Let's take it from the top: A few weeks ago, Justin was arrested in Sag Harbor for an alleged DWI. He's not exactly a beloved figure on the internet these days, so the reactions were swift and brutal.

While Gayle King quickly came to his defense, Justin's wife Jessica Biel reportedly wasn't too pleased about the situation (even though she and Justin allegedly aren't too worried about the legal ramifications).

Justin is also, of course, currently on tour behind his latest album Everything I Thought It Was — and during some of the performances, he's been addressing the recent arrest in, uh, varying tones.

Last week, he told a Chicago crowd, "It's been a tough week...I know sometimes I'm hard to love, but you keep on loving me, and I love you right back. Thank you so much."

So, Justin played Boston's TD Garden last night (he does so again tonight, too) — and according to People, he chose to address his arrest in a different fashion.

"So uh, is there anyone here tonight that is driving, I'm just kidding," he reportedly commented at one point, to the sound of applause and laughter.

Ironically, recent reports claimed that Justin "does his best to set a positive example for himself, [Jessica Biel], his family, and the public, and will continue to try to learn and grow."
