According to the outlet, the singer was detained Saturday evening and is facing several misdemeanor charges, including DUI, possession of less than 1 oz. of marijuana and possession of drug-related objects. TMZ reports that Carter refused to submit for testing for suspected DUI.
Carter’s girlfriend, Madison Parker, was in the vehicle and was charged with obstruction and two drug-related charges.
Hours before Carter’s arrest, a message appeared from his Twitter account informing fans that, due to “transportation issues,” the singer would not be able to make a scheduled performance in Kansas City.
In 2016, Carter opened up to Entertainment Tonight about his monthlong stay at the Betty Ford Center in 2011, dismissing “misconceptions” that “I’m a meth head, or I’m a crackhead, or I’m a drug addict.”
“I drink wine,” he said. “I smoke weed. I have anxiety problems, I take medication for anxiety. I mean, it’s just what it is.”
