Farrah Franklin, actress and former member of Destiny's Child, has been arrested, TMZ is reporting today. Authorities in South Carolina say that Farrah Franklin was placed under arrest for disorderly conduct on Saturday, July 19, 2014. Details are still sketchy but the arrest for disorderly conduct was directly related to alcohol. Franklin is now in custody in the Horry County Detention Center.
Just hours before Farrah Franklin's arrest, she posted a photo of herself enjoying some time on the beach. She was transported to the Horry County Detention Center around 5:00 a.m., officials say.
In 2011 actress and singer Farrah Franklin was arrested for disorderly conduct, and that charge was also related to her being under the influence of alcohol. Farrah stated that she was a victim of racial profiling in that case. She was arrested after someone called the authorities to complain that she was disturbing the peace.
Farrah Franklin joined Destiny's Child in 1999. She replaced former group members LaTavia Roberson and LeToya Luckett. She was not apart of the group for very long before she was fired for not showing up for a promotional tour. Beyone's father Matthew Knowles stated: “The bottom line is that Farrah didn’t show up for work. I don’t care where you work, whether it’s a production line or whatever, if you don’t show up, you’re going to get fired," according to MTV News.
Life has been up and down for the singer since that time." Farrah has had several roles in movies, such as the 2009 movie "Single Black Female" and the 2011 movie "The Preacher's Family."
The ex Destiny's Child singer was released from jail on Sunday, July 20, 2014. Singer Omarion was also arrested this weekend for not showing up to traffic court. Earlier this month, former member of the 1990's group Hi-Five Russell Neal was arrested and charged with the murder of his wife.
