Words by Megan Ambers
Rose McGowan is in love with the coco (allegedly!) The actress turned herself in on Tuesday, over an outstanding warrant for possession of cocaine.
In January, The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Police was said to have found several small bags of what they believed was cocaine in a wallet McGowan left behind in the airport. A warrant for McGowan was obtained on Feb. 1, more than a week after the items tested positive for narcotics. Last month a felony warrant was issued for her arrest, in which McGowan surrendered in Loudoun County, Virginia. Rose was released on a $5,000 bond.
It is not clear to why it took nine months for the warrant to be put in order, but it comes just weeks after McGowan spoke out about her sexual assault. Last month, McGowan alleged Movie mogul Harvey Weinstein raped her during the 1997 Sundance Film Festival. After the warrant was made public, McGowan claimed that it was a conspiracy due to the allegations that she had made.
