Rose McGowan is the subject of an arrest warrant related to a felony drug charge in Loudoun County, Virginia, the Associated Press is reporting.
Police issued the warrant on Feb. 1, following a Jan. 20 incident in which traces of narcotics were detected on items left on a United flight bound for Washington Dulles International Airport. Police say McGowan did not respond to attempts to contact her to appear in court, according to the AP.
The actress was blunt in her assessment of the charges, calling them “a load of HORSES–T” late Monday morning.
Are they trying to silence me? There is a warrant out for my arrest in Virginia. What a load of HORSESHIT.

McGowan became a prominent voice against sexual harassment after going public with her accusation that she was raped by Harvey Weinstein, and confirming in a New York Times report that she was one of the women with whom Weinstein settled sexual harassment lawsuits. She later said that just weeks before the New York Times report was published, Weinstein offered her $1 million to stay quiet about her accusations.
