Backstreet Boy Arrested. Of course a certain kind of rock station morning jock would follow this up with some sort of gag about crimes against music, but this is NYLPM. We have a soft spot for the Backstreet Boys, as previous “Shape Of My Heart” slush vs edge discussions may have proved. Nevertheless I love the way articles like this always suggest that the singer is going to get the maximum sentence. What has Mr Carter done here? He cheeked a copper. Sure he could get a year in prison for this, but what he will actually get is a $100 fine and have to look a bit sheepish in court. Still good on the lad, he is a boy from the back streets and this is the way we expect such anti-authoritarian figures talk to the rozzers.
