Aaron Carter is lashing out at everyone after his arrest, including his brother Nick Carter who tried to reach out to him.
“If my own blood truly cared about my well-being, why wouldn’t [Nick] call me directly and have a conversation instead of making this about him through a very public forum?” Aaron said in the statement he posted to Twitter.
“He feels his ‘celebrity’ was targeted and an attorney will be retained in this matter,” the statement continued.
Thank you ALL for your prayers & well wishes. I am so sorry to all my fans that I missed. The truth will come out! Read my statement here: pic.twitter.com/XaiKqUeXxhAaron Carter (@aaroncarter) July 17, 2017

Original story (7/15/2017 at 10:00 a.m. ET):
"Aaron's Party" is about to get a damper on it.
Aaron Carter has been arrested on alleged DUI and marijuana charges, according to multiple reports — the same night fellow pop star Justin Bieber got in trouble with the law.
Aaron was pulled over on July 15 in Georgia.

According to TMZ, the 29-year-old was charged with "driving under the influence, possession of less than one ounce of marijuana and possession of drug-related objects."
He also refused to undergo a breathalyzer and drug test to determine whether or not he was driving under the influence.
Hours before the arrest, the former teen pop star tweeted that he would not be able to make a show that night in Kansas City due to “transportation issues.”
Due to transportation issues, Aaron will not make his set time tonight in Kansas City. He promises to come ... https://t.co/ClRJxaiGoZAaron Carter (@aaroncarter) July 15, 2017
On the same night, another singer got into some trouble with the law as well.
Justin Bieber was pulled over by police for using his cell phone while driving on Saturday, July 15.
The singer was behind the wheel of a Mercedes G-Wagon in Beverly Hills when an officer spotted him using his device and pulled him over.
Law enforcement sources told TMZ he was issued a citation for using his phone while driving.
It isn't clear if he was calling or texting at the time.
Justin, 23, was calm and cooperative and accepted the ticket without further incident.
In Beverly Hills, the average cell phone ticket fine costs $162.
The incident came just a month after the "Never Say Never" hitmaker vowed to stay on the right path and not to end up behind bars ever again.
Justin has had a number of run-ins with the law in the past and shared two mug shots from his 2014 driving under the influence arrest on Instagram and vowed "never again" to find himself in a similar position.
The 'Sorry' singer captioned the Instagram post: "Mugshot #jailsnotacoolplacetobe, #notfun#neveragain (sic)."
Justin, who was just 19 at the time of his arrest, faced multiple charges when he was arrested for Driving Under the Influence (DUI), resisting arrest, and driving with a suspended license.
This came after he was caught drag racing in Miami Beach in a yellow Lamborghini three years ago.
It's not the first time the "Love Yourself" hitmaker has shared an old mugshot on the photo sharing app either.
In April he shared another snap from his 2014 arrest alongside a more recent picture.
He wrote at the time: "I LOVE THIS because it reminds me IM NOT EXACTLY WHERE I WANT TO BE BUT THANK GOD IM NOT WHERE I USED TO BE!! THE BEST IS YET TO COME DO YOU BELIEVE IT? (sic)."
Justin has been a controversial figure since shooting to fame with his single "Baby" in 2010 and has had a number of issues with the law, paparazzi and fans.
