A day after Aaron Carter was arrested for investigation of marijuana possession in Texas, Bob Carter is speaking out about his arrest.
"I'm just totally floored by this," Carter tells PEOPLE. "Other people suspected he had a problem, but I denied it and didn't believe it. But now I feel hurt and betrayed, because I see that everything wasn't what I thought it was."
Carter believes that his son was heading to Georgia to confront him about finances at the time of his arrest. "His new managers are trying to convince him that I'm the reason he's going broke," he says. "It's not true; I don't live off Aaron's money."
A statement released by the singer's manager to Entertainment Tonight, said: "On his way to Florida bringing his two dogs to live on a large ranch, Aaron Carter was detained today in Texas by a trooper for exceeding the speed limit by 5 mph. A search revealed a small amount of marijuana, a misdemeanor in this state. He is posting bail and will return to Los Angeles. He sincerely regrets any embarrassment this caused to his family, friends and fans."
Bob Carter tells PEOPLE that he hopes the arrest will serve as a wake-up call to the 20-year-old star. "Aaron has always thought he was invincible," he says. "Sometimes it takes a knock in the head to get people back on track. I hope that's what happens here."

Now that the wait is over and the new season of The O.C. has finally begun (finally!), we wanted to find out what some of the sexy cast members are really like. So we asked someone on the inside: fellow sexy castmate Melinda Clarke, who plays Julie, hot-to-trot mom of Marissa (Mischa Barton). "Adam Brody kind of reminds me of my husband, in that he's very quick-witted, and he's very creative," Clarke told us at a party benefiting the International Foundation for Terror Act Victims at L.A. hotspot Tokio, hosted by producer-director-writer Chris Weitz (American Pie, About a Boy). "Adam Brody is much more of a man in real life than (his character) Seth Cohen is." As for the girls, Clarke told us that Rachel Bilson, who is "such a cutie," baby-sits for her 4-year-old daughter, Kathryn, on the set, while "Mischa's more of a young, talented lady." Also at the party: Weitz's girlfriend Heather Graham, That '70s Show star Topher Grace, O.C. executive producer McG and Barton's boyfriend Brandon Davis. As for what to expect this season on the show, McG says: "Just be prepared to be taken way down. I think we showed in the finale of Season 1 that we're not afraid to have things not work out. It's not always sunny, and it doesn't always end well. There's a lot of pain and difficulty. It's not like things reconcile immediately and we let the audience off the hook. We're all in this thing together."

DELETED: Days after Janet Jackson's bared breast shocked the nation, NBC has agreed to edit out a brief shot of an 80-year-old woman's breast from Thursday night's episode of "ER." "Though we continue to believe the shot is appropriate and in context, and would have aired after 10:30 p.m. Eastern and Pacific time, we have unfortunately concluded that the atmosphere created by this week's events has made it too difficult for many of our affiliates to air this shot," said an NBC statement.
