Original Story: Fifth Harmony member Lauren Jauregui was arrested for marijuana possession on Tuesday night, TMZ reports. At Washington Dulles International Airport, the site writes, "Lauren was stopped at a TSA checkpoint and forced to submit to a secondary search, when a TSA staffer found what appeared to be a bag of marijuana in her carry-on luggage."

Fifth Harmony have a concert tonight in Brazil.
