Justin Timberlake's Attorney Vows To 'Vigorously' Fight The DWI Charge

Justin Timberlake is glassy eyed on his mugshot after being arrested for driving while intoxicated (DWI) in Sag Harbor, NY.

Timberlake is scheduled for a virtual trial on July 26 and faces up to one year in jail if convicted.

According to People magazine, the singer will likely not appear in court, and his attorney Edwin Burke Jr. is expected to stand in for him.

Timberlake's trial will cause some hiccups as it clashes with his "Forget Tomorrow World Tour" stop at the Tauron Arena in Kraków, Poland. However, his attorney has vowed to "vigorously" defend him against the allegations.

"I look forward to vigorously defending Mr. Timberlake on these allegations," Burke told Deadline 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."

An Anonymous Person Called The Cops On Justin Timberlake

During a chat with the New York Post, a local businessman claimed that someone gave the cops a heads-up about Timberlake being intoxicated prior to the singer's DWI arrest.

"[They] said Justin was having a lot of drinks, and they told the cop to watch him if he is going to drive," the restaurateur told the outlet.

The information from the person likely led a young cop to issue a warning to Timberlake minutes after he exited the hotel and drove off in his car.

Reports have confirmed that after the warning, the singer opted to continue driving and not call for an Uber. He was later arrested after blowing past a stop sign and swerving recklessly between lanes.
