Aaron Carter has shared his side of the story following his arrest in Georgia over the weekend.
Police stopped the 29-year-old singer and his girlfriend Madison Parker after they pulled into AutoZone in Cornelia, Georgia, to fix a misaligned tyre en route to his planned gig in Kansas City on Saturday night.
Aaron was subsequently charged with driving under the influence, possession of less than one ounce of marijuana, possession of ‘drug-related objects’ and obstruction of law enforcement officers.
He was later released from jail on $ 4,610 bond.
On Tuesday, the US singer gave a tearful interview and also responded to fans who said they were worried by his appearance in his mugshot.
He tweeted saying that he “will not tolerate such lies about me regarding drug use with alleged meth, heroine and crack – it’s not funny!”
While speaking to Entertainment Tonight , he broke down in tears as he explained that he had bought a cheap car to travel between gigs rather than rent one.
“Somebody said I was driving recklessly on the road, that’s what the police report said, but the alignment was off on my car, so I went to AutoZone to see if I could do anything about it,” he said.
“A motorcyclist reported that I was swerving all over the road, but the alignment was off a little bit on the new tire.”
He said when he was in AutoZone, police approached him.
Aaron said he doesn’t drink and only smokes marijuana to help his anxiety, chronic pain and to also increase his appetite.
“I do not drink alcohol at all,” he said, before adding: “I’ll occasionally have a sip of a beer or something like that, but I can’t even drink IPAs…I don’t drink any hard liquor.”
He continued: “I do not drink.
“Hire a polygraph person, a professional. Strap me up.”
