Rose McGowan turned herself in to police following felony drug charges - which she plans to fight
- Rose McGowan turned herself in on a felony drug charge, and was released on a $5,000 bond.
- McGowan and her lawyer believe the drugs found may have been planted.
She was released on a $5,000 bond after being arrested and booked on a charge of possession of a controlled substance.
Police started the investigation after they found traces of narcotics in McGowan's personal belongings she left behind on a January 20 United flight arriving at Washington Dulles International Airport. McGowan is set to be arraigned on Thursday morning.
McGowan, who has become one of the leading voices in speaking out about sexual harassment and assault in Hollywood after accusing Harvey Weinstein of rape, tweeted this on Tuesday:
Following her release, McGowan told the New Yorker's Ronan Farrow that the drugs found in her belongings may have been planted.
"Depending on when and where the wallet was lost, individuals other than Ms. McGowan had access to the wallet for somewhere between approximately 5 hours 40 minutes and more than 11 hours," McGowan's lawyer Jim Hundley wrote to the Loudoun County Commonwealth's Attorney, also asking that the charges be dismissed.
After the warrant was issued in October, McGowan tweeted this:
"I will clearly plead not guilty," she told the New Yorker.
