According to a report from TMZ, Aaron Carter actually had a run-in with the cops just days before his passing.

The 34-year-old was reportedly pulled over after authorities were alerted to an RV weaving in and out of traffic.
Aaron Carter pulled over for suspected DUI days before his death
Per TMZ‘s report, Aaron Carter was pulled over on Tuesday around 10:45 A.M. He was driving an RV at the time when the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department received a phone call that the driver of the RV was weaving into traffic and the witness suspected the driver was under the influence of alcohol or some other substance.
When officers first pulled him over, they had no idea it was Aaron Carter driving the RV. After learning who it was, they conducted field sobriety tests. These tests determined that Aaron was not under the influence of anything at the time.
Per TMZ, it was reported to be a very windy day in Antelope Valley. So, it is possible the wind was just causing the RV to sway in and out of traffic. Pictures obtained by TMZ, reveal Aaron locked his keys inside the RV and used the roof hatch to get back inside. It is unclear who alerted authorities. Is on and off girlfriend, Melanie Martin, was driving behind the RV at the time in a white Range Rover.
Aaron Carter later posted about the incident on his Instagram: “When you do the right thing, you don’t get in trouble. Do the right thing, that’s what you do.”
