Lauren Jauregui of girl band Fifth Harmony was cited for possession of marijuana on Tuesday.

A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority told ET that the singer was given a citation at the Washington Dulles International Airport in Dulles, Virginia.

According to Dina LaPolt, attorney for the 20-year-old singer and Fifth Harmony, "Lauren Jauregui was not arrested and detained as reported, but simply given a citation for possession of marijuana and released on her own recognizance."

"She will address the matter appropriately through the legal system," LaPolt continued. "This will not interfere with any future scheduled performances or activities."

Fifth harmony fans took to Twitter after news of Jauregui's citation broke out, using the hashtag "#FreeLauren". Singer JoJo tweeted "#legalizeit".

Fifth Harmony is scheduled to headline Vevo Brasil's FunPopFun Festival by Fanta on Wednesday. That's likely where she was headed when she was cited.

The girl group -- which is also made up of Ally Brooke Hernandez, Normani Kordei, Dinah Jane and Camila Cabello -- is also scheduled to perform at Power 96.1's Jingle Ball in Atlanta, Georgia, on Friday.
