Rose McGowan Surrenders To Police On Drug Possession Charge

Actress Rose McGowan turned herself in Tuesday to face a felony drug possession charge — months after officials issued an arrest warrant.

Authorities confirmed to several media outlets McGowan surrendered to police in Virginia. She was arrested, booked and released on a $5,000 unsecured bond. 

The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Police Department got the arrest warrant in February. Authorities said personal belongings McGowan left behind on a United flight in late January tested positive for narcotics.

McGowan tweeted about the warrant in October, saying it was an attempt to silence her. 

McGowan spoke out about harassment in Hollywood long before the recent uproar. And she's been a vocal critic of Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein ever since multiple women came forward to accuse him of sexual harassment and assault. 

McGowan told The New Yorker she plans to plead not guilty. Her arraignment is scheduled for Thursday morning.
