TUCKER, Ga. (AP) - A former member of the R&B; group Destiny’s Child has been arrested after being accused of drunkenly arguing with a man outside an Atlanta-area gym.

Citing a police report, news outlets say 35-year-old Farrah Franklin was arrested early Thursday in DeKalb County on public intoxication charges and marijuana possession charges.

Police say Franklin smelled of alcohol, had bloodshot eyes and slurred speech. Authorities say they discovered a green, leafy substance in Franklin’s purse they believe to be marijuana.

It is unclear whether Franklin has an attorney to comment on the charges.

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.
