Rose McGowan surrendered Tuesday to law enforcement in Virginia in response to a warrant for her arrest on a drug-possession charge stemming from a January incident at Dulles International Airport near Washington, D.C.

Although, a spokesperson for the Loudoun County Commonwealth's Attorney's office told ET at the time that McGowan's arrest warrant was actually issued on February 1, and had been outstanding since then. During this supposed business meeting, the actress says Weinstein grabbed her waist with one hand and masturbated with the other.

Rose McGowan, the Hollywood actress who kind of got the whole sexual harassment ball rolling - when she outed Tinsel Town's bigwig, Harvey Weinstein, for inappropriate behaviors with women - is now facing felony cocaine charges. What a load of HORSE--.”.

Through his rep, Weinstein has "unequivocally denied" any "claims of nonconsensual sex".

It is not clear to why it took nine months for the warrant to be put in order, but it comes just weeks after McGowan spoke out about her sexual assault.

Lebanon's president: Saudi Arabia is detaining PM
Hezbollah has said Saudi Arabia forced Hariri to resign in order to bring down his coalition government, which includes the group. Bahaa Hariri's name has been mentioned in Lebanese media reports as a possible Saudi-backed candidate to replace his brother.

"Goddamnit! I told him to stop doing that", McGowan claimed Affleck said to her after it emerged she'd been a victim of Weinstein back in 1997. After a report from the Washington Post came out about her subsequent arrest warrant, McGowan went straight to the police.

Nervous that she was being followed by private investigators hired by Weinstein and uncertain whether she was talking to a real detective, she didn't go to the airport, choosing instead to board a bus for the march, she told the New Yorker.

She stated, "I knew I was being followed and that I wasn't safe". There is a warrant out for my arrest in Virginia.

Then, in 2016, the actress says she encountered Weinstein at the same hotel, this time to "celebrate her upcoming role in Marco Polo" (she did not end up getting the job). "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", McGowan told Farrow.
