Former Destiny's Child member arrested in SC

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) - A former member of the R&B group Destiny's Child has been arrested in South Carolina near Myrtle Beach.

Online records show 33-year-old Farrah Franklin was booked into the Horry County jail just before 5 a.m. Sunday on a charge of disorderly conduct.

Franklin was released several hours later after posting $280 bond. Court records listed no attorney for her, and no details of her arrest were immediately available.

Franklin and Michelle Williams joined Destiny's Child to replace two original members in 2000. Franklin left the group months later, and the remaining trio helped launch the solo careers of Williams, Kelly Rowland and Beyonce.

I can't figure out why this is believed to be newsworthy. You can be arrested for disorderly conduct for something as simple as arguing with a meter maid over a parking ticket! LMAO

It seems in that culture if you are not being arrested for something you are not considered relevant. Besides the African-American population you have the Miley Cyruses, Justin Beibers and Lindsay Lohans to name a few.

so I guess we could just say that people of all colors and backgrounds get arrested and leave it at that, couldn't we, bigot?

She is so far removed from Destiny's Child that no one would remember if it were not for this picture.

This is news worthy because of the success of those other members of the group. She obviously is so much like so many of the rest of us, the one who was not able to fulfill her dream of stardom and that hurts.

Mytle Beach...ha...you can be arrested for anything, even many trumped up charges as I was as a teen. Disorderly and whatever is a common thing there, since that is Myrlte Beaches' MO. Crooked cops and laywers and judges, just to make a buck off of tourists and the like.
