Billy Joel is giving his two cents about Justin Timberlake’s recent arrest.

Hours after the “Mirrors” singer, 43, was arrested and booked on DWI charges in Sag Harbor, New York, reporters talked to Joel, 75 at the hotel where Timberlake was last spotted before his arrest.

“Judge not lest ye be judged,” The Piano Man told PIX11 News outside the American Hotel where he grabbed a bite to eat. He also shared with the reporters who had gathered outside of the establishment that he didn’t “really know that much” so in turn he had “no comment.”

In another clip shared to social media, Joel is seen being asked by the PIX11 reporter if he frequents the venue to which he replied, “When I’m here, yeah.”

Timberlake was arrested shortly after midnight on Tuesday, June 18 after he failed to stop at a stop sign in his 2025 BMW. 

"Upon investigation it was determined that Mr. Timberlake was operating his vehicle in an intoxicated condition," a press release from The Sag Harbor Village Police Department said. "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."

According to the police report obtained by PEOPLE, Timberlake "performed poorly on all standardized field sobriety tests" during his arrest and the arresting officer claimed 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."

On June 19, Timberlake’s attorney Edward Burke Jr. said in a statement, "Mr. Burke looks forward to vigorously defending Mr. Timberlake against these allegations.
