Justin Timberlake has been arrested after a drunk driving incident in the Hamptons.

The "Suit & Tie" singer, 43, was arrested Monday night for driving while intoxicated in Sag Harbor, New York, per ABC News.

As of Tuesday morning, he was still in police custody, and is reportedly due in court on Tuesday, June 25. The father-of-two is currently on tour and has two scheduled shows in Chicago this weekend, and another two in New York City the week of his court hearing. As opposed to a DUI, which stands for driving while under the influence and accounts for both alcohol and drugs, a DWI refers only to intoxication by alcohol.

As part of the Forget Tomorrow World Tour, Justin, who released his new album Everything I Thought It Was in March, has concerts in Chicago on June 21 and 22, followed by a concert in New York City on the day of his reported court date, Tuesday, June 25, plus another on June 26, before heading out to Boston and later Maryland and Pennsylvania.

The boy band singer-turned-solo star and actor was driving a 2025 BMW in Sag Harbor around 12:30 a.m. when an officer stopped him and determined he was intoxicated, according to a court document obtained by AP.

“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 papers said.

Justin told the officer he had one martini and was following some friends home, according to the documents. After being arrested and taken to a police station in nearby East Hampton, he refused a breath test, said the court papers, which listed his occupation as “professional” and said he’s “self-employed.”

Justin's lawyer Edward Burke Jr, declined to comment but explained that he doesn't need to appear in person for his next court date. 

One day before his DWI arrest, Justin celebrated Father's Day with his wife Jessica Biel, with whom he shares sons Silas, nine, and Phineas, three.

The 7th Heaven alum took to Instagram to pay tribute to him on the special day, sharing candid photos of their rarely-seen sons in addition to a loved-up selfie of the two of them.

"You're so many things to so many people. But to us you are THE ROCK," she wrote in her caption.

"The rock we climb on, we lean against. The rock that shades us from the sun," she continued, adding: "And when we recline on you, as we always do, hopefully our butts will keep you eternally grounded and warm. We LOVE YOU."

Where was Jessica?

The incident in Sag Harbour occurred Monday night, and as of Tuesday morning, Justin was still in police custody. Meanwhile, his wife was pictured throughout Monday in Manhattan, filming in Central Park.

In photos from the day, she is seen in costume — and in good spirits — filming a series adaptation of the Alafair Burke novel The Better Sister, alongside Corey Stoll and Elizabeth Banks, who like Jessica is both acting and serving as executive producer. It's unclear whether she remained in the city after filming, or headed out East to where Justin is.

Though they briefly broke up in March of 2011, by December of that year, they were engaged, after Justin proposed during a vacation in Montana, where they owned property at the time.

They tied the knot in Fasano, Italy on October 19, 2012, and welcomed their first son Silas in April 2015 followed by his younger brother Phineas in the summer of 2020.
