TMZ was the first to report the incident.


An eyewitness on the scene told TMZ that police took the boy band member into custody down in Key West. He was allegedly involved in a “scuffle” at a famous bar called Hog’s Breath Saloon.

Police showed up to investigate what was going on in the bar and Carter ended up getting arrested. It is unclear if he will end up facing any charges.

In addition to the report, TMZ revealed that Carter was arrested at 8:13pm and booked for misdemeanor battery.

The site also said revealed that even though he is the member of one of the world’s popular boy band, his occupation was listed as “none” in the arrest docs list.

This isn’t the first time that Carter got arrested in Florida. Back in 2002, he was busted in Tampa for refusing to follow police orders to leave a nightclub called Pop City. At the time, he was charged with a misdemeanor count of resisting and opposing a law enforcement officer without violence.
