Pop superstar Justin Timberlake was arrested on June 18 in Long Island, New York, for driving while intoxicated, according to his attorney. The “Cry Me A River” singer was taken into custody after allegedly running a stop sign and failing to stay in the correct traffic lane.

Timberlake, 43, appeared in court and was released without bail. His lawyer issued a statement explaining the circumstances of the arrest: “The charge was a single count because he refused the breath test. Mr. Timberlake was also charged with two other court citations, running a stop sign and not traveling in the correct traffic lane.”

Court documents obtained by the New York Post reveal that Timberlake claimed to have consumed “one martini.” The documents also described his condition at the time of the arrest, stating, “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.”

Adding to the unusual nature of the incident, the New York Post reported that the arresting officer was unaware of Timberlake’s celebrity status, describing the officer as “so young that he didn’t even know” the 10-time Grammy winner.

Timberlake is scheduled to return to court on July 26.

The singer, who is married to actress Jessica Biel, is currently on his Forget Tomorrow World Tour. Despite the recent legal issues, Timberlake is set to perform two shows at Chicago’s United Center on June 21 and 22, followed by a performance at New York’s Madison Square Garden next week.
