A former member of Destiny's Child was arrested in South Carolina over the weekend for disorderly conduct.

Farrah Franklin, who was a part of the R&B group for five months before her exit in 2000, was arrested for disorderly conduct after a night out in Myrtle Beach on Sunday, July 20, the Associated Press reports.

Franklin had been out drinking with NFL players Daquan Bowers and Ricky Sapp when the three returned to Sapp's house early Sunday. The two men told police the 33-year-old was "yelling, slamming doors and refused to stop when asked," so they called the police. When law enforcement arrived, they found Franklin lying in a neighbor's yard. She told them she "did not have anywhere else to go and was planning on sleeping in the woods."

She was booked into the J. Reuben Long Detention Center at 4:55 a.m. on Sunday, according to the Horry County Sheriff's Office. She was released on $280 bond.

After the incident, Franklin posted a motivational quote to Instagram, and wrote: "That part! I'm good just hate the dumb media sometimes, but hey this is the job I signed up for. So I respect it #TurnDownForWhat #TeamFARRAH #GodsChild #Instagram."

TMZ reported this is not the first time Franklin has been arrested for disorderly conduct. She was arrested in Los Angeles in 2011 for the same offense. At the time, she allegedly claimed she was the victim of racial profiling.

Beyonce told MTV in 2000 that Franklin's exit was a group decision that came after she missed multiple promotional events.
