The Sag Harbor cop who didn’t RECOGNIZE Justin Timberlake during DWI arrest is a rookie cop


The cop who didn’t recognize Justin Timberlake when he pulled him over for allegedly drunk driving in Sag Harbor is revealed as a rookie officer who’s already made a name for himself in the ritzy Hamptons town despite joining the force just three months ago.   


Officer Michael Arkinson pulled Timberlake over on Monday night after allegedly watching him blow a stop sign and swerve in the right lane.

In his reports, the 24-year-old police officer talked about Timberlake being unsteady on his feet and refusing a breath test.

Hilariously, he’s so young he didn’t seem to know who Timberlake was. 


Arkinson wasn’t even born when Timberlake became a member of the boy band N’Sync in 1995. 

By 2001, Timberlake was a rising star due to the group’s signature hit, ‘Bye Bye Bye’; Arkinson, who is the son of an electrician and school teacher, was just one.


But in the three short months he’s been on the force, he’s already become known for his pull-over attempts, earning himself a nickname of ‘the Sag Harbor Nazi’ and a ‘little red-headed dips**t’ among the Hamptons’ wealthy residents.  

Spencer, a writer from Shelter Island, is one driver who claims he’s had an unpleasant encounter with Arkinson.

He was recently trying to find a parking spot before meeting a friend for dinner in Sag Harbor when he performed a quick U-turn. 

Arkinson pounced when he spotted him make the turn.


‘I was surprised he pulled me over,’ he said. 

‘It was off season, and no one was around. It was a d**khead move. I felt like he pulled me over just for the sake of doing it.’ 

Luckily, he said he was given a ‘warning.’

But, the second time Arkinson wasn’t so nice.

Spencer was driving near the Sag Harbor School when Arkinson pulled him over for talking on his cell phone.

‘I explained to him that I was on speaker and I was just holding my phone, but he told me I should have been using a Bluetooth,’ he said.

He added: ‘I thought he would give me a break, and I was driving less than 25mph trying to get to the Y in East Hampton.’

Instead Arkinson hit him with a $145 ticket that he hasn’t paid.

‘I only had less than 30 minutes to swim. It really interrupted my workout, and lunch plans’ he said. 

‘I think Justin Timberlake was a victim of over-aggressive Sag Harbor police.’
