Justin Timberlake Was Arrested, And The Reactions Are Kind Of Ruthless

Justin Timberlake was arrested earlier this week on suspicion of driving under intoxication.

According to a complaint written by Sag Harbor Village Police Officer Michael Arkinson, it was "ascertained that the defendant was operating said vehicle in an intoxicated condition in that his eyes were bloodshot and glassy, a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage was emanating from his breath, he was unable to divide attention, he had slowed speech, he was unsteady afoot, and he performed poorly on all standardized field sobriety tests," Arkinson wrote.

Justin claimed he had one martini before the arrest, NBC News reports.

News of the events, as well as Justin's mugshot, quickly circulated online and, ultimately, the internet did what the internet does: make jokes and meme the whole situation.
