Justin Timberlake's Drunk Driving Arrest

https://apnews.com/article/justin-ti...57fe9ef6b7fb18



I have seen the news surrounding Justin Timberlake's DWI and in the mugshot I see someone who looks broken and knows he fucked up pretty badly. After seeing the youtube videos and memes I really wonder is he that hated now and considered washed up? I know Brittany Spears fans don't like him after the allegations in her book. There really is no excuse for drunk driving especially now in the age of rideshare apps like Uber and Lyft.

That was the first thing I thought when I heard the news... you have the money wtf are you doing driving when drunk?!!!

He refused the breathalyzer plus 2 traffic charges (running stop sign and not staying in lane).

Dumbass.

Is life really that hard when you've been married to Jessica Biel since 2012, have two kids, and a net worth of $250 million dollars?

Forget Uber and Lyft. He could have a private driver on staff waiting to take him anywhere. I also don't get it.

Could be he didn't want anyone to know where he was going and what he was doing.

Not defending someone who drives drunk, but isn't this just indicative of being drunk?
People make many horrible decisions because they're drunk - wouldn't driving while intoxicated just be another one of those bad decisions? You're not sober enough to think "I can kill someone"... and "hey, I've got money - let's play it safe and get an uber".... instead you're thinking "I'm not drunk - you're drunk!... now where did I put my car keys?"

Getting a DUI is the best thing he has done since Britney Spears.

Re: Justin Timberlake's Drunk Driving Arrest

I've seen articles like this that have said he's had troubles with alcohol and drugs for years. I found this quote interesting.
https://pagesix.com/2024/06/18/enter...hare-of-drugs/
Sources told Page Six that the 10-time Grammy winner was having dinner at the American Hotel “with a bunch of friends” Monday night and “there were cops stationed outside where he was having dinner.”


Maybe the fall out from this arrest will be some form of Rehab.

I'm always surprised at the number of celebrities who drive around themselves. I'd think that people who are that wealthy would have their own drivers, or at least a personal assistant to shuttle them around. Even when they aren't shitfaced.

He may not be allowed into Canada for his shows later this year unless he can get the charges dropped.

Re: Justin Timberlake's Drunk Driving Arrest

Fame and adulation, especially at a younger age, can fuck a lot of people up when they get older. That said, drunk driving is 100% avoidable and he should know better. He should be thankful he didn't kill anyone, including himself.

In light of the fact that many DUI sentences involve mandatory AA meetings, he may not have a choice

(As someone who's witnessed alcohol addiction up close and personal, I don't like this. Being too drunk and too stupid to call an Uber is not necessarily alcoholism, and I think AA should be just for those who truly can't stop from drinking without outside help)

Timberlake and his wife are allegedly known to host some of the most degenerate "parties" in Hollywood circles. Anything goes. Anything.

Saw one rumor that said tour sales were so bad that this will get him out of the contract. Rehab that is.

I looked at his Instagram account and commenting on any of his posts is limited right now.

He should have been arrested a long time ago for making boring and shitty music.

Re: Justin Timberlake's Drunk Driving Arrest

Cop who arrested him is getting doxed on twitter. As per the ny post he actually pulled over Timberlake and gave him a warning at first before arresting him after a second time pulling him over a short time later.

Wow, both those sentences are pretty stunning actually. What a moron JT was for not getting the message, and what shitty fans would dox a cop for doing his job.

Re: Justin Timberlake's Drunk Driving Arrest

It wasn't fans. It was the NY Post that posted the info of the officer. Feel bad for him. This isn't a $80 pair of pants situation. This officer pulled over a drunk driver.
