Timberlake's arrest for DWI has been making the rounds, and an eyewitness has revealed that the singer was heavily drunk before exiting a party at the Hamptons Hotel.

The source also claimed that the "Selfish" crooner went overboard at some point by drinking the drink of another person who had stepped away to the bathroom.

The anonymous individual said of the star, "He was wasted. At one point, just before closing, somebody got up to go to the bathroom and left his drink on the table."

"When [the man] came back, [Timberlake] was drinking his drink. The guy goes, 'Justin, that's my drink!" the source added, per the New York Post.

Other emerging reports revealed that the cops noticed Timberlake had glassy and bloodshot eyes and reeked of alcohol at the time of the traffic stop.

The singer also failed the field sobriety test, done to test his balance, coordination, and ability to follow instructions, which can be impaired by alcohol or drugs.

When the 43-year-old star was then asked to take a breathalyzer test to confirm blood alcohol levels, Timberlake refused the request three times and was subsequently handcuffed and taken away.

On Tuesday, he was released without bail, but not before being charged to court on one count of DWI. The "Mirrors" crooner was also slammed with a citation for not observing a stop sign and for failing to stay in his lane while driving.

Back in 2019, Timberlake made headlines after he was photographed hand-holding actress Alisha Wainwright, one of his co-stars in his drama film, "Palmer."

The situation gained the singer negative traction at the time, as it made many assume that something inappropriate was going on between the female co-star and Timberlake, who is married to Jessica Biel.

In an open apology letter, Timberlake said it was "a strong lapse in judgment" influenced by the alcohol he had drunk when they were photographed together.

According to Newsweek, he wrote, "I displayed a strong lapse in judgment—but let me be clear—nothing happened between me and my co-star. I drank way too much that night, and I regret my behavior. I should have known better."
