The mother of Backstreet Boys singer Nick Carter and recently deceased Aaron Carter wound up in the Hernando County Jail following a fight with her husband over a television remote, according to TMZ.
After drinking with an adult family member and getting into a verbal fight that turned physical, the woman was taken into custody on Friday night for domestic violence.
According to TMZ, the woman and her husband got into an argument because she was watching television while playing music so loudly that he could not fall asleep.
The woman allegedly grabbed the man’s wrist when he brought out his phone to record the event, according to sources quoted by TMZ. He then dialed law enforcement at that time.
Deputies allegedly detained the woman after viewing the video captured on the man’s phone.
According to jail records, the woman was arrested early on Saturday and released the same day after paying a $100 bond.
According to TMZ, her husband was unharmed during the argument and refused to be taken to the hospital.
