to a friend’s house.

Thankfully, no one was hurt after the accident had occurred as reported. This legal problem emerged at a time when Timberlake had been struggling to meet his schedule for the “Forget Tomorrow World Tour” that promotes his most recent album known as “Everything I Thought It Was.

” He has more shows in Chicago and New York. Besides his career, there has recently been coverage by media on Timberlake celebrating Father’s day with his family. In an Instagram post, Biel showered Timberlake with compliments, calling him ‘THE ROCK’ of their family after he had supported them both as musicians and as fathers to their two young sons, Silas and Phineas.

In turn Timberlake presented his heartfelt message to his sons where he acknowledges the reason behind their existence to give him a purpose and that he is going to be there for them regardless of their achievements or failures.
