Justin Timberlake's Wife Jessica Biel IGNORES His Arrest Drama: Actress Looks Tense As She Returns to Work Following His Wild Night of Drinking

Jessica Biel was hard at work just hours after her husband Justin Timberlake was arrested on DWI-related charges in the Hamptons.

The 42-year-old actress was pictured as she filmed scenes for her upcoming Amazon series The Better sister in New York City.

Biel looked tense and muted while standing around on set between takes.

The set wasn't far from Sag Harbor, the village in the Hamptons where her 43-year-old husband was taken into custody by police after refusing to take a breathalyzer.

Timberlake was pulled over shortly after midnight after he ran a stop sign. Police reportedly followed him and observed his vehicle swerving across the road, leading them to pull him over.

Timberlake reportedly smelled strongly of alcohol once police stopped him.

He performed a field sobriety test, but he reportedly refused to take a breathalyzer test.

The NSYNC singer was subsequently arraigned one one misdemeanor count of DWI, and he was also cited for running a stop sign and for failure to stay in his lane.

His next court date is scheduled for July 26.

Timberlake was pictured on Tuesday in handcuffs as he was led by police, and he was later seen leaving the police station in the Hamptons with attorney Ed Burke.

The same day, Jessica was seen in New York City as she continued filming her Apple series.

She was seen in a costume that she had been pictured in while filming last week.

The actress had her dirty blond hair styled in a severe blunt-cut bob that was parted down the middle.

The look may have been a wig, as she has sported different hair lengths while filming her series.

She wore an equally severe striped bodycon maxi dress. It featured thick, irregular black stripes mixed with semi-sheer tan stripes.

The actress added a touch of luxury to the look with rope-like gold chain draped around her throat.

Biel wasn't completely stone faced, and she appeared to laugh at one moment while chatting with crew members.

She stars in the series with Elizabeth Banks, and the series is based on the 2019 novel by Alafair Burke.

They play two sisters who are brought together by tragedy after one of their husbands is murdered.

Biel was hard at work following a report that her husband is expected to still perform in Chicago this weekend despite his DWI arrest.

The 43-year-old singer–songwriter still plans to put on two shows scheduled for later this week at the United Center, sources with direct knowledge told TMZ.

Timberlake's tour site says he will be playing on Friday and Saturday nights, and the sources say he intends to perform both shows. has reached out to representatives for Timberlake requesting comment.

Fans and attendees are almost certainly curious to hear from the hitmaker about his arrest for driving while intoxicated, but there's no word yet on if he plans to address the controversy.

However, ticket holders can reportedly expect to see essentially the same stage show that he has previously given.

Timberlake has been on tour since April of this year, and his show has been lauded for its high production values, including a hovering platform above the stage that may have been inspired by one of Kanye West's earlier tours.

Timberlake's stag design is even more opulent, as the platform moves around arenas and tilts down, leaving him hanging over the edge, though he's in no danger of falling thanks to a safety harness.

The moving platform even doubles as a massive vertical video screen when its not flying above the audience.

Anyone hoping to see the display at his Chicago shows will have to be prepared to dish out major cash, as it will be difficult to find any cheap tickets.

According to the ticket resale site Gametime, the cheapest tickets for the first Chicago show are going for $81, which includes fees and taxes.

That's in line with major arena and stadium tour prices, but anyone hoping to score prime seats will likely have major sticker shock.

According to the reseller, the top tickets are selling for a whopping $5,897 per ticket.

TMZ added that its sources couldn't confirm if the Cry Me A River singer was still planning on doing his following New York City shows.

He is scheduled to perform at the iconic Madison Square Garden on June 25 and 26, ahead of more shows throughout the Northeast.

It wasn't far from New York City, in the tony Hamptons village of Sag Harbor, that Timberlake was arrested and charged with misdemeanor DWI on Monday night.

He reportedly reeked of booze when police pulled him over.

He refused to take a breathalyzer test at the scene, so his driving privileges have been suspended in the state of New York.

Although Justin was arraigned on the DWI charge, as well as other traffic violations, he has so far remained tight-lipped about his arrest, despite having to spend a night in jail.

He was also cited for allegedly running a stop sign and for failure to stay in his lane. Timberlake, who was released on bail, has his next court date scheduled for July 26.

Although the NSYNC singer has been keeping quiet, fans of his ex-girlfriend Britney Spears have been extremely vocal about the arrest on social media.

'Fans are buying "Criminal" by Britney Spears after Justin Timberlake's arrest,' the X account Britney Stan posted on Tuesday morning, along with a clip from the the pop superstar's music video.

Others pointed out the seeming hypocrisy of Timberlake being arrested for a DWI after allegedly urging Spears to quit drinking.

He never directly addressed the songstress, but her fans have claimed that comments he made in 2007 while accepting a Brit Award were directed at Spears.

'Stop drinking! You know who you are. I’m speaking to you,' he said at the time. 'You are going to get sloppy. OK! Magazine is going to say something bad about you.'

However, Timberlake denied that the message was aimed at Spears during a late interview with GQ.

A rep for the former boy band singer claimed to Fox News that he was simply referencing 'people in the crowd, no one in particular.'

Timberlake has been married to Biel since 2012, and they share two sons: six-year-old Silas and four-year-old Phineas.
