Nick Carter has broken his silence for the first time since being arrested for a misdemeanor count of battery after a bar fight that took place in Key West, Florida earlier this month.

The Backstreet Boys singer took to Twitter to say that he was sorry for his actions and hope that fans will continue to “stay by my side” as he moves forward.

As previously reported by TMZ, Carter and his friend Michael Papayans arrived at a famous bar called Hog’s Breath Saloon on 13th January already drunk.

After they were refused service and asked to leave, Carter allegedly choked a bouncer by the throat while Papayans head-butted another employee. The police eventually turned up and arrested both Carter and his friend.

The day after the arrest, the 35-year-old was released from the Monroe County Detention Center in Key West.

We sincerely hope he gets the help he needs.

Carter is expecting his first child (a baby boy) with his wife Lauren Kitt who he married in 2014.
