Farrah Franklin, a former member of the R&B group Destiny's Child, was arrested on a charge of disorderly conduct early Sunday in Myrtle Beach, S.C., after an altercation with NFL players Da'Quan Bowers and Ricky Sapp.

Police reports show that Franklin went out drinking with Bowers and Sapp before going back to Sapp's home, where Franklin was "yelling, slamming doors and refused to stop when asked," according to the Associated Press

Sapp and Bowers called the police, who found Franklin lying in a neighbor's yard. She reportedly told officers that she "did not have anywhere else to go and was planning on sleeping in the woods."​

Franklin, who was also arrested for disorderly conduct in April 2011, was removed from Destiny's Child after five months in 2000.

Bowers and Sapp were teammates at Clemson from 2008-09.
