Former Destiny's Child member Farrah Franklin was arrested for disorderly conduct in South Carolina this weekend.

Details about the incident leading to the arrest are unclear, other than "alcohol was definitely involved," reports TMZ. She was booked around 5 a.m. Sunday morning and released hours later after posting $280 bail. 

"Have a Blessed Sunday my Luvs," she wrote on Instagram later that day.

Franklin was brought in on disorderly conduct once before, in 2011. She claims she was a victim of racial profiling and was "manhandled" by police. "Unfortunately, I am the latest victim on what seems to be a growing list of those who are racially profiled and mistreated by Culver City Police," she told TMZ.com. "I was manhandled by the arresting officers."

Franklin also took to Twitter to vent her side of the story, "YES, I'm okay & YES there WILL be a lawsuit ! F--K da Culver City Police !!!! You cant keep a good girl down #RealTalk !"
