Rose McGowan turns herself in on felony drug-possession warrant

The actress and activist Rose McGowan turned herself in to a magistrate's office in Loudoun County, Virginia, on Tuesday, responding to a felony warrant on charges of drug possession.

A felony warrant was issued for McGowan's arrest on February 1 by the Magistrate's Office in Loudoun County, and McGowan handed herself in yesterday to be formally arrested on felony suspicion of a controlled substance.

The actress told Farrow on Sunday that she was afraid when an airport police detective called her to retrieve her wallet, as she was unsure if he was actually a detective.

McGowan is among several actresses who have said movie mogul Harvey Weinstein sexually assaulted them.

Ms McGowan reportedly reached a settlement with Weinstein after a hotel room encounter during the Sundance Film Festival. "What a load of HORSES**T", she tweeted.

Rose McGowan, the Harvey Weinstein accuser who is facing a drugs charge, could have had cocaine planted in her luggage, her lawyer has suggested. Through a spokesperson, Weinstein has consistently denied any allegations of non-consensual sex. On Tuesday, she seemingly posted again about the charges, writing, "Well today was fun".

She was released on a $5,000 unsecured bond, authorities told THR.

"I was going to ASAP but then things started to get really weird", she said, People reported, citing the New Yorker. I knew I was being followed and that I wasn't safe. An arrest warrant had been released in late October after a small amount of cocaine was found in her wallet, which she had left onboard a flight to Virginia.

Apparently, the warrant was from Loudoun County, Virginia, officials.

She alleged she had been raped by Weinstein after The New York Times published its bombshell investigation detailing claims of sexual harassment and abuse. She says she met with Weinstein in 2015 to discuss a potential job opportunity on the show Marco Polo.
