Justin Timberlake arrested and arraigned on DWI charges in the Hamptons, NY

Justin Timberlake was been released from police custody after being arrested for driving while intoxicated or impaired in the Hamptons, NY on Monday night.

PEOPLE reported that Timberlake, 43, appeared in court for his arraignment in handcuffs on Tuesday, and was released shortly afterward.  Law enforcement did not confirm Timberlake’s charges to the outlet, but sources told PEOPLE that the singer was pulled over while driving to his friend’s house after having dinner at the American Hotel in Sag Harbor, adding that “nobody was hurt.” NBC News reports that Timberlake claimed he had just “one martini” before he was pulled over; however, according to the complaint written by Sag Harbor Village police officer Michael Arkinson, once police spoke to Timberlake they said it was clear the motorist was not in any shape to drive. Police ascertained that Timberlake was “operating said vehicle in an intoxicated condition in that his eyes were bloodshot and glassy, a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage was emanating from his breath, he was unable to divide attention, he had slowed speech, he was unsteady afoot, and he performed poorly on all standardized field sobriety tests.”  Timberlake was then arrested on suspicion of impaired driving early Tuesday in the affluent Hamptons area of Long Island.

The Sag Harbor Police Department issued a statement reading: “On June 18, 2024, at 12:37 AM, Justin R. Timberlake, age 43, of Tennessee, was observed operating a 2025 BMW southbound on Madison Street, failing to stop at a duly posted stop sign and failing to maintain his lane of travel. A traffic stop was initiated by a Police Officer from the Sag Harbor Village Police Department and upon investigation it was determined that Mr. Timberlake was operating his vehicle in an intoxicated condition. Mr. Timberlake was placed under arrest, processed, and held overnight for morning arraignment. Mr. Timberlake was arraigned at the Sag Harbor Village Justice Court on June 18, 2024, at 9:30 AM where he was released on his own recognizance.”

Timberlake is currently on the road with his first tour in five years, the Forget Tomorrow World Tour, in support of his latest album, Everything I Thought It Was, which dropped on March 15. He is on a brief break in New York this week following his Miami tour stop on Saturday, June 15, and is next scheduled to play Chicago’s United Center on June 21-22, before a two-night stint at New York City’s Madison Square Garden on June 25-26.

Timberlake is due back in Sag Harbor court for a hearing regarding the DWI charges on Friday, July 26.

Sammy Hagar adds second city to 2024 annual ‘Birthday Bash’

Sammy Hagar has announced the dates for his annual birthday bash, and this year he’s adding a second location for the annual festivities.

Hagar, who turns 77 on Oct. 13, already has his annual date set at Cabo Wabo Cantina in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico; however this year the rocker has added an additional date at the Pearl Theater at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. The Vegas bash will take place on Oct. 4 -5, with the Cabo dates taking place on Oct. 11 and 13.

Hagar shares: “Every year we try to do something a little different with the birthday bash shows to accommodate the tens of thousands of requests. So this year this should help a few thousand more people be a part of the birthday shows and the island at the Palms closing for the winter, it’s a double celebration in Las Vegas. I hope everyone is happy with this year’s concept. I can’t wait. What a way to close the year out and flip another number 77 wow 0077 sounds like a lucky one to me.”

The legendary rocker also said in a video announcement: “I’m f**king excited!  Here’s what we do: It’s gonna be two nights in Vegas for 5,000 people. We have the 4th and the 5th in Vegas at the Palms. We’re playing the Pearl, and we’ve got lots of surprises for you. Oh yeah, same thing, surprise jams. Nothing’s gonna change. Then we’re gonna take the party straight to Cabo for the 11th and the 13th.”  Hagar shared of the two birthday bash locations: “That means 5,000 more people get to come to the birthday bash. We usually shut out 50, 60, 70,000 people that try to get in — and we’re closing the island down for the winter. So we’re gonna have a double party. We’ll party at the island all day, jam at the Pearl all night. Me and a bunch of friends, and you know what’s gonna happen. That’s Oct. 4 and 5 in Vegas at the Pearl, Oct. 11 and 13 in Cabo — the two party capitals of the world. And we’re gonna rock the Cabo Wabo!”

You can also catch Hagar on the road for Sammy Hagar & Friends concerts, featuring bassist Michael Anthony, guitar virtuoso Vic Johnson, and acclaimed drummer Kenny Aronoff.  In addition, the Van Halen-focused Best of All Worlds Tour featuring Sagar, Joe Satriani, Michael Anthony and Jason Bonham will travel across North America throughout July and August.

