Farrah Franklin was arrested in South Carolina on Sunday morning for disorderly conduct.
According to reports, the singer was found drunk and asleep in a stranger’s garden. She told police, she planned on “sleeping in the woods… because she had nowhere else to go.”
Farrah had been partying and drinking with football players Ricky Sapp and Da’Quan Bowers after which she was found in a random person’s yard. Here’s more from TMZ:
According to the police NFL player Da’Quan Bowers flew Franklin to Myrtle Beach. The two of them, along with NFL player Ricky Sapp went out on the town Saturday day and night … and the alcohol was flowing. They all went back to Sapp’s place and it became apparent to everyone Franklin was wasted.
Sapp and Bowers both told police they thought Franklin had been doing drugs. Bowers told police he was suspicious of Franklin because she would go to the bathroom for extended periods of time.
Bowers and Sapp say they called cops after Franklin went nuts, screaming and slamming doors. They told police Franklin fled. Cops combed the neighborhood and eventually found Franklin laying down in a neighbor’s lawn.
Police described Franklin as “highly intoxicated” and “unsteady on her feet,” but she denied using drugs. She told police she had nowhere to go and planned on sleeping in the woods. [via TMZ]
She was booked into the Horry County Detention Center in Conway around 5 a.m. June 20.
The 33-year-old was subsequently released, after posting $280 bond.
According to InTouch, Farrah was also arrested in 2011 in Los Angeles for disorderly conduct.
Fans of Destiny’s Child may remember that Farrah was a member of the band for five-months between 1999-2000, most notably appearing in the Say My Name music video.
She and Michelle Williams (still technically a member to this day) were introduced at the same time replacing two of the founding members. Rather quickly, however, Farrah was fired for missing too many shows.
