The cop who stopped Justin Timberlake seems to be a local hero. The Sag Harbor cop, Michael Arkinson who had stopped the What Goes Around... Comes Around singer as he jumped a signal, also happens to be the officer who saved a local resident’s life. 

As per reports, the local was overdosing, when the young officer had done his job excellently as a police officer.

Shocking news broke out in the media about Justin Timberlake’s arrest. While the music industry was worried about the world tour of the former NSYNC member, hoping to hear continuous updates about him, a local hero was ignored in the hyped-up reports. 

Michael Arkinson, who happens to be the arresting officer of the Can't Stop the Feeling! singer, is also a cop who had saved a local from overdosing. 

As per a report by Page Six, who had published the words of an insider, Arkinson had saved a young “25-year-old from an overdose.” 

The reports read that the incident had occurred a week before the Timberlake arrest happened and that Arkinson gave the overdosing resident “Narcan.”

For those unversed, Narcan is a treatment that reverses the overdosing process. This treatment has been offered by New York City in an attempt to combat the fentanyl and opioid crisis.
