Nick Carter of The Backstreet Boys was arrested on Saturday on suspicion of drink driving.

Carter was pulled over by police in California when they spotted him making a "traffic violation", the BBC reports.

His publicist explained: "He is on doctor-prescribed medication and was unaware of its interaction possibilities," and that he "deeply regrets the current situation."

Police spokesman Dave Bunetta said: "The officer that stopped him noticed some traffic violation was occurring.

"When he was contacted by the officers, they conducted an investigation which would include field sobriety tests and they formed the opinion he was under the influence."
