Fifth Harmony member Lauren Jauregui was arrested for marijuana possession in Dulles, Virginia.

According to TMZ, Jauregui, 20, was stopped at a TSA checkpoint while trying to get on a plane at Dulles Airport.

During a second search, an employee allegedly found marijuana in her carry-on bag. She was arrested.

The Dulles Airport PIO told Us Weekly that Jauregui was later released on a summons to appear in court.

Jauregui was reportedly planning to fly to São Paulo to perform with the girl group.

It is unclear whether Jauregui was with her bandmates — Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei, Dinah Jane and Camila Cabello — at the time.

Update from TMZ: Lauren's attorney says the singer was not arrested or detained, but was "simply given a citation for possession of marijuana and released on her own recognizance." She adds, "This will not interfere with any future scheduled performances or activities."
