Jailbird Shocker: Nick Carter Arrested In Florida Bar
Backstreet Boys band member Nick Carter was arrested in Key West, Florida on Wednesday night, Jan. 13, according to multiple reports.
The famed singer was taken into custody after police were called in to investigate an altercation at Hog’s Breath Saloon .
According to the Monroe County Detention Center inmate log, obtained by Yahoo News , the 35-year-old was arrested for one misdemeanor count of battery, though no other information has been released at this time.
Of course, this isn’t Carter’s first visit behind bars — or Florida bars, for that matter.
In 2002, he was arrested in a Tampa nightclub after an alleged “scuffle” broke out .
Later, in 2005, Carter was slapped with a DUI after police pulled him over for driving erratically from a local nightspot in Huntington Beach, California.
The singer pled guilty to the DUI charges and spent three months in a rehab program for alcohol abuse .
Carter’s reps have yet to comment on his most recent run-in with the law.
