LAX Shooting

Rose McGowan turned herself in to Virginian authorities on Tuesday for a warrant issued for alleged felony possession of a controlled substance, The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Police Department confirmed to Highlight Hollywood.53rd New York Film Festival - NYFF Live

The Class 5 felony charge stems from a police investigation of the actress’ personal belongings left behind on a United flight arriving at Washington Dulles International Airport on Jan. 20.

Police say the items allegedly tested positive for narcotics. It is unclear which substance.


The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Police Department obtained the warrant on Feb. 1. Police say they had attempted to contact McGowan so she can appear in a Loudoun County, Virginia, court.

McGowan has been one of the leading voices against sexual harassment in Hollywood, and tweeted last month that she was raped by a man with the initials “HW.”

McGowan seemingly tweeted about the warrant last month, writing, “Are they trying to silence me? There is a warrant out for my arrest in Virginia. What a load of HORSESHIT.”

She was released on a $5,000 unsecured bond.
