LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Aaron Carter, 34, the former child pop star known for his albums 'Aaron's Party’ and ‘LØVË,’ was found dead in a bathtub at his house in Lancaster on Saturday morning, November 5. Now several reports suggest that the rapper was pulled over by cops on suspicions of driving under the influence just three days before his death.

According to Marca, on Tuesday, November 1, at around 10.45 am, officers from Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department pulled Carter over, whose RV was stopped in Antelope Valley, after receiving a call about a driver who was likely driving while intoxicated. The officers on the scene then conducted a sobriety test and found that he was not drunk or otherwise under the influence of illicit substances at that time.

Do the right thing, that’s what you do.” Prior to that, he also shared a music video shared to that showed the shirtless singer-turned-rapper singing the lyrics, “I’ll tell my honey I’ll be gone but it’s not for long.”

In July 2017, Carter was busted on DUI and marijuana charges in Georgia while in a car with his then-girlfriend, Madison Parker. He was later released on bond. According to USA Today, Carter's publicist, Jonathan Ward, said in a statement at that time that the singer was "traveling non-stop doing promotions... when his automobile had a new tire put on it and it went out of alignment. Aaron drove the vehicle to the nearest Auto Zone (and) 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."
