Aaron Carter‘s arsenal is not going to be taken from him … at least not however, but that could transform if authorities make a decision he’s mentally unfit to personal firearms.
Carter has been erratic lately … good friends and loved ones have been so worried they’ve known as police to do welfare checks.
Law enforcement sources inform TMZ … till a court, board, commission, judge or other lawful authority determines Aaron suffers from a mental illness or situation that causes him to be a danger to himself or other folks, he can preserve his guns.
If this had been to come about, we’re told Carter would possibly be asked to voluntarily hand more than his weapons initial, but then if he failed to comply … ATF could seize his collection.
That mentioned, the L.A. County Sheriff’s Dept. tells TMZ the Dept. is investigating the complete matter and dealing with Aaron’s loved ones members who have expressed concern and even alarm.
Aaron spoke with TMZ Monday, telling us cops responded to a get in touch with Monday evening and showed up at his property with the intent of taking him away on a 5150 psychiatric hold.
The singer says he warned deputies he had loaded weapons scattered about his property, but he also convinced them and a mental evaluator he was not a danger to himself or other folks.
He also claims he does not know who sent the authorities to his property, but one particular issue he’s clear about — he’s not going to give up his guns simply because he says he fears for his security.
Aaron’s been adamant with us lately that he’s mentally steady, in spite of going on “The Physicians” and rattling off that he’s been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. When he spoke to us Monday, he refuted that and claimed he’s passed all the mental overall health checks to personal a gun.
So, for now … he remains locked and loaded.
