The performer and actor Justin Timberlake was arrested early this Tuesday on charges of driving while intoxicated on Long Island, New York, authorities reported.

Timberlake was released later in the morning after being processed in Sag Harbor, on the eastern tip of Long Island. He was charged with one count of driving while intoxicated and his next court date is scheduled for July 26, the Suffolk County district attorney’s office said.

Timberlake’s attorney and representatives did not immediately respond to AP’s requests for comment.

Sag Harbor is a coastal town in the Hamptons, about 100 miles from New York City. In summer, it is a place frequented by wealthy visitors.

As a young man, Timberlake was one of the Disney Mouseketeers, and one of his companions was his future girlfriend Britney Spears. He rose to fame as a member of the band NSYNC and began a solo career in 2002.

As an actor, he won praise for films such as “The Social Network” and “Friends With Benefits.”

He has won 10 Grammy Awards and four Primetime Emmy Awards.

Last year, Timberlake made headlines when Spears released her autobiography, “The Woman in Me.” Several chapters talk about their relationship, including very personal details such as a pregnancy, an abortion and the painful separation. In March, Timberlake released his first album in six years, “Everything I Thought It Was,” where he returns to his future funk sound.

Timberlake has two shows in Chicago on Friday and Saturday, and then at Madison Square Garden in New York on Tuesday and Wednesday of next week.
