Last month, The Goldwater reported on a felony warrant issued for actress and activist Rose McGowan after failing to appear for a court date stemming from drug charges.
The 44-year-old actress turned herself into Loudoun County authorities in Washington, Virginia Tuesday and has been released on bond. The charge stems from an investigation by the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Police who say she left belongings behind on a United Airlines flight in January that tested positive for narcotics.
McGowan arrived at the Washington Dulles International Airport one day before participating in the Women's March in D.C earlier this year. The Loudoun County police say they tried to contact McGowan so she can appear in court but when they were unable to reach her a warrant was entered into the national law enforcement database.
McGowan suggested the sudden warrant was the result of her speaking out about sexual abuse in Hollywood and believes the timing is no coincidence.
