I routinely have to shimmy past a few, uh, incapacitated individuals on my stoop before I can get inside each night and pass out on the couch watching reruns of Designing Women (ain’t Boston glam?!). Photos of Aaron Carter surfaced after a DUI arrest at an AutoZone in Cornelia, GA on Saturday, and, well, let’s just say that looked like a face that had hung around “Aaron’s Party” too long with my neighbors on the stoop.
Aaron sat down with Entertainment Tonight to tearfully talk about his DUI arrest. He says he hasn’t slept in four days and that he’s “been listening to America and Stevie Wonder and the O Brother, Where Art Thou?” soundtrack. Add a glass of Wild Turkey, and Aaron is basically my dad on any given Saturday night!
Aaron says that he prefers to drive, because he’s been afraid of flying since the September 11th attacks – so much so, that he bought a cheap ass car rather than fork over cash to those swindlers at Hertz. I guess they fooled him one too many times on renters insurance! You show them, Aaron! He clearly didn’t go to CarMax because the jalopy needed some TLC even before AutoZone.
Anyway, despite the DUI and being found with less than an ounce of weed, Aaron said he doesn’t drink (his hernia meds mess with him anytime he drinks the hooch!), and the only drug he takes is marijuana, to calm his nerves.
“I’ll occasionally have a sip of a beer or something like that, but I can’t even drink IPAs. I can’t drink anything like that. I have to drink the lightest beer possible that’s not hoppy. I don’t drink any hard liquor.”
He also added:
“No. Nothing. Zero. I am willing to do a polygraph test. I take Xanax, Propranolol for high blood pressure medication, and I took oxycodones for my mouth.”
Aaron sounds like my aunt who says she only has one glass of wine, but really, that sneaky bitch goes around asking for a top off before she ever reaches the bottom (same).
Aaron’s DUI wasn’t his only run-in with Georgia police on Saturday night. Just hours before his DUI arrest, the cops were called to a Walmart in Commerce, GA when Aaron’s credit cards declined while he tried to pay for a tire repair. The smiley service went out the door that day, because employees thought the singer was going to bail on his bill, so they called the fuzz. Luckily, TMZ says a fan offered to pay his $110 tab in exchange for a picture and autograph, which Aaron happily did since Lizzie McGuire isn’t exactly around to help him out these days. Well, we all know what happened after that….
