Rose McGowan Speaks Out About Her Arrest on Drug Charges

McGowan, 44, was booked at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center on a charge of possession of a controlled substance sought by the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Police.

She immediately took to Instagram to denounce the freeze: "TWITTER HAS SUSPENDED ME".

As Farrow revealed in The New Yorker, Weinstein in fact was working to discredit McGowan, who had tweeted months before the warrant was issued that she had been raped by an unnamed studio head.

Weinstein is alleged to have hired a team of private investigators to smear victims and try to keep a lid on allegations in the run-up to a wave of revelations being made public. Her attorney now suggests the drugs may have been planted.

Weinstein's representatives have rebuked claims, saying that "any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein".

McGowan has now told The New Yorker she felt she was being followed around the time her purse went missing.

Addressing The New Yorker after her capture, McGowan stated, "I will unmistakably argue not blameworthy".

Here's the backstory: An airport official at Washington Dulles International apparently discovered a wallet allegedly belonging to the actress that contained two bags of white power.

She spoke publicly about the incident at the Women's Convention in Detroit in October and addressed the culture of sexual abuse.

She stated, "I knew I was being followed and that I wasn't safe". And on February 1, a felony arrest warrant was issued.

And now, the former "Charmed" star - who was later released on $5,000 bail - insists that despite handing herself in, she intends to prove she is innocent when the case goes to court.

She says that cocaine was the last thing on her mind at the time as she was on her way to attend the Women's March. "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".
