McGowan, who has starred in Charmed and Scream, turned herself in to a magistrate's office in Loudoun County, Virginia yesterday (November 14) in response to an outstanding felony warrant on charges of drug possession.

Officers have said that evidence of cocaine was found, and that police had tried to contact McGowan in order for the actress to appear at a court in Virginia. During the flight, she did not take her wallet out of her bag, she told me.

The felony charge stems from what prosecutors say was cocaine found among McGowan's personal belongings left behind on a January 20 flight to Washington Dulles International Airport in Virginia.

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.

The newspaper reported that Weinstein paid her a 100,000 dollar (£76,000) settlement in 1997 to "avoid litigation and buy peace" over an incident in a hotel room during the Sundance Film Festival. "What a load of HORSES-", she wrote.

McGowan then realized her wallet was missing when she arrived at baggage claim.

Egyptair to buy 12 Bombardier aircraft
The CS300 carries a list price of $89.5 million, although discounts of 50 percent or more are common in the industry. Bombardier hasn't sealed a major purchase since Delta Air Lines ordered 75 aircraft in April 2016.

In the wake of handing herself over to confront a lawful offense sedate charge, Rose McGowan has asserted that she is a casualty of a set-up and will argue not blameworthy.

Weinstein's representatives have rebuked claims, saying that "any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein". A warrant was issued for her arrest.

McGowan has not commented on today's arrest, but just posted a photo on Twitter of her standing strong with the #RoseArmy logo. She decided not to go to the airport to meet the detective and to leave the city on a bus with other marchers.

She stated, "I knew I was being followed and that I wasn't safe".

Rose McGowan says she will plead not guilty when she's arraigned Thursday on a drug charge outside Washington, D.C. And on February 1, a felony arrest warrant was issued.
