Why is Justin Timberlake arrested and taken into custody?

In a surprising twist, Justin Timberlake has reportedly been taken into custody on charges of driving while intoxicated in Long Island, New York. Sources have reassured that no one was injured during the incident involving the “Mirrors” singer, who remains under police custody.

The Sag Harbor Police Department has indicated that Timberlake will stay in custody pending further legal proceedings, with an official statement from authorities expected soon to shed light on the arrest.


While neither official confirmation of the charges nor comments from Timberlake’s representatives have surfaced, insider sources have pointed to DWI allegations. According to reports, Timberlake departed from the American Hotel in Sag Harbor after a dinner outing and was stopped by police en route to a friend’s residence. “He will be arraigned shortly,” a source disclosed.

Amidst these developments, Timberlake’s recent activities have revolved around his “Forget Tomorrow World Tour,” which supports his latest album, “Everything I Thought It Was.” Scheduled next are performances at Chicago’s United Center on June 21 and 22, followed by a highly anticipated show at New York City’s Madison Square Garden on June 25 and 26. However, given the unexpected turn of events, adjustments to the tour schedule are likely in the works.

Following the conclusion of his U.S. tour dates by July 9, Timberlake had planned an extensive European leg throughout the summer and fall. The singer’s legal situation may necessitate further adjustments to these plans as details surrounding his arrest continue to unfold.
