Nick Carter of the Backstreet Boys was arrested in Florida after engaging in a bar fight.

The 35-year-old singer was held in Monroe County jail into the early hours of Thursday (Jan. 14, 2015) after a bartender refused to serve him and his friend Michael Rae Papayans at Hogs Breath Saloon in Florida.  According to a Key West Police report (via ABC News), Carter and Papayans were already intoxicated when they arrived to the bar on Wednesday evening.

Witnesses and staff say that Papayans headbutted the bar manager and Carter grabbed the bouncer by the throat. Both men were arrested on misdemeanor battery charges, and Carter remains in custody as of Thursday morning.
