A source told New York Post column PageSix: “[The cop] was so young that he didn't even know [who Timberlake was]. He didn't recognise him or his name.”

A second insider told the publication: “Justin said under his breath, ‘This is going to ruin the tour.' The cop replied, ‘What tour?' Justin said, ‘The world tour'.”

According to documents seen by , it's claimed the pop star drove through a stop sign, and failed to “keep on the right side of the roadway”.

According to the paperwork, the arresting officer observed Timberlake's eyes were “bloodshot and glassy, a strong odour of an alcoholic beverage was emanating from his breath, he was unable to divide attention, he had slowed , he was unsteady afoot, and he performed poorly on all standardised field sobriety tests”.

After being to a police station, the report was read aloud to Timberlake. He responded: “No, I'm not doing a chemical test.” After being read the report two more times, he replied: “I refuse [to take a chemical test].”

The pop star has been charged with one count of driving while intoxicated. He's also received two citations – one for running a stop sign and another for failure to keep in lane.

Timberlake was held overnight for arraignment and later released on his own recognisance while his driving license will be suspended in the state of New York.

The ‘SexyBack' singer is due back in court on 26.
