Rose McGowan to plead not guilty

Rose Mc Gowan

After the warrant has been issued for her arrest, McGowan turned herself to authorities on Tuesday and was booked for possessing a controlled substance; however the actress was later released on a $5,000 bond, reports The Mirror.

The warrant, obtained by the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Police Department, was issued on February 1, according to the Associated Press.

The actress, who's been vocal in her rape allegations against Harvey Weinstein, says two small bags of cocaine found in a wallet she left on a late January 20 LAX-to-Dulles flight were planted.

"It's unclear why it took almost nine months for the warrant to come to light, but it did so just after McGowan took a central role as an outspoken accuser of fallen movie mogul Harvey Weinstein", USA Today said.

Rose McGowan has vowed to plead not guilty following her arrest as part of an ongoing drugs investigation.

She's facing a felony drug possession charge.




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

The New Yorker alleges that Weinstein hired private agents to figure out a way to have McGowan arrested. Within hours, McGowan's Twitter account had been frozen. During this supposed business meeting, the actress says Weinstein grabbed her waist with one hand and masturbated with the other.

She said that a detective later contacted her and told her to come get her wallet. On Tuesday, she seemingly posted again about the charges, writing, "Well today was fun".

Ms McGowan reportedly reached a settlement with Weinstein after a hotel room encounter during the Sundance Film Festival.

"Imagining I'm going into sisterly solidarity, I can think of nothing more opposed to that, energetically, that I would want in my body at that moment", she said referring to the cocaine. Through a spokesperson, Weinstein has consistently denied any allegations of non-consensual sex. She said she tweeted United Airlines to help her find the wallet. In October, the actress alleged that Weinstein raped her. She was later released on a $5,000 (£3,800) bond.
