Nick Carter is paying the price for his January arrest.

He drunkenly brawled with a bouncer at a Florida Keys bar and was charged with misdemeanor battery. The Backstreet Boys member will reportedly have to perform 25 hours of community service, and pay around $300 in court fees.

TMZ reports:

Prosecutors say they’ll drop the battery charge if Nick completes 25 hours of community service in the next 6 months.

Here’s what’s interesting … Nick seemed pretty wasted at the time of his arrest, outside a popular bar — but prosecutors aren’t banning him from drinking during the 6 month period. However, they do say he should not use booze “to excess.”

Nick’s still facing a civil lawsuit from the bouncer he fought.

Furthermore, his record will be expunged if he stays out of trouble.

As we previously reported, Carter and a friend Michael Rae Papayans arrived already intoxicated at a bar back in January and engaged in a fight with the bouncer. 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.
