Former Destiny Child’s Member Arrested Outside Tucker Gym


TUCKER, Ga. — A former member of Destiny’s Child was arrested after an alleged drunken incident outside of Tucker, Ga. gym early Thursday.

According to the incident report, Farrah Franklin got into an argument with a male friend outside of a Planet Fitness on Chamblee-Tucker Road just before 3 a.m. Franklin told the responding officer that she wasn’t ready to go home, and “these [expletive] won’t leave me alone.”

The responding officer reported that Franklin smelled of alcohol, her eyes were bloodshot and her speech was slurred.

When asked how much alcohol she’d had to drink, Franklin reportedly responded, “not enough.”

Franklin was taken into custody on public intoxication charges. The officer said he discovered a “leafy green substance” thought to be marijuana in Franklin’s purse during a search. She was taken to DeKalb County Jail.

According to an article, Franklin was a member of Destiny’s Child along with Beyonce Knowles, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams back in 2000. She exited the group after less than six months.

Before she left, she appeared in music videos for the songs “Say My Name” and “Jumpin’, Jumpin’” according to IMDB.

The police incident report lists her address in Torrance, Calif. According to her Twitter account, Franklin is a “singer/actor/host/producer” and apparently just released an EP on iTunes.
