Justin Timberlake was arrested for DWI in June.

"He was freaking out and stayed up all night when he was in custody," a source spilled to a news outlet. "He's insisting he only had one drink and it wasn't some wild night out."

As OK! previously reported, Timberlake was driving a gray 2025 BMW XM after a night out with his friends when an officer noticed that he failed to maintain his lane of travel. According to the arrest report, the officer quickly determined the pop star "was operating his vehicle in an intoxicated condition."
