Fans are now learning more about the pop star's arrest for allegedly driving while intoxicated.

After spending the night in a Hamptons jail, Justin Timberlake's attorney released a statement obtained by The National Desk.

I look forward to vigorously defending Mr. Timberlake on these allegations. I will have a lot to say at the appropriate time but am currently awaiting full discovery from the District Attorney’s office.

Edward Burke, Jr. who is representing the 43-year-old Grammy winner, was seen walking out of the Sag Harbor New York Police Department with Timberlake on Tuesday.

The mega star was reportedly at The American Hotel before getting behind the wheel of a 2025 BMW in a "intoxicated condition."

Surveillance video captured on the village's live camera feed showed a vehicle matching the description of the SUV that Timberlake was accused of driving.

It was reportedly captured shortly before Timberlake was pulled over by a Sag Harbor police officer at 12:37 a.m.

Court documents alleged the singer failed to stop at a posted stop sign and veered out of his lane for blocks before the police officer conducted a traffic stop.

Timberlake allegedly had slowed speech and unsteady footing. The document also noted he "performed poorly" during a sobriety test.

The booking photo for the celebrity confirmed Timberlake had "bloodshot" and "glassy" eyes, which was also noted in the arrest affidavit.

The officer also described Timberlake's breath smelling of an "alcoholic beverage."

Timberlake admitted to drinking, telling the police officer "I had one martini and I followed my friends home," according to the document.

Another famous singer who was at the same hotel Timberlake was at commented on the arrest when asked by a reporter.

"Nah, judge not lest ye be judged," musician, Billy Joel, told WCBS.

A news release stated Timberlake was released on his own recognizance.

The former NSYNC member pleaded not guilty and has a court hearing next month

Burke Jr. confirmed that the star doesn't need to appear in person for it.
