Timberlake's jokes about his arrest come not long after his arrest in Sag Harbor, New York when police saw that he was unable to "keep on the right side of the roadway" and drove through a stop sign.

The arrest report revealed that Timberlake allegedly "performed poorly on all standardized field sobriety tests" and refused a breathalyzer test.

Timberlake was subsequently charged with one count of DWI and two citations for allegedly running a stop sign and failure to stay in lane.

He was arraigned the day after and released without bail. However, the "Sexyback" singer allegedly insisted that he only had one martini at the party before his drive. His next court date is scheduled for July 26.
