Justin Timberlake has been released from custody following his arraignment for DWI.

After his arrest for driving while intoxicated or impaired on Long Island, New York, the 43-year-old "SexyBack" singer appeared in court for his arraignment on Tuesday, June 18, and was released from police custody shortly thereafter.

A source tells PEOPLE Timberlake, accompanied by an attorney and two other individuals, was handcuffed "with his hands in front of him" and wore "a black bowling shirt, light jeans and white and baby blue Air Force 1s"during the appearance at a Sag Harbor courthouse. His cuffs were removed after the arraignment.

"He did seem a bit upset," says the source. "Jessica [Biel, his wife] was not with him."

TMZ reports he was charged with one count of DWI and cited for running a stop sign and failure to keep in his lane. Timberlake is next due in court July 26.

A representative for the Sag Harbor Police Department previously told PEOPLE the *NSYNC member was in police custody on June 18 following the arrest. Police are expected to make a statement.

PEOPLE has reached out to a representative for Timberlake for comment.

Police did not confirm charges to PEOPLE, but a source said the Grammy winner was arrested on DWI charges after having dinner at the American Hotel in Sag Harbor. Upon leaving the establishment to drive to his friend's house, he was pulled over, and "nobody was hurt," said the source.
