In case you missed it, Aaron, 29, was arrested Saturday on suspicion of driving under the influence as well as possession of marijuana. His girlfriend, Madison Parker, was riding passenger in the car and was also taken into custody for alleged marijuana-related offenses. Aaron was released Sunday afternoon after posting bail for $4,610.
His older brother took to Twitter to reach out following news of the incident, writing, “To my brother: I love u no matter what & if u feel the need to reach for help, I am here and willing to help you get better. Family isn’t always easy, be we’re all here for you.”
Nick appeared to responds to the comments by retweeting a note from sister Lauren Kitt Carter, which read, “Hey @aaroncarter have @itsmadisonp text me your new number since you changed it again!”
“Aaron’s been traveling non-stop doing promotions on his latest hit single ‘Sooner or Later’ across the southeast when his automobile had a new tire put on it and it went out of alignment,” the statement read. “Aaron drove the vehicle to the nearest Auto Zone in Cornelia, Georgia. After being at the store and requesting help to get his alignment fixed, he was arrested inside by several police officers with aggression. The police also revoked his rights to have an attorney.”
He continued, “Aaron holds a medical license for medical marijuana for his long standing anxiety. He feels his ‘celebrity’ was targeted and an attorney will be retained in this matter. The video from Auto Zone will prove that Aaron was not in a moving vehicle while arrested and charged with a DUI.”
