BackStreet Boy Nick Carter was arrested in Florida on Wednesday night. The cops laid him down on one of the back streets to cuff him. Yeah.. we said it!

According to our friends at TMZ, an eyewitness on the scene said cops took Nick into custody down in Key West at the Hog's Breath Saloon -- a pretty famous bar in the area. Apparently Carter was maybe a little inebriated and got himself into a bit of a scuffle. The real laugher was that his arrest docs listed his occupation as "none." Humble, hiding or unknown to the cops generation? Who cares. A Backstreet Boy acted like a boy.

Anyway, check out the pic of Nick face down in the back street courtesy of our friends at TMZ!
