An arrest warrant for felony possession of a controlled substance has been issued for actress Rose McGowan, who is one of dozens of women who accused Harvey Weinstein of sexual misconduct.
The felony charge stems from a police investigation of personal belongings left behind on a United flight arriving at Washington Dulles International Airport on January 20.
Police say the items tested positive for narcotics, but they did not reveal what type of drugs they were. The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Police Department obtained the warrant on February 1 and attempted to contact McGowan so she can appear in a Loudoun County, Virginia, court. The warrant has been entered into a national law enforcement database.
McGowan had not released a statement regarding the warrant as of Monday night, but she simply tweeted ‘FACT’ early Tuesday morning in a retweet suggesting that if she had ‘taken the million dollars in hush money’ from Weinstein, the warrant would not have been issued and not been a news story.
McGowan retweeted Ashlee Marie Preston who wrote: ‘If @rosemcgowan would have taken that million dollars in hush money I’m quite sure this wouldn’t even be a headline…’
