KEY WEST, Fla. -- Former Backstreet Boys singer Nick Carter has been arrested in Florida after a fight outside of a bar.

The 35-year-old waited at the Monroe County jail Thursday to make his first appearance on the misdemeanor battery charge.

According to a Key West Police Department report, Carter was intoxicated when officers arrived Wednesday evening at the Hogs Breath Saloon.

The report says a bartender refused to serve Carter and another man, Michael Rae Papayans, 27, of California and staff repeatedly told both men to leave.

Once outside the venue, Papayans allegedly head-butted one employee and Carter allegedly grabbed a bouncer by the throat.

Papayans was also held on a misdemeanor battery charge. It was not immediately clear whether either man was represented by an attorney.
