EXCLUSIVE: Aaron Carter fires back at brother Nick's tweet after arrest: 'Why wouldn't he call me directly?'


Aaron Carter is speaking out following his arrest in Habersham County, Georgia, on Saturday night, and shared some harsh words for his older brother, Nick Carter.

A spokesperson for the Habersham County Sheriff's office told ET that Aaron was arrested on charges of DUI refusal, possession of marijuana less than one ounce, and possession of drug related objects.

On Sunday, Backstreet Boys star Nick Carter, reached out his brother via Twitter, writing, "To my brother: I love u no matter what & if u feel the need to reach for help, I am here and willing to help you get better. Family isn't always easy, [but] we're all here for you."

"If my own blood (Nick) truly cared about my well-being, why wouldn't he call me directly and have a conversation instead of making this about him through a very public forum?" the 29-year-old performer stated. "That's not cool at all to use me for his PR and kick me while I am down."

A rep for the singer told ET on Sunday, "Aaron's been traveling non-stop doing promotions on his latest hit single 'Sooner or Later' across the southeast when his automobile had a new tire put on it and it went out of alignment."

"Aaron drove the vehicle to the nearest Auto Zone in Cornelia, Georgia," the rep continued. "After being at the store and requesting help to get his alignment fixed, he was arrested inside by several police officers with aggression. The police also revoked his rights to have an attorney."

Regarding the charges of possession of marijuana and drug related objects, the rep said, "Aaron holds a medical license for medical marijuana for his long standing anxiety."

"The video from Auto Zone will prove that Aaron was not in a moving vehicle while arrested and charged with a DUI," the rep stated. "He feels his 'celebrity' was targeted and an attorney will be retained in this matter."
