US singer: Justin Timberlake caught drunk in car

US singer Justin Timberlake has just released a new album and is on tour with it. But now there has been an incident with the police.

US singer Justin Timberlake (43) was caught driving while under the influence of alcohol and was temporarily taken into police custody. The singer is accused of drunk driving and other traffic violations, according to a statement from the police department in Sag Harbor on Long Island, which was made available to the German Press Agency. According to police, the incident occurred on Tuesday shortly after midnight in the town of Sag Harbor, about 150 kilometers east of the metropolis of New York.

Among other things, Timberlake ran a stop sign and was then stopped by a patrol car, the report says. The singer was taken into custody and spent the night at the police station. After a court appearance on Tuesday morning (local time), he was released. His management did not initially respond to a request from the German Press Agency.

Lawyer: I look forward to defense

Justin Timberlake’s lawyer says he is looking forward to defending the pop star. “I look forward to vigorously defending Mr Timberlake on these allegations,” Edward Burke Jr. said in a statement seen by the PA news agency. “I will have much to say in due course, but am currently awaiting a full explanation from the prosecution service.” The next court date is scheduled for the end of July, according to the prosecution service.

On Tuesday, the police released a so-called “mug shot,” a police photo of Timberlake in custody. The singer looks directly into the camera with a serious expression. The photo went viral on the Internet.

According to a court document, an officer said Timberlake’s breath smelled strongly of alcohol and the pop singer was unsteady on his feet.

The singer, who is married to actress Jessica Biel and has two children, became famous primarily with the boy group *NSYNC and is now also successful as a solo artist. He is currently on tour with a new album. As part of his “Forget Tomorrow” world tour, the next concerts are scheduled for Friday in Chicago and New York. The multiple Grammy winner (“Cry Me a River”, “What Goes Around… Comes Around”) plans to perform in Europe from July and then also give concerts in Berlin, Munich, Cologne and Hamburg.
