The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

COR­NELIA, Ga. — Au­thor­i­ties say singer Aaron Carter and his girl­friend have been ar­rested on DUI and drug charges in Geor­gia.

Haber­sham County Sher­iff’s Of­fice spokesman Capt. Floyd Canup says the 29-year-old Carter and Madi­son Parker were ar­rested Satur­day. Carter is ac­cused of drunken driv­ing and pos­ses­sion of less than 1 ounce of mar­i­juana and para­pher­na­lia.

Canup says Parker was ar­rested for ob­struc­tion, pos­ses­sion of less than one ounce of pot and para­pher­na­lia.

Carter’s ve­hi­cle was stopped on a high­way in Cor­nelia, which is about 130 kilo­me­tres north­east of At­lanta.

Carter was sched­uled to per­form in Kansas City, Mis­souri, on Satur­day night. A tweet from his ac­count hours be­fore the show said he wouldn’t make it be­cause of “trans­porta­tion is­sues.’’

Carter is the younger brother of Nick Carter of Back­street Boys.
