    A former Destiny's Child band member was arrested on Thursday for public intoxication and possession of marijuana.

    Officials tell E! News Farrah Franklin — who was a member of the girl group for five months in 1999 — was taken into custody after getting into an argument with a male friend outside a gym in DeKalb County, Georgia, around 3 a.m.

    When officers arrived, they noticed an odor of alcohol, and determined Franklin was intoxicated due to her slurred speech and bloodshot eyes. After her arrest, police found marijuana and charged her with possession as well.

    She was released from custody Thursday after paying $630, according to jail records, which did not indicate if she had an attorney.

    Meanwhile, this is not the first time Franklin has been in trouble with the law. In 2014, she found herself behind bars for disorderly conduct in South Carolina after she was reportedly found sleeping in the yard of a local person's house.
