Pop Star Justin Timberlake Arrested in the Hamptons, Heads to Court


Pop star Justin Timberlake was arrested early Tuesday on a charge of driving while intoxicated, according to news reports.

A Sag Harbor Police Department representative said that “as of the morning of Tuesday, June 18, the singer, 43, was in police custody,” People reported.

The outlet said the department would be releasing a statement later Tuesday.

Page Six reported that the “Selfish” singer had been with a group of friends at the American Hotel and that “there were cops stationed outside where he was having dinner.”

He was quickly pulled over and was given a field sobriety test, but he refused to take a breathalyzer test.

The star’s friends tried to deter the police, telling them that Timberlake was a star and urging them to, “Let him go, let him go.”

But the police officer who had stopped Timberlake “was so young that he didn’t even know” who he was.

“He didn’t recognize him or his name,” an “insider” told the outlet.

A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:


“We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” Those 12 words have been stuck in my head since I first read them. 


Former Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn recently made that comment to Floyd Brown, founder of The Western Journal. 


And if the leftists and the elites get their way, that’s exactly what will happen — no real election, no real choice for the Electoral College, and no real say for the American people. 


The Western Journal is fighting to keep that from happening, but we can’t do it alone.


We work tirelessly to expose the lying leftist media and the corrupt America-hating elites.


But Big Tech’s stranglehold is now so tight that without help from you, we will not be able to continue the fight. 


The 2024 election is literally the most important election for every living American. We have to unite and fight for our country, otherwise we will lose it. And if we lose the America we love in 2024, we’ll lose it for good. Can we count on you to help? 


With you we will be able to field journalists, do more investigative work, expose more corruption, and get desperately needed truth to millions of Americans. 


We can do this only with your help. Please don’t wait one minute. Donate right now.


Thank you for reading,

Josh Manning
