Aaron Carter Arrested on DUI and Marijuana Possession Charges in Georgia

Aaron Carter was arrested in Georgia on Saturday, July 15, on charges of driving under the influence and marijuana possession, the Habersham County Sheriff's Office confirmed to CNN.

The "Aaron's Party (Come Get It)" singer, 29, was detained at approximately 9 p.m. ET in the county, which is approximately 90 miles north of Atlanta. He was reportedly charged with DUI, possession of less than one ounce of marijuana and possession of drug-related objects.

Police confirmed to ABC News that Carter was in the vehicle with his girlfriend, photographer Madison Parker. She was also arrested and charged with obstruction of law enforcement officers, possession of less than one ounce of marijuana and possession of drug-related objects.

Prior to his arrest, the pop star's management team wrote on his Twitter account that he would not be able to make his scheduled performance in Kansas City on Saturday night "due to transportation issues."

Carter, who is the younger brother of Backstreet Boys singer Nick Carter, was previously arrested for marijuana possession in February 2008.
