Rose McGowan surrenders over drug charge warrant

Share

Actress Rose McGowan, one of the leading voices speaking out against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, has turned herself in after a warrant was issued for her arrest on a drug charge in Virginia. A warrant for her arrest was obtained after belongings left behind on a flight arriving at nearby Washington Dulles global airport tested positive for illegal drugs, police said.

The items allegedly contained traces of unspecified narcotics. A Post reporter called McGowan around the same time to ask her about it and she, after receiving the call, revealed details of the arrest warrant for the first time on Twitter. "I will clearly plead not guilty", she said.

Rose has now admitted that after the warrant was issued earlier this year, she had every intention of turning herself in as soon as possible, but her concerns led her to hire a private investigator.

In 1997, Ms. McGowan reached a $100,000 settlement with Mr. Weinstein, and she said through her lawyer in October that someone close to Mr. Weinstein had offered her $1 million to sign a nondisclosure agreement. Weinstein has denied all allegations of nonconsensual sex.

Following her release, McGowan told the New Yorker's Ronan Farrow that the drugs found in her belongings may have been planted.
