ORIGINAL POST

It disappoints us to tell you that TMZ broke the story now being reported by everyone that Nick Carter of the Backstreet Boys was arrested on Wednesday night, January 13, 2016 in Florida. Carter was arrested around 7 pm at Hog’s Breath Saloon in Key West after he and his friend, Michael Papayans of Palos Verdes Estates, California, came into the bar “heavily intoxicated.” The police report says that the problem began when a bartender refused to serve the two men. The Key West Police Report also indicates that Carter and his friend became “aggressive” and “agitated”

“Papayans and Carter were slurring their words and repeatedly attempted to stand up after being asked to remain seated,” when being questioned by the police, the document states. It appears that the situation became violent after Carter and Papayans refused to exit after being asked multiple times by the staff. Nick Carter, 35, and Michael Papayans, 27 were taken into custody after manager, Art Levin, told law enforcement that he witnessed one of the men throwing a punch at an employee. Papayans also allegedly head-butted an employee and Carter allegedly grabbed a bouncer by the throat .The incident was caught on video thanks to bar security cameras, and eye-witness camera phones. Carter and Papayans were charged with one count of misdemeanor battery.

This sad news comes only month after Nick Carter earned second place in season 21 of ABC’s Dancing With The Stars. It was on that show when it was announced that he and his wife, Lauren Kitt-Carter are expecting the birth of their first child together. PLEASE STAY OUT OF TROUBLE NICK!
