Singer and actor Justin Timberlake has been arrested for driving while intoxicated in the Hamptons.

The Suffolk County District Attorney’s office confirmed to NPR that Timberlake was arrested on Tuesday in Sag Harbor and arraigned in Sag Harbor Village Justice Court later that morning.

Sag Harbor is one of the beachfront communities on the eastern end of Long Island, and a popular summer destination for affluent New Yorkers.

NPR has reached out to Timberlake’s representatives for comment.

Sag Harbor Police Department said in a Tuesday afternoon statement that an officer pulled Timberlake over in a 2025 BMW just after 12:30 am local time after he was observed driving through a stop sign without stopping and failing to “maintain his lane of travel.”

“Upon investigation it was determined that Mr. Timberlake was operating his vehicle in an intoxicated condition,” they said.

Timberlake was held overnight and released after his 9:30 am arraignment.

The 43-year-old is nearly two months into the North American leg of his “Forget Tomorrow” World Tour. He's promoting his sixth studio album — and first in six years — Everything I Thought It Was, released in March.
