Rose McGowan has been arrested

ACTRESS Rose McGowan has been arrested over alleged drug possession after handing herself in to police.

According to Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Police, they obtained the warrant for McGowan on February 1 after an investigation of personal belongings left behind on a United flight arriving at Dulles International Airport on January 20 tested positive for narcotics.

Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority spokesman Andrew Trull says in an email Tuesday night that McGowan has surrendered to Airports Authority Police.

After cops snapped her mug shot, Rose was released on a $5,000 bond.

Last month, she claimed the arrest warrant obtained by Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Police Department had been part of an attempt to silence her.

"He's served about 60 percent, roughly, 65 percent of this contract", Jones said on 105.3 The Fan, per Todd Archer of ESPN . Meanwhile, Falcons owner Arthur Blank, the compensation committee's chairman, doesn't appear to be taking Jones' advice.

McGowan has been in the spotlight as of late for coming forward to accuse Harvey Weinstein of raping her in 1997.

McGowan had not released a statement about the warrant as of Monday night.

In recent weeks, McGowan was named in a The New York Times exposé that detailed decades of sexual harassment and assult allegations against Weinstein. The charge against her, he told Deadline, is a felony.

Rose, 44, is thought to have been paid £75,000 by the producer over an incident in the 1990s, and she recently tweeted: "Ladies of Hollywood your silence is deafening".

A warrant was issued for the actress' arrest for felony possession of a controlled substance. She added in her tweet about Affleck: "You lie".
