NFL players Da’Quan Bowers and Ricky Sapp were involved in an altercation with Farrah Franklin, formerly a member of the R&B group Destiny’s Child, which resulted in Franklin being arrested for disorderly conduct.

The Associated Press reports that Bowers told police that he had flown Franklin in from her home in California to visit him in Myrtle Beach, and that he, Franklin and Sapp got together for a night of drinking on Saturday night.

When the three of them went to Sapp’s home, however, Franklin was “yelling, slamming doors and refused to stop when asked,” according to the police report. That led Bowers and Sapp to call the police. When police arrived, they found Franklin in Sapp’s neighbor’s yard, and according to the report she told police she “did not have anywhere else to go and was planning on sleeping in the woods.”

Franklin was a member of Destiny’s Child for five months in 2000, but she was removed from the group because, according to Beyonce Knowles, she did not show up for three major promotional events. This is not Franklin’s first disorderly conduct arrest.

Bowers is heading into his fourth season with the Buccaneers. Sapp has bounced around the league with the Eagles and Jets and was picked up by the Texans in November.

    I lived there for 2 years…sounds just like a typical night in Myrtle Beach, SC.

    Now you see why I left there so soon.

    The next time she asks to come hang out, Bowers should sing to her “Get on the Bus”.

    Should read former Buccaneer Bowers since he shouldn’t make the team this season. this the biggest thing he’s done since being drafted

    Kaepernick, Bowers, and Sapp need to stop renting/hiring dates/entertainment.

    I guess she wanted him to “say my name, say my name”

    She’s lucky Ray Rice wasn’t around.

    I immediately lost interest after I saw that it wasn’t Beyonce or Kelly Rowland.

    Sounds like a cool chick that’s totally worth the airfare for a visit.

    Haha for those of you that don’t know about myrtle beach, trust me when I say this story is nothing, I’m lucky to be alive after what I have done there

    Bowers is a complete and total bust.

    Cut him already and move on.

    Bowers’ career is perfectly described as being worthy of the crazy, forgotten member of Destiny’s Child. Lots of hype, fading to irrelevance.

    Who cares this about sports

  17. thevelvetglove says: Jul 21, 2014 1:32 PM

    Bowers has had more off-field transgressions than sacks.

    Ouch, that’s gonna leave a mark…..

    Isn’t she the one that dated Andre Rison?…

    Destiny’s Child..Puleeze!

    Kinda surprised this went that direction, rather than some sort of trumped up sexual misconduct allegations. Maybe they told her she had to pay for staying in the house and she didn’t want to.
