Aaron Carter was arrested for suspicion of DUI and drug possession on Saturday in Georgia.
On Sunday afternoon, brother Nick Carter tweeted out what appeared to be genuine support. On Sunday night, Aaron Carter released a statement about the arrest and took the opportunity to call out his brother’s statement in the statement. He also said his “celebrity was targeted” and that video from a Cornelia, Georgia, AutoZone will prove he was not in the car when arrested.

Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself— Aaron Carter (@aaroncarter) July 17, 2017
