He was released without bail and has a court date scheduled for July 26.

Timberlake left the American Hotel in the area shortly before he was arrested, according to a source with knowledge of the matter.

He is on tour with his most recent album, Everything I Thought It Was, and is next scheduled to perform in Chicago at the United Center on Friday.

Over the weekend, Timberlake wrote a tribute to his two sons and shared his plans for Father’s Day in a post on Instagram.

“I learn more about myself every day just because you both chose me to be your Daddy. I will always be there for you through your peaks and valleys… to lift you up and show you how high you can take this life and to pick you up when you fall,” he wrote.

“And, of course, to flood you with insufferable dad jokes all along the way. I love you both so much. Thank you for giving me my biggest purpose.

“Now… for today: let’s play a game where we all just chill and let Dad watch the final round of The US Open.”

Timberlake, 43, is married to producer and actress Jessica Biel. The couple married in 2012 and are parents to Silas, 9, and Phineas, 3.

Sag Harbor is a village located in the Hamptons on eastern Long Island.
