Cop Who Arrested Justin Timberlake Was So ‘Young’ He Didn’t Recognize Pop Star

The cop who arrested Justin Timberlake for DWI in the Hamptons was so young that he didn’t recognize the superstar, according to a report.

The 10-time Grammy winner, 43, was arrested Tuesday at 12:17 a.m. in the wealthy Hamptons enclave of Sag Harbor, Long Island, known as a popular destination for celebrities in the summer months. The pop star claimed to have consumed just “one martini,” according to a complaint obtained by the New York Post.

Timberlake, who rose to fame as a Disney Mouseketeer before becoming one of the biggest pop stars of the 1990s and 2000s, appeared in a Long Island court on Tuesday and was released without bail, according to TMZ. He is due back in court on July 26. A booking photo from his arrest has not been released, but photos showed Timberlake in handcuffs at a local police station.

Police told the outlet Timberlake was at the American Hotel partying and blew through a stop sign when he left. Cops started to follow him, and pulled him over after he started swerving. The singer told police that he was following his friends home.

Timberlake “performed poorly on all standardized field sobriety tests” and repeatedly refused to take a breathalyzer, the complaint says.

Officers observed Timberlake with glassy eyes and smelled alcohol on his breath. “He was unable to divide attention, he had slowed speech, he was unsteady afoot,” the complaint said.
