Former Backstreet Boys star Nick Carter is determined not to follow ex-girlfriend Paris Hilton to prison because his run-in with the law has taught him to be a good guy.
The pop singer was arrested for drink driving in California in March 2005 and he insists he'll never do anything that stupid again.
He tells People magazine, "I got a DUI, I did the classes and I went in and did my AA meetings that they made me do.
"I will never ever get behind the wheel and drink again. I learned so much and it was so good for me.
"I did everything I was supposed to do when they told me to do it. It helped me so much."
