A former Destiny’s Child member spent the weekend in jail, courtesy of a disorderly conduct charge, authorities in South Carolina say.
Farrah Franklin (pictured on the left above) was reportedly juiced on alcohol when she was apprehended in Horry County, S.C., tmz.com reports, which marks the second time that Farrah Franklin has been arrested for the same charge.
Beyonce and Destiny’s Child fans will remember that Franklin spent about five months with the group in 2000, and was featured on the monster smash hit and accompanying video, “Say My Name,” before she was tossed out the group by manager/father Mathew Knowles.
Franklin was booked into the Horry County Detention Center in Conway around 5 a.m. and was subsequently released Sunday afternoon on bond.
This is not Franklin’s first entanglement with the law on public drunkenness. The singer was busted in Los Angeles County in 2011 for disorderly conduct — and she had been reportedly drunk then as well. Franklin attempted to pass off that incident as a case of racial profiling.
Police in South Carolina did not indicate what prompted Franklin’s arrest.
