Justin Timberlake has set social media alight with memes over his Sag Harbor DWI arrest. 

The singer, 43, was arrested after he ran a stop sign while behind the wheel of his BMW X7 in the early hours of Tuesday morning after a night out with friends. 

Police described him as having ‘bloodshot and glassy’ eyes, smelling strongly of alcohol, having slowed speech and unable to maintain his attention.

After reports emerged Justin had told officers at the scene he had ‘just one martini’ before ‘following his friends home’, it opened the floodgates for dozens of memes to be created.

Fans made jokes about the size of the martini glass and his famous dance moves came back to haunt him after he failed the field sobriety test. 

One wrote: ‘Why does Justin Timberlake look so hungover if he only had ONE martini? The martini…’, alongside a gif of a giant martini glass being carried over to a table.

Others uploaded memes of bartenders generously pouring alcohol into a cocktail glass. 

They wrote alongside it: ‘The bartender that made Justin Timberlake’s one martini’ and ‘Actual footage of the bartender, making Justin Timberlake’s one martini’.

Another fan compared him to Eddie Redmayne’s Cabaret performance at the Tony Awards and wrote: ‘Justin Timberlake claiming he had one martini’. 

The father-of-two was also said to have been unsteady on his feet and ‘performed poorly’ on a field sobriety test, which he ultimately failed. 

Sobriety tests often include being asked to walk heel-to-toe in a straight line and turn or stand on one leg. 

Fans joked Justin, who was famous for his impressive dance moves on stage, could have recreated one of his routines when asked to walk in a straight line.  

 ‘Sir I’m gonna need you step out of the vehicle and walk in a straight line’ alongside a photo of him dancing and body locking on stage. 

After being arrested and taken to a local police station, Justin also refused to take a breathalyzer test. 

One meme made reference to Justin’s wife Jessica Biel and how he would have to explain his arrest. Captioning a photo ‘sad telephone call’ they added: ‘Justin Timberlake trying to call Jessica Biel from stage.’ 

Another shared compared Justin’s mugshot to Skipper from Madagascar with bloodshot eyes.

After a brief arraignment where he was banned from driving for a year in the state of New York, he was released without bail. 

For refusing the breathalyzer test, Justin had his driving privileges in the state of New York suspended. 

The singer looked shell shocked as he emerged from court wearing a baseball cap. 

A police report obtained by DailyMail.com says the ‘Sexy Back’ singer was pulled over after he blew past a stop sign after leaving the restaurant. 

Officers said in their report they witnessed the pop star veering across the road before they intervened, and described finding him ‘in an intoxicated condition’.

The pop star has two upcoming shows in Chicago later this week followed by back-to-back nights at Madison Square Garden in New York City next week.

A source told DailyMail.com: ‘Justin was out to dinner with friends and there were cop cars stationed outside the restaurant, like they are most nights. 

‘They look for people who are leaving after midnight who might have been drinking.’

‘Justin left at 12:30AM and was pulled over as soon as he left. Nobody was hurt and there was no drama at the scene.’ 

The singer, who is often referred to as the ‘Prince of Pop’, is married to actress Jessica , having tied the knot in 2012.

The actress used her Instagram to wish Justin a Happy Father’s Day on Sunday after she was spotted filming in New York City last week.
