Former teen star Aaron Carter and his girlfriend Madison parker have been arrested after he was caught driving under the influence in Habersham County, Georgia.
We recently did a feature on the sad story of Aaron Carter and now the 29-year-old former child star has been taken into police custody under charges of a DUI, marijuana possession of less than an ounce and possession of “drug related objects.”
He was also reportedly charged with “obstruction of law enforcement officers” – which according to TMZ was added to his charges after he refused to take a breathalyser test.
Madison, who was been dating the singer for the past six months, was the passenger in the vehicle while Aaron was behind the wheel.
His management team had announced the cancellation of his Kansas City concert on Saturday due to “transportation issues” – just a few hours before the arrest occurred.
They wrote: “Due to transportation issues, Aaron will not make his set time tonight in Kansas City. He promises to come back soon
“He apologizes to his fans in KC and Mix93.3.”
Ironically, in the hours leading up to the arrest, Aaron had also tweeted: “22 years in the music industry and I think I finally learned how to always be prompt and loyal.”
On Twitter, Madison had publically slammed a car rental dealership for fiving the couple a “mouldy” car and for replacing it with another that caused them to be stranded.
“So after @Avis felt bad after giving us a mouldy car so they comped a new car but within the first 5 min the end tire blew out of the freeway.”
She then added: “@Avis not sure if you do inspection on your cars after they are returned. But my bf @aaroncarter can’t be delaying his shows.”
In the final message, she scathed: “@Avis car gets a flat in the middle of the f***ing freeway1 What’s do we pay you guys for anyone’s? Oh and the last rental needed service.”
The company responded to her messages on Twitter claiming they were unable to locate their contract, and offered to speak to Madison privately in order to resolve the issue.
