• Justin Timberlake was arrested in the Hamptons for DWI
  • But there is insult to injury
  • The arresting cop didn't even recognize him

In a twist that reads like a scene from a Hollywood movie, Justin Timberlake (43), the pop sensation known for his electrifying performances and chart-topping hits, found himself on the wrong side of the law—and in handcuffs! The incident, which unfolded in the high-profile Hamptons, has left fans and followers in utter disbelief.

A Night to Forget for Timberlake

It was a typical star-studded night in Sag Harbor, Long Island, until it wasn't. Timberlake, who has graced stages worldwide and won hearts with his melodies, was arrested for DWI early Tuesday morning. The "Cry Me a River" singer, who claimed to have consumed just "one martini," failed to navigate a stop sign, leading to a sequence of events straight out of a tabloid headline.

Despite his superstar status, Timberlake's fame didn't ring a bell for the arresting officer—a detail that's as shocking as the arrest itself. According to reports, the officer was so young he didn't recognize the Grammy-winning artist. Yes, you read that right!

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.

Following his arrest, Timberlake appeared in court, walking away without bail but with a return date set for July 26. While a booking photo is now here, images of a handcuffed Timberlake have surfaced, painting a picture far removed from the glitz and glamor associated with his name.

The arrest throws a shadow over Timberlake's ongoing 'The Forget Tomorrow World Tour,' with fans left wondering about the future of scheduled performances. This hiccup comes hot on the heels of Timberlake's recent act of heroism during a concert, where he paused the show to assist a fan in distress—a moment that showcased the star's genuine concern for his audience.

"House lights up, thank you! Sorry everybody one second... we need some assistance right here about five rows back," he said in video footage of the incident.

"OK, we’re OK," he went on to say, when the fan seemingly signaled back to him.

Timberlake's latest album, 'Everything I Thought I Was,' may not have received the warmest of receptions, but it's his personal life that continues to dominate headlines. From his high-profile relationship with Britney Spears to his marriage to Jessica Biel, Timberlake's journey has been nothing short of a rollercoaster.

In February, Timberlake raised eyebrows when he declared during a live performance that he wanted to apologize to "absolutely f***ing nobody" just days after Spears expressed regret for some of the revelations made in Spears’s book.

After the release of Timberlake’s single "Selfish" in March, fans of Spears began streaming her 2011 song with the same title in response, resulting in it topping Timberlake’s sales during its first full week
