Rose McGowan Faces Arrest for Alleged Drug Possession
The Associated Press reports that Rose McGowan was issued an arrest warrant for a felony drug possession charge. The warrant was issued February 1st, after a police investigation at Washington Dulles Airport of McGowan’s personal belongings. According to Virginia police, the Charmed actress allegedly left her belonging on a United flight, and they tested positive for narcotics.
Police tried contacting McGowan so she could appear in court in Loudoun County, Va., but were unsuccessful. The warrant was then submitted to national law enforcement database.
So what does McGowan think of her trouble with the law? She took to Twitter and called the warrant “horsesh-t.”
“Are they trying to silence me?” she wrote, “There is a warrant out for my arrest in Virginia. What a load of horsesh-t.”
McGowan has claimed someone’s tried to silence her before. She was mentioned in the now-famous expose in The New York Times about Harvey Weinstein’s sexual harassment allegations. The article cited a $100,000 settlement she received from the Hollywood producer in 1977 for “an episode in a hotel room during the Sundance Film Festival.”
The actress claims that “someone close” to Weinstein offered her $1 million to sign a nondisclosure agreement and not say anything about the alleged sexual harassment.
She later wrote on Twitter that Weinstein raped her. Weinstein’s reps didn’t respond to the tweet, but his attorney did speak out about The New York Times article, saying it was, “saturated with false and defamatory statements.”
Weinstein’s spokesperson, Sallie Hofmeiser added that “any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein.
