Bartender Jumps in After Justin Timberlake Says He Only 'Had One Martini' at Sag Harbor's America Hotel


The Justin Timberlake DWI plot continues to thicken, as a bartender at the hotel where the former boy-bander drank before being arrested on a drunken driving charge backed up the singer’s claim that he had only one martini.

On Saturday, an unnamed bartender at the American Hotel in Sag Harbor, New York, told People magazine that Timberlake had just “one martini” before leaving.

The bartender’s statement corroborated the Grammy winner’s statement to police.

“If he was drinking more, it wasn’t here,” another hotel employee told People.

According to his arrest report, Timberlake told officers, “I had one martini and I followed my friends home.”

The former NSYNC singer was arrested shortly after midnight on June 18 on Long Island for driving while intoxicated, according to the Sag Harbor Police Department.

Timberlake was pulled over for allegedly blowing through a stop sign and failing to stay in his lane, News 12 New York reported.

The arresting officer determined the pop star was intoxicated after he failed a field sobriety test. He refused a Breathalyzer test.

The officer said Timberlake’s “eyes were bloodshot and glassy” when he was stopped, according to the police report per People.

“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 officer said in the report.

Since his arrest, there have been countless news reports and endless social media speculation on Timberlake’s alleged intoxication and whether it points to an alcohol problem.

Meanwhile, video footage of Timberlake looking glassy-eyed while performing in Las Vegas in May has since gone viral on social media.

On Friday, the liberal entertainer spoke out for the first time since his arrest at a concert in Chicago.

Amid thunderous applause and cheers, Timberlake told fans, “I know sometimes I’m hard to love. But you keep on loving me and I love you right back.”

No matter how much his fans love him, all should want justice to be done in his DWI case.

A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:


I heard a chilling comment the other day: “We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” 


That wasn’t said by a conspiracy theorist or a doomsday prophet. No, former U.S. national security advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn said that to the founder of The Western Journal, Floyd Brown.


Gen. Flynn’s warning means that the 2024 election is the most important election for every single living American. If we lose this one to the wealthy elites who hate us, hate God, and hate what America stands for, we can only assume that 248 years of American history and the values we hold dear to our hearts may soon vanish.


The end game is here, and as Benjamin Franklin said, “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”


All of this means that without you, it’s over. We have the platform, the journalists, and the experience to fight back hard, but Big Tech is strangling us through advertising blacklists, shadow bans, and algorithms. Did you know that we’ve been blacklisted by 90% of advertisers? Without direct support from you, our readers, we can’t continue the fight.


Can we count on your support? It may not seem like much, but a Western Journal Membership can make all the difference in the world because when you support us directly, you cut Big Tech out of the picture. They lose control. 


A monthly Western Journal Membership costs less than one coffee and breakfast sandwich each month, and it gets you access to ALL of our content — news, commentary, and premium articles. You’ll experience a radically reduced number of ads, and most importantly you will be vitally supporting the fight for America’s soul in 2024.


We are literally counting on you because without our members, The Western Journal would cease to exist. Will you join us in the fight?
