The officers asked again, Tarnes began shouting at them that he was Justin Timberlake and that he knew his rights. It was at this time that Tarnes was arrested.

Once arriving at Middletown Police Headquarters, police found out Tarnes' real name.

He is scheduled to appear in court on May 8. He was released on $500 bail.
