‘Intoxicated’ Nick Carter Begs Cops To Let Him Go After Bar Brawl: ‘I’m In The Backstreet Boys!’ (Police Video)
“But I’m a Backstreet Boy!”
Nick Carter pleaded for cops to let him off due to his fame as he was getting arrested for brawling in a Key West, Florida bar on Wednesday night.
On police video shown on Youtube, the former boy band star slurs through an explanation of his fame while speaking to a responding officer.
“Sir, my name is Nick Carter from the Backstreet Boys, I’m a f***ing singer,” the boastful 35-year-old says on the tape, around the eight-minute mark. “All I’m asking is a second, and a chance, to rectify the situation and to talk to the owner or manager of this place and to say, I don’t want all this s**t.”
Earlier on, when police ask where he’s staying in the vacation destination, the belligerent star says he’s at a “retort,” instead of a resort.
According to the police report, Carter and Michael Rae Papayans, 27, acted “agitated and aggressive” to staff at the Hog’s Breath Saloon on Wednesday night when bartenders refused to serve the “heavily intoxicated” men.
When they were tossed from the establishment, Carter punched a bouncer.
The has-been singer has a history of alcohol-related troubles. He was arrested for driving under the influence in 2005, and later spent three months in rehab.
In his 2013 memoir, Facing the Music and Living to Talk About It, Carter admitted he’s till “not perfect” post-treatment.
“I still slip up when it comes to drinking,” he confessed.
