Despite claiming to police that he had just "one martini" before his DWI arrest in the Hamptons early Tuesday morning, sources claim Justin Timberlake was actually "wasted."

"At one point, just before closing, somebody got up to go to the bathroom and left his drink on the table. When [the guy] came back, [Justin] was drinking his drink," an eagle-eyed onlooker told The New York Post.

“The guy goes, 'Justin, that’s my drink!’" the source claimed.

Timberlake was arrested in Sag Harbor on charges of driving while intoxicated or impaired. He also received two citations for running a stop sign and failure to stay in his own lane.

According to the arrest report there was a "strong odor of an alcoholic beverage" that was "emanating from [Timberlake's] breath." The pop star-turned-actor refused three attempts at a breathalyzer test and told officers that he only had "one martini" during his night out.

According to NBC News, the 43-year-old was dining and drinking at the historic Hamptons hotspot The American Hotel, which has roots dating back to 1776. It was restored and reopened in 1972.

We don't know what exactly Timberlake was drinking during his rowdy night out, or what he accidentally sipped from the other man's drink. The hotel has an extensive beverage menu that features six pages of spirits, including everything from single malt Scotch whiskies to Armagnacs covering the past 100 years, plus a pricey wine list with bottles going for as much as $5,100.

The actor was visiting the hotel "with a bunch of friends." According to sources for Page Six, "there were cops stationed outside where he was having dinner" and they "pulled out and they pulled him over for a traffic violation."

"His friends were telling the police, 'Let him go, let him go,'" one insider told the outlet.

The cop was "so young" that he allegedly "didn't even know" the Grammy Award-winning Timberlake. "He didn't recognize him or his name," the source claimed.

"Justin said under his breath, 'This is going to ruin the tour.' The cop replied, 'What tour?' Justin said, 'The world tour.'"
