The police caught Justin Timberlake as he was seen driving his BMW a little after midnight through a stop sign and he was not able to drive the car on the right side of the road. So the officer had to pull him over and do the needful. 

The officer said the following to the media “Upon investigation, it was determined that Mr Timberlake was operating his vehicle in an intoxicated condition.”

“Timberlake’s eyes were “bloodshot and glassy,” and he “performed poorly on all standard field sobriety tests,” the CBS report stated. 

Justin Timberlake repeatedly told the police that he had ‘just one martini’ and that he was following a friend. The singer had to spend the night at the jail, and he was later released without bail by Sag Harbour Village Justice Court and now his next court hearing will be scheduled on June 26th.

He is the father of two sons and is married to actress Jessica Biel and owns 10 Grammy Awards and 4 Emmy Awards.
