JoJo, Fifth Harmony Fans Plead #FreeLauren After Lauren Jauregui Busted With Pot
In the event Lauren Jauregui finds herself on the wrong end of the law in the future, we know about a kajillion Fifth Harmony fans who will eagerly swoop in to bail her out — just look to Twitter and #FreeLauren for evidence.
Earlier today (December 14), TMZ reported that Jauregui was arrested for possession of marijuana at the Dulles airport. The site noted that she was stopped by a TSA agent, forced to undergo an additional search and, when her stash was discovered in her carry-on luggage, police intervened.
Later, though, 5H lawyer Dina Lapolt clarified to E News! that Jauregui “was not arrested and detained as reported, but simply given a citation for possession of marijuana and released on her own recognizance…This will not interfere with any future scheduled performances or activities.”
Either way, 5H fans couldn’t help but plead #FreeLauren on Twitter (JoJo stood proudly among them). Whether Harmonizers tried to bring levity to the situation with some weed-related jokes or sincerely called for Jauregui’s exoneration, they responded en masse and gave authorities something to consider — even if Lauren isn’t, you know, actually in jail.

Also weed isn't a big deal. There's way worst drugs she could be using. And she probs uses it for medical reasons #FreeLauren

She got away with hiding lipsticks in a purse at the Disney store but couldn't hide weed in her bag #FreeLauren
