Justin Timberlake addressed his arrest at his Chicago concert.

"The album didn’t do too well, and I don’t see Justin getting big acting roles right now," a well-placed Hollywood source spilled to a news publication of Timberlake — who released his sixth studio album, Everything I Thought It Was, back in March.

The insider continued: "I just think Justin has a bad reputation in Hollywood as a bit of a jerk and a pain in the a--."

Once stopped by police, "it was ascertained that [Timberlake] 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," the cop's arrest report revealed.

According to the officer, Timberlake claimed he only had "one martini" and refused to take a breathalyzer test.
