The New York Police Department can confirm that pop superstar Justin Timberlake showed little resistance when arrested for drink driving in Long Island last night.

The 10-time Grammy winner was taken into custody at midnight in the wealthy Hamptons enclave of Sag Harbor.

The pop star claimed to have consumed just “one martini” while partying late in the evening at the popular destination for celebrities in the summer months.

The cop who arrested Timberlake was reportedly so young that he didn’t recognise the superstar and was completely unaware that he was in the presence of the one of the biggest pop stars of the 90s and 2000s.

One of the biggest pop stars of the 1990s and 2000s appeared in a Long Island court on Tuesday and was released without bail. He is due back in court on July 26. Photos showed Timberlake in handcuffs at a local police station. His mugshot was later released to the media, and has since been memed into oblivion.

The NYPD says Timberlake “performed poorly on all standardized field sobriety tests” and repeatedly refused to take a breathalyzer. However, when ordered to turn his car off and step out of the vehicle, the gravity was not lost on the multiplatinum white-boy-R&B star.

Police will allege that Justin Timberlake was well aware that it was his best interests to willingly hand himself over to the officers at the scene and was quoted as saying “It feels like somethin’s heatin’ up (c’mon), can I leave with you? (Yeah, my ladies)”

The officers then asked Timberlake if he was carrying any weapons, the musician said he was offended by the suggestion and asked where is the love.

However, Timberlake then went onto commend the officers for their thankless work keeping people safe, telling them that he was impressed frontline workers like them who “deal with things, that you don’t have to (no, no)”

When transported to the police station, the 43-year-old bid farewell to his arresting officers upon being greeted by several senior policewomen at the front desk of the Sag Harbor Police Station.

“Gentlemen, good night,”

“Ladies, good morning (uh-huh), haha”
