Justin Timberlake appears to have poked fun at his recent legal troubles during his latest concert in Boston.

On Saturday, June 29, the 43-year-old Grammy winner spoke to his Forget Tomorrow World Tour crowd at the TD Garden, when he seemed to allude to his June 18 DWI arrest with a brief joke.

"So uh, is there anyone here tonight that is driving and ... no I'm just kidding," Timberlake said, apparently nodding to his arrest over a week before in Sag Harbor, New York, for allegedly driving while intoxicated.

Timberlake's brief one-liner prompted an uproar of laughter and applause in the nearly 20,000-capacity arena, before he asked his real question: "Is there anyone here tonight, that it's your first time here to the show? Is there anybody here that you've been to 1, 2, 3, maybe 4 of our shows?"

"For all of you that it's your first time tonight — on a serious note — I hope that you feel the fellowship and the love," he continued.

The *NSYNC alum then used the remainder of his speaking intermission to reiterate some of the points he already made during a few other shows — specifically, his June 22 gig at Chicago's United Center, where he acknowledged fans who he's "grown up with."

"For those of you that have been with me through all the weird haircuts ... don't act like y'all didn't have bad haircuts! I took one for the team. Maybe like 3 or 4 for the team, but who's counting," Timberlake said in Boston. "But it's been almost three decades together, you guys."

Timberlake's latest onstage comments arrive almost two weeks after his June 18 arrest, when the pop star was pulled over after leaving the American Hotel in Sag Harbor and charged with one count of DWI and two citations. Timberlake's citations were for allegedly running a stop sign and failure to keep in lane.

He's due back in court on July 26, however, PEOPLE has learned the hearing will be virtual, and that Timberlake's lawyer will attend on his behalf as the singer will be on tour in Europe at that time.

Per an arrest report obtained by PEOPLE, an officer spotted Timberlake's 2025 BMW "fail to keep on the right side of the roadway” and drive through a stop sign. After a traffic stop, the officer claimed Timberlake "performed poorly on all standardized field sobriety tests."

According to the report, the singer told authorities, "I had one martini and I followed my friends home."

Timberlake’s attorney, Edward Burke Jr., said in a statement on June 19: “Mr. Burke looks forward to vigorously defending Mr. Timberlake against these allegations. He will have a lot to say at the appropriate time. He is currently awaiting full discovery from the DA’s office."

A source told PEOPLE on June 27 that Timberlake and his wife, Jessica Biel, are focused elsewhere following his arrest and "have faith in their legal team and continue to focus on work and their family instead."

“They’re always supportive of each other’s careers,” the source added. “Jess would never miss a show when she’s able to attend. She’s excited for him. They’ve moved on from the arrest.”

The insider's comments came after Biel, 42, was spotted dancing in the crowd during her husband's tour stop at Madison Square Garden in New York City on June 25.

Timberlake hits the stage again at the TD Garden on Sunday, June 30.
