An employee of a Key West, Florida, bar is suing Backstreet
Boys singer Nick Carter over an altercation that resulted in Carter’s arrest.
Skylar Carden is accusing Carter of battery in the lawsuit
filed Monday. Carden claims Carter struck and punched him earlier this month at
the Hog’s Breath Saloon. The lawsuit says Carter and a friend were escorted out
of the bar because of unruly behavior and Carden told them not to return.
Carter previously pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor
battery charge and was released on $1,500 bail. A judge ordered Carter not to
return to the bar. Carter has said he was just enjoying some vacation time.
