Arrests

Back in 2002, BJ was arrested for two counts of battery. Bobbie, who was just 20 at the time, attacked two women who she said “jumped” her sister, Angel on Halloween. As per Radar Online, the officer who was assigned there said the Carter sisters were drinking from trick-or-treaters. The officer documented,

[Bobbie] was sticking out the back window up to her waist wanting to exit the vehicle to talk. She was upset saying that three girls had jumped her sister and she protected her. She continued by saying that this is what happens when you mess with her family, adding that they are a close family.

As a consequence, Bobbie was ordered to attend anger management classes and refrain from contact with the victims.

It wasn’t the only time Bobbie was busted. She was arrested for DUI twice, in 2003 and in 2008.

She was Again Arrested in 2023

The Hobby and Lobby loss prevention team informed the Sheriff’s deputies after they saw Carter putting things into her purse and walking out without attempting to pay. She was held on a $500 bond for the theft and a $2000 bond for the possession of drugs. She is due in court on July 10 for the first count and July 13 for the second count.
