21-06-2024 15:00

Justin Timberlake was arrested for drunk driving in the Hamptons, New York. He has to go to court.

Timberlake has two concerts in Chicago this weekend and two in New York City next week. He was arrested early Tuesday morning, just after midnight. Timberlake spoke before about his problems with drinking.

The court in Sag Harbor will read the charges against him. The news spread quickly in the US media. The Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office confirmed the charges but gave no more details. We will hear more after Timberlake goes to court.

Difficult words: arrest (when police take someone), charge (when police accuse someone of doing something wrong).

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