Backstreet Boys star Nick Carter was arrested on Wednesday night after a drunken bar brawl.
TMZ has revealed the 35-year-old and a friend were both wasted when they were beat up by bar staff at Hog’s Breath Saloon in Key West, Florida bar on Wednesday night before getting arrested.
Nick was allegedly trying to choke a bouncer after he arrived drunk at the bar with friend Michael Papayans.
According to a police report obtained by TMZ, bar staff told police Carter and his pal were hammered when they arrived to the bar before 7 PM.
Bar workers say they refused to serve the guys and then kicked them out when they became angry with the bartenders.
Which is when things got violent.
Witnesses and staff told cops one of the guys tried to punch an employee, Papayans headbutted the bar manager and then Carter grabbed a bouncer by the throat.
Cops say when they arrived on the scene both guys were already restrained by staffers and Papayans had blood all over his hands, face and knees.
Both men were arrested for battery and Carter is still in custody.
