Aaron was not pleased with his Nick’s comments and released the following statement on Twitter: “If my own blood truly cared about my well-being, why wouldn’t he call me directly and have a conversation instead of making this about him through a very public forum? That’s not cool at all to use me for his PR and kick me while I am down. I love my family despite it through thick and thin.”
As part of the same statement, he also thanked his fans for their prayers and support and spoke out regarding his side of the story.
“Aaron’s been traveling non-stop doing promotions on his latest hit single ‘Sooner or Later’ across the southeast when his automobile had a new tire put on it and it went out of alignment,” the statement read. “Aaron drove the vehicle to the nearest Auto Zone in Cornelia, Georgia. After being at the store and requesting help to get his alignment fixed, he was arrested inside by several police officers with aggression. The police also revoked his rights to have an attorney.”
He continued, “Aaron holds a medical license for medical marijuana for his long standing anxiety. He feels his ‘celebrity’ was targeted and an attorney will be retained in this matter. The video from Auto Zone will prove that Aaron was not in a moving vehicle while arrested and charged with a DUI.”.
“Aaron and girlfriend Madison are continuing their travels and deeply apologize for any inconvenience this legal matter may have caused his fans along the tour dates he has not been able to make,” the statement continued.
“Lost dates will be made up. His next stop will be in Alabama as scheduled Tuesday, July 18, 2017.”.
