>Backstreet Boys member Nick Carter was arrested on Wednesday after a bar brawl in Florida.
According to NBC News, the singer and his friend Michael Papayans arrived to Hog’s Breath Saloon in Key West just before 7 p.m., and appeared intoxicated. The staff refused to serve them and booted them out. That’s when things got ugly.
Witnesses claim that one of the guys tried to punch an employee, followed by Papayans head-butting the bar’s manager. It is also alleged that Nick tried to choke a bouncer.
Cops say the whole thing was caught on tape.
Carter and his friend were arrested for misdemeanor battery and are being held at Monroe County Jail.
Carter, 35, recently appeared on “Dancing with the Stars.” He is expecting his first child with wife Lauren Kitt.
