Former Destiny's Child singer Farrah Franklin claims she was "manhandled" and the victim of racial profiling when she was taken into custody last Saturday.
Franklin tells TMZ, "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. I was manhandled by the arresting officers."
But the Culver City PD begs to differ, telling TMZ, they were simply responding to a telephone complaint by a citizen who claimed Franklin was disturbing the peace.
Franklin says, “I am really upset about all that has taken place. I have never had a run in with the law before Saturday. On Saturday I was not arrested, I was detained."
