Rose McGowan Seeks Dismissal of Her Drug Case, Cites Harvey Weinstein’s ‘Underhanded Tactics’

“There is simply no point in time at which the evidence places Ms. McGowan and the cocaine together in the same place,” court papers say

Rose McGowan is seeking the dismissal of a drug-possession case against her, citing the “underhanded tactics” of disgraced film mogul Harvey Weinstein, who she has accused of raping her, the Associated Press reports.

Court papers filed Tuesday reference “the underhanded targeting of Ms. McGowan” on Weinstein’s part, adding, “It is now public knowledge that Weinstein employed underhanded tactics to ‘silence’ his victims.”

McGowan turned herself in for arrest in November stemming from a felony drug charge in Loudoun County, Virginia. The charge followed a Jan. 20 incident in which traces of narcotics were allegedly detected on items left on a United flight bound for Washington Dulles International Airport.

McGowan was charged with possession of a controlled substance, a Class 5 felony, and released on $5,000 bond, according to a spokesman for the Loudoun County Sheriffs Office.

However, Tuesday’s filing asserts, five hours had elapsed between McGowan de-boarding her plane and a cleaning crew finding her wallet.

“There is simply no point in time at which the evidence places Ms. McGowan and the cocaine together in the same place,” the papers read.

McGowan accused Weinstein of raping her in October, tweeting that she told the head of Amazon Studios repeatedly and nothing had been done.

“@jeffbezos I told the head of your studio HW raped me. Over & over I said it,” the actress tweeted at Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos. “He said it hadn’t been proven. I said I was the proof.”

Weinstein has called McGowan’s accusations “a bold lie.”

TheWrap has reached out to a Weinstein spokesperson for comment on Tuesday’s filing.
