A 21 year-old bouncer at the Hogs Breath Saloon in Key West is suing Backstreet Boys star Nick Carter. Gossip Extra claims Carter grabbed Skyler Carden by the throat during a fight outside the bar on January 13th.

Skyler's attorney tells the site: “My client couldn’t breathe as Nick Carter held him by the throat. He was telling my client about being with the Backstreet Boys. That’s didn’t register with my client since he’s just 21. Nick Carter has shown the world that he’s nothing more than a backstreet thug. Mr. Carden was just doing his job to maintain order and didn’t deserve to be attacked. To send him (Carter) that message, we will seek punitive damages against him as allowed by Florida law.”