Tickets for Hagar’s Cabo birthday bash will be distributed through a random drawing process; while tickets for the Vegas shows go on sale to the general public on June 21. More information for all Hagar’s tour dates are available at his official website.

Riot Fest 2024 shares lineup including Slayer, Fall Out Boy and Beck

Riot Fest has shared its full 2024 lineup, taking place from September 20-22 at the all-new “RiotLand” at SeatGeek Stadium in Bridgeview, Ill.

Festival organizer Mike Petryshyn (aka “Riot Mike”) wrote a statement on social media last week regarding the future of Riot Fest, stating that it would be moving to a new location from Chicago’s Douglass Park:  “I was tired of Riot Fest continually being the lowest hanging fruit. I was tired of playing their games. I was tired of watching something I love being continually used to deflect away from their own internal deficits. This prevented us from giving you the experience you deserve.”

Slayer, Fall Out Boy and Beck will headline the three-day festival, with the 2024 lineup also including St. Vincent, Public Enemy, Bright Eyes, Dr. Dog, Waxahatchee, Rob Zombie, Spoon, Cypress Hill, Tierra Whack, Something Corporate, The Armed, Beach Bunny, Gel, Drug Church, Taking Back Sunday, Fiddlehead, Basement, Sum 41, and Sublime featuring late singer Bradley Nowell’s son Jakob.

Full album performances this year include the Offspring playing Smash, Manchester Orchestra doing Cope, and Mastodon performing Leviathan. Other noteworthy sets are an Operation Ivy tribute by Laura Jane Grace and Catbite, Bob Marley’s sons getting together to perform his music, and NOFX playing a farewell performance.

Carrie Underwood and family ‘unharmed’ after fire at their Tennessee haome

Carrie Underwood and her family are “unharmed” after a fire was safely extinguished at their Tennessee home on Sunday night. Underwood and her husband, Mike Fisher, live at the remote home in Tennessee with their two sons — Isaiah, 9, and Jacob, 5.

According to local Nashville news outlet WKRN News 2, crews were dispatched to Underwood’s Williamson County property on June 16 after responding to a “fully-involved fire” in the garage that began around 9:40 p.m. Williamson County Fire Rescue stated that Station 21 was dispatched to a fire alarm in that district, with the call upgraded to a structure fire “almost immediately,” according to a post on Facebook that read: “crews from all eight of our stations responded. Fairview fire provided a tanker and crew as well.”

Williamson County Fire and Rescue spokesperson Dinah Wade confirmed to the Tennessean that firefighters were able to douse the fire fast thanks to a 10,000-gallon water tank that was already on the premises, and “were able to knock down the fire quickly to prevent spread into the house. Firefighters continue to put out hotspots to prevent further spread. The cause of the fire is under investigation. There are no injuries at this time.”  The fire appears to have been caused by an off-road UTV and spread into the garage, but authorities are still investigating to determine the exact cause.

A spokesperson for Underwood said in a statement: “there was a fire on the property on Sunday night, which was quickly contained. There was no fire damage to the primary residence, and the family and their pets were unharmed.”

Sean “Diddy” Combs returns key to New York City following request by Mayor Eric Adams

Per a request from New York City Mayor Eric Adams, Sean “Diddy” Combs returned his key to the city last week. Adams requested that Combs return the key after the 2016 video showing the music mogul attacking his ex-girlfriend, Cassie Ventura, went public. The mayor’s office confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that the city received the key on June 10th; Adams initially awarded Combs the key in September 2023.

Adam’s office had originally requested the key’s return on June 4 via a letter from the mayor sent to Combs’ offices in New York and Los Angeles, which stated that Adams was “deeply disturbed” by the attack and added, “I strongly condemn these actions and stand in solidarity with all survivors of domestic and gender-based violence. Our city has worked tirelessly to make sure survivors are heard and seen by our administration.”

Security video from March 2016 obtained by CNN (which the network made public on May 17) shows Combs attacking his ex-girlfriend Cassie in a hotel hallway near an elevator, grabbing her and throwing her onto the ground. He appeared to kick her twice and drag her by her sweatshirt. Later in the footage, he returned to kick her again, and then threw an object from a nearby table at her.

Following the video’s release, Combs apologized on social media, saying he took “full responsibility for my actions in that video” and that he “was disgusted then when I did it, and I’m disgusted now.” Ventura accused him of repeatedly raping and physically abusing her during the course of their relationship in a lawsuit last November, but settled the case shortly after the filing. Combs has since faced multiple new lawsuits this year, accusing him of rape, sexual assault and sex trafficking. He has denied all of the allegations.
