Aaron Carter Arrested for DUI, Lashes Out at Older Brother, Nick
Troubled singer Aaron Carter was arrested this weekend after cops found him with marijuana and he refused to take a breathalyzer test.
His DUI refusal, possession of the weed and some “drug-related objects” were all misdemeanor charges for Aaron, who tweeted that he was having “transportation issues” on his way to a Kansas show after the arrest. He has since posted his $4,610 bail, but his fiancée, Madison Parker, remains in jail with a $4,360 bond. Aaron has tweeted he will go back for her.
News of the arrest got his older brother, ‘Backstreet Boy’ Nick Carter, worried. Nick promised unconditional love and used twitter to get his message across, “If u feel the need to reach for help, I am here.”
Aaron was not having it and lashed out at his brother for the tweet. He professed his innocence of all charges, and claimed he was arrested after stopping into an Auto Zone store in order to fix a car tire low on air. He added that he has a license for medical marijuana for his anxiety and feels he had been “targeted” for his “celebrity” and pledged that a lawyer will be involved.
Aaron tweeted: “If my own blood (Nick) truly cared about my well-being, why wouldn’t he call me directly and have a conversation instead of making this about him through a very public forum?” Aaron said in his statement. “That’s not cool at all to use me for his PR and kick me while I’m down.”
