Former Backstreet Boys singer Nick Carter has been arrested in Florida after a fight outside a bar.

The 35-year-old was held early on Thursday at the Monroe County jail, waiting to make his first appearance on a misdemeanor battery charge.

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

The report says a barman refused to serve Carter and Michael Rae Papayans of Palos Verdes Estates, California, who became agitated and aggressive. The bar's staff repeatedly told both men to leave.

According to the report, once outside, Papayans headbutted one employee and Carter grabbed a bouncer by the throat.

Papayans, 27, was also held on a misdemeanor battery charge.
