MYRTLE BEACH, SC (AP) -- A former member of the R&B group Destiny's Child has been arrested near Myrtle Beach.

Online records show 33-year-old Farrah Franklin was booked into the Horry County jail just before 5 a.m. Sunday on a charge of disorderly conduct.

Franklin was released several hours later after posting $280 bond. Court records listed no attorney for her, and no details of her arrest were immediately available.

Police say Franklin had been drinking with two former Clemson football players, who called authorities after she refused to calm down.

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 served to launch the solo careers of Williams, Kelly Rowland and Beyoncé.
