Further, in his statement after making bail, Aaron attested he was grabbed by police while in an AutoZone store, so they didn’t even have any proof he was behind the wheel.
But new details from the police report seem to debunk that defense.
According to TMZ, police went into the store for him only after the car was seen “driving all over the road and running into the median.” And after they saw his eyes were “blood shot and watery with a glazed look to them,” officers had plenty of probable cause to check Aaron’s sobriety.
Which they did. And he failed.
While he didn’t take a breathalyzer, the younger Carter did participate in a field sobriety test, in which he reportedly lost his balance, failed to track movement with his eyes, and mumbled to himself. Cops even spotted “body tremors” in his arms and legs.
At this time, Aaron’s girlfriend Madison Parker, who was also arrested for marijuana possession, apparently got “belligerent” with police, leading to the obstruction charge.
Sounds to us like the “bad wheel alignment” defense isn’t going to hold up. What do YOU think, Perezcious readers??
