Aaron Carter criticizes Georgia law officers after DUI arrest
CORNELIA, Ga. — Aaron Carter feels his "celebrity was targeted" during his arrest on driving under the influence and drug charges in north Georgia over the weekend.
Authorities say the 29-year-old singer was released on bail Sunday. Carter, of Port Richey, Florida, is accused of drunken driving and possession of marijuana and drug-related objects.
In a statement tweeted Sunday, Carter says was arrested inside an auto supply store "by several police officers with aggression." He says he wasn't in a moving vehicle and has a license to use medical marijuana for "long standing anxiety."

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
Habersham County Sheriff Joey Terrell said Monday that since the case is active, he can't comment.
Carter said his next show, set for Monday night at a shopping mall in Birmingham, Ala., will go on as scheduled.
