No No No. Beyonce Ex Friend & Former Destiny’s Child Member Arrested
Former Destiny’s Child member Farrah Franklin is making headlines this weekend after finding herself in handcuffs for disorderly conduct in South Carolina. Details of the unexpected arrest surfaced online Sunday (July 20) afternoon.
Ex-Destiny’s Child singer Farrah Franklin was arrested in South Carolina early Sunday morning for disorderly conduct … TMZ has learned and our sources tell us alcohol was definitely involved. Franklin — who who spent 5 months with the group in 2000 before Beyonce and Kelly Rowland gave her the boot — was booked into the Horry County Detention Center in Conway around 5AM. (TMZ)
Franklin’s time in police custody was short-lived after she posted up bond.
Hours before, Franklin happily posted a picture on the beach. She was released Sunday afternoon on bond. This is not Franklin’s first arrest for flying off the handle. She was popped in 2011 in L.A. for disorderly conduct … and we’re told booze was also involved. She claimed she was the victim of racial profiling.
According to reports NFL player Da’Quan Bowers flew Franklin to Myrtle Beach where she partied and hung out with Bowers and fellow NFL player Ricky Sapp. The three went back to Sapp’s place after a night of drinking where it became apparent that Farrah was likely doing way more than just drinking. Reports say Farrah took several trips to the restroom and would stay there for an extended period of time. That, along with Farrah reportedly going nuts on them, screaming and slamming doors, lead the Ballers to call the police under the suspicion that she was on drugs.
After cops were called Farrah fled. She was found by police laying in a neighbors lawn where she said she planned on sleeping in the woods. Cops arrested her and say she appeared intoxicated and unsteady on her feet.
Farrah was booked and arrested on disorderly conduct. This isn’t her first DC arrest either. The singer was also booked for disorderly conduct back in 2011.
