Justin Timberlake’s world tour is disrupted following his felony DWI arrest, with a court date looming on the same day as his show in Krakow, Poland.

Justin Timberlake was arrested and charged with a felony DWI on Monday night after he reportedly ran a stop sign, driving his 2025 BMW erratically in Sag Harbor, New York. He was arraigned in Sag Harbor Justice Court and released on his own recognizance, but now he has a scheduled court appearance on July 26 — the same day he’s set to begin a two-night stand in Krakow, Poland, as part of his world tour.

“[Timberlake], age 43, of Tennessee, was observed operating a 2025 BMW southbound on Madison Street, failing to stop at a duly posted stop sign and failing to maintain his lane of travel,” reads the statement released by Sag Harbor Village Police Chief Robert Drake on Tuesday, the day after the incident. “A traffic stop was initiated by a Police Officer from Sag Harbor Village Police Department and upon investigation, it was determined that Mr. Timberlake was operating his vehicle in an intoxicated condition.”

“Mr. Timberlake was placed under arrest, process, and held overnight for morning arraignment,” Chief Drake’s statement continues. “Mr. Timberlake was arraigned at the Sag Harbor Village Justice Court on June 18, 2024, at 9:30 AM, where he was released on his own recognizance.”

“I look forward to vigorously defending Mr. Timberlake on these allegations,” said Timberlake’s attorney, Edward Burke Jr., in a statement. “I will have a lot to say at the appropriate time, but am currently awaiting full discovery from the District Attorney’s office.”

Justin Timberlake is just starting his global tour to support his sixth solo album, Everything I Thought It Was. The former NSYNC singer is gearing up to play two shows in Chicago this week on June 21 and 22, followed by two more shows at Madison Square Garden in NYC on June 25 and 26.
