Nick Carter apologizes after bar brawl arrest

Nick Carter has apologized to his fans on Twitter.com following his arrest earlier this month (Jan16) for allegedly fighting outside a bar in Florida.

The Backstreet Boys star was booked by Monroe County Sheriff's Office on 13 January (16) after a brawl broke out outside the Hog's Breath Saloon in Key West.


"I am human and at times it can be a struggle to balance a healthy lifestyle. I'm not perfect and for that I am sorry," Carter wrote in a post on the social media site on Saturday (23Jan16).


Reports suggest the singer and a friend allegedly became embroiled in a bust-up with security guards outside the bar after they were asked to leave the venue.


Carter was released the day after his arrest (14Jan16), and appeared in court on to face a charge of misdemeanor battery. Outside the court, he told reporters that "The truth will come out".


"I'm just a guy trying to enjoy some vacation time in Key West. The truth will come out," he announced.
