Ex-Destiny’s Child Member, Farrah Franklin Arrested on Public Intoxication, Marijuana Possession Charges

A former member of Destiny’s Child, the girl group that catapulted Beyonce to stardom, was arrested Thursday in DeKalb County.

About 2:54 a.m., an officer went to the 3500 block of Chamblee Tucker Road in reference to a drunk call, according to a police report obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The officer said Farrah Franklin was outside Planet Fitness arguing with a man.

She had bloodshot eyes. Her speech was slurred. And her breath reeked of alcohol, according to the report.

“I asked Ms. Franklin how much alcohol she had consumed,” the officer said in the report. “Ms. Franklin said, ‘Not enough.’”

Franklin, 35, of Torrance, Calif., was taken to the DeKalb jail on public intoxication and marijuana possession charges. The officer said he noticed a green, leafy substance in Franklin’s purse during an inventory search.

She and Michelle Williams replaced original members LeToya Luckett and LaTavia Roberson in 1999.

After Franklin’s departure months later, Destiny’s Child became a trio.
