Justin Timberlake’s “mugshot” after driving drunk

According to TMZ, Justin Timberlake has been arrested after the police stopped his car for a breathalyzer test that ended up coming back positive.

Sources connected to the NYPD have pieced together part of the story for TMZ. Timberlake was supposedly at a party at the American Hotel. When he wanted to leave, he took his car and “almost immediately” after starting he ran a stop sign. That’s when he caught the attention of the police, who started following him.

Timberlake began to swerve and the police ended up stopping the vehicle. Apparently, they gave him a basic sobriety test, asking him to stand on one leg, for example, after which they asked him to take a breathalyzer test. The ‘Everything I Thought it Was’ singer refused. Some of the artist’s friends tried to convince the officers to let him go, but he ended up being handcuffed and taken to the police station. At the time of this writing, Timberlake has already been released. He has been taken to court for running a stop sign and not being able to stay in his lane.
