Harvey Weinstein accuser Rose McGowan faces drugs charge

Harvey Weinstein accuser Rose McGowan faces drugs charge

"The police officers and magistrate were very polite and kind", she told me.

A warrant for her arrest was obtained after belongings left behind on a flight arriving at nearby Washington Dulles International Airport tested positive for illegal drugs, according to police.

What she didn't know at the time, she said, was that an airport employee reportedly recovered the wallet with two small bags of cocaine inside while cleaning the plane.

McGowan filed a lost luggage report and then went on her way, but on the morning of January 21, she reportedly received a phone call from a police detective who said he had her wallet and she should come pick it up.

McGowan has become one of the leading voices against sexual assault and harassment in Hollywood in recent months.

"There is a warrant out for my arrest in Virginia", she tweeted at the time. She has said publicly that Weinstein raped her.

McGowan was booked on a felony possession of a controlled substance charge in Loudoun County Tuesday. I have been maligned, and you know what?

She said she hired a private investigator to investigate whether the warrant was real. A reporter from the Post, who declined to comment and asked not to be named in this story, followed up with McGowan shortly thereafter to inquire about the warrant. "I beat him to it", she said.

"Depending on when and where the wallet was lost, individuals other than Ms McGowan had access to the wallet for somewhere between approximately five hours 40 minutes and more than 11 hours", he wrote to the Loudoun County prosecutor Jim Plowman. During the flight, she did not take her wallet out of her bag, she told me. Though she signed a court settlement at the time, she said she was unaware until 2017 that she was not subject to a non-disclosure agreement. She didn't noticed it was missing until she landed and was trying to get a Lyft ride.

Her attorney, James W. Hudley, filed a motion on her behalf waiving her appearance, saying she has no prior criminal record and has never failed to appear for a hearing.

McGowan has alleged that the cocaine may have been planted in an attempt to discredit her.

'I own stock in a marijuana company, so that's my jam.

The actress told Farrow on Sunday that she was afraid when an airport police detective called her to retrieve her wallet, as she was unsure if he was actually a detective.

'Imagining I'm going into sisterly solidarity, I can think of nothing more opposed to that, energetically, that I would want in my body at that moment, ' she said. McGowan vowed to continue her advocacy for victims of sexual assault.

She turned herself in on Tuesday at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center, according to Kraig Troxell, a spokesman for the county sheriff's office, and was released on a $US5000 unsecured bond. She said she will plead not guilty.
