Jessica Biel Steps Out In New York City Following Justin Timberlake’s Arrest

Jessica Biel went straight to work after her husband’s arrest in the Hamptons.

The “Better Sister” star showed up bright and early Tuesday on the Manhattan set of her upcoming series, mere hours after Justin Timberlake — with whom she shares two young children — was charged with driving while under the influence in Sag Harbor, New York.

It was the first time that Biel, whose blonde bob complemented her tan and black dress, was seen in public since his arrest. Biel was spotted one day earlier filming in Central Park with co-stars Corey Stoll and Elizabeth Banks, who is also her co-executive producer on the thriller.

Timberlake was arrested around 1 a.m. Tuesday after an officer allegedly saw him fail to stay in his lane and run a stop sign, the Sag Harbor Police Department said in a statement. Footage of him driving mere moments earlier has since been shared by TMZ.

“He had slowed speech, he was unsteady afoot and he performed poorly on all standardized field sobriety tests,” the officer said, adding Timberlake smelled of alcohol, had “bloodshot and glassy” eyes, and repeatedly refused a chemical test on the scene.

Timberlake told the arresting officer that he had “one martini” and was following his friend home, according to court records obtained by CNN. He was arraigned in the morning on one count of driving while intoxicated — and pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The *NSYNC member was released by 9:30 a.m. Tuesday and is reportedly due back in court on July 26. Timberlake, who recently embarked on his first world tour in nearly six years, is notably scheduled to perform in Krakow, Poland, that evening.

“I look forward to vigorously defending Mr. Timberlake on these allegations,” his attorney Edward Burke Jr. told NBC News on Wednesday. “I will have a lot to say at the appropriate time but am currently awaiting full discovery from the District Attorney’s office.”

Biel, who had gushed about Timberlake on Instagram earlier in the week, started dating the singer in 2007. They briefly separated in 2011 but ended the year with an engagement and, after tying the knot in 2012, welcomed sons Silas and Phineas in 2015 and 2021.

“You’re so many things to so many people,” Biel wrote Sunday in a Father’s Day tribute to Timberlake. “But to us you are THE ROCK … we climb on, we lean against. The rock that shades us from the sun. And when we recline on you, as we always do, hopefully our butts will keep you eternally grounded.”

“We LOVE YOU,” she concluded.
