Yes - Singer Farrah Franklin Plans Lawsuit Against Cops
R&B singer Farrah Franklin is planning to take legal action against California police amid allegations of "manhandling" during her arrest in the early hours of Saturday (23Apr11).
The former Destiny's Child star was taken into custody in Culver City on suspicion of disorderly conduct after cops received a disturbing the peace complaint about Franklin.
The 29-year-old African-American, who was released on $100 (£63) bail, insists she is innocent and has sensationally accused officers of targeting her for her race and mistreating her during her detainment.
She told Tmz.com, "I was manhandled by the arresting officers... There were no female officers on duty and I was required to take off my top and treated unfairly."
And Franklin has now vowed to take her case to court.
In a post on Twitter.com on Monday (25Apr11), she writes, "Yes, I'm okay & Yes there Will be a lawsuit ! F**K da (sic) Culver City Police !!!! You cant keep a good girl down."
