Justin Timberlake jokes about drink-driving arrest during Boston concert

Justin Timberlake made light of his recent drink-driving arrest during his concert in Boston over the weekend.

The SexyBack singer poked fun at his recent legal drama as he addressed the crowd at Boston's TD Garden arena.

"This is my favourite part of the show. I just get to stand in the middle and soak up this moment and look at all of your beautiful faces. Wow, Boston," he began, according to videos posted on social media.

He then referenced his arrest by quipping, "So, is there anyone here that is driving? No, I'm just kidding."

The crowd laughed and cheered in response to the joke. After their screams died down, Justin asked, "Is there anyone here tonight that it's your first time visiting the show?"

The pop star was arrested in Sag Harbor in The Hamptons, New York in the early hours of Tuesday 18 June after being pulled over by police officers. He was charged with one count of driving while intoxicated (DWI) and two traffic citations for running a stop sign and failing to keep in lane.

Timberlake's lawyer subsequently said he was looking forward to "vigorously defending" the 43-year-old singer, who is next due in court on 26 July.

The pop star, who is currently on his Forget Tomorrow World Tour, addressed his arrest days later during his show in Chicago.

"It's been a tough week, and you're here and I'm here, and nothing can change this moment right now," he said. "I know sometimes I'm hard to love, but you keep on loving me and I love you right back."

The tour continues in Baltimore, Maryland on Wednesday.
