Former Destiny Child's member arrested for public intoxication and marijuana possession


A former member of the R&B group Destiny's Child has been arrested after being accused of drunkenly arguing with a man outside an Atlanta-area gym.

Citing a police report, news outlets say 35-year-old Farrah Franklin was arrested early on Thursday in DeKalb County on public intoxication charges and marijuana possession charges.

Police say Farrah smelled of alcohol, had bloodshot eyes and slurred speech. Authorities say they discovered a green, leafy substance in her purse they believe to be marijuana.

It is unclear whether Farrah has an attorney to comment on the charges.

Farrah and Michelle Williams joined Destiny's Child to replace two original members in 2000.

She left the group months later and the remaining trio helped launch the solo careers of Williams, Kelly Rowland and Beyonce.
