Justin Timberlake's tour continues as scheduled despite arrest for DWI, set to resume performances in Chicago and New York City.

Justin Timberlake Can't Stop the Feeling. The singer’s night in custody ended on a sour note. Arrested for driving under the influence, Timberlake reportedly remained quite shaken throughout his time with the police. Despite maintaining he had only "one drink and no wild night," he was held overnight after failing a sobriety test and refusing a breathalyzer. The 43-year-old had been partying late into the night in Sag Harbor on New York's Long Island with friends before deciding to drive while intoxicated on June 18.

Justin Timberlake was ‘freaking out’ in custody

"He was freaking out and stayed up all night when he was in custody," a source told People on June 21. "He's insisting he only had one drink and it wasn't some wild night out,” he added trying to explain his situation.

Previously, a young police officer who detained Timberlake didn't recognise him and reportedly didn't grasp the meaning when the singer muttered under his breath that the arrest "would ruin the world tour." According to the arrest report, Timberlake informed his arresting officer after being pulled over, “I had one martini and I followed my friends home.”

Justin Timberlake was pulled over by the police for driving while intoxicated (DWI) after they saw him allegedly ignore a stop sign and drift in his own lane. The officers thought he might be drunk, and when Timberlake didn't pass a roadside sobriety check and declined to take a breathalyzer, they arrested him. There are reports that Timberlake started to show signs of nervousness while being taken into police custody and the night he was held in jail.

"His eyes were bloodshot and glassy, a strong odour of an alcoholic beverage was emanating from his breath, he was unable to divide attention, he had slowed speech, he was unsteady afoot, and he performed poorly on all standardized field sobriety tests," the report stated.

As scheduled, he will kick off his Chicago shows on June 21 and 22, followed by New York City on June 25 and June 26. The tour will continue until December.
