21-06-2024 15:00

Police arrest singer Justin Timberlake. He is driving drunk. It happens in the Hamptons, New York.

Timberlake must go to court. He has concerts in Chicago this weekend and New York City next week. Police arrest him on Tuesday morning, just after midnight. They charge him but he can go.

Timberlake speaks about his problems with drinking in the past. On Sunday, he celebrates Father’s Day with his family.

The police do not say any more details about the case. We will know more when Timberlake goes to court.

Difficult words: arrest (when police take someone), charge (when police say that someone does something wrong), case (a specific situation or problem).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

What did Timberlake do on Father's Day and how does this relate to his current situation with the police?
