Aaron Carter gave Entertainment Tonight the details of his arrest in Georgia on Saturday night. He was charged with DUI refusal, possession of marijuana less than one ounce and possession of drug related objects.
Carter, 29, cried during the interview and said he’s been unable to sleep since Saturday.
Carter said that he and his girlfriend Madison Parker were in North Carolina for a club appearance on Friday. He bought a cheap car to avoid wasting money on rentals. He doesn’t like flying after witnessing the World Trade Center buildings get hit on September 11, 2001. The cheap car Carter bought was apparently in bad shape so he stopped at an AutoZone to get its alignment fixed.
"Somebody said I was driving recklessly on the road, that's what the police report said, but the alignment was off on my car, so I went to AutoZone to see if I could do anything about it. A motorcyclist reported that I was swerving all over the road, but the alignment was off a little bit on the new tire."
They approached him while Carter was inside the AutoZone.
"[They] forcefully grabbed me out," he claimed. "[I] stepped outside. I say, 'I invoke the right to speak to my attorney,' and they disregarded that, they revoked that immediately. They said, 'Is there anything illegal in the car?' I said, 'I have marijuana in the car.'"
Carter claims he has a license for marijuana. He said he smokes marijuana for his anxiety, pain and to eat and that. He’s also on pain medication for a jaw injury, Carter said.
"I take Xanax, Propranolol for high blood pressure medication, and I took oxycodones for my mouth."
He denies he's ever smoked meth, or taken heroin.
