Video shows Justin Timberlake driving moments before DWI arrest

New video of Justin Timberlake driving shortly before being arrested for allegedly driving drunk has surfaced, showing the pop star in a BMW SUV traveling down Main Street in Sag Harbor, New York. The video, captured by street-cam footage, was taken in the early hours of Tuesday morning. A black vehicle appears on the screen before the gray SUV with Florida plates that Timberlake was driving comes into the frame. Authorities say Timberlake, 43, failed to stop at a stop sign and couldn't stay on the proper side of the road before being pulled over. Timberlake was described as having "bloodshot and glossy" eyes, a "strong odor of an alcoholic beverage was emanating from his breath" and he was "unable to divide attention," according to police documents obtained by Fox News Digital. The former NSYNC member also exhibited "slowed speech" and was "unsteady afoot." He performed poorly on all standardized field sobriety tests.
