LOUDOUN COUNTY, VA. - An arrest warrant for actress Rose McGowan on charges of felony drug possession was issued nearly nine months after she flew through Dulles International Airport, but is just now being made public. The 44-year-old, who has been at the forefront of the national discussion on sexual misconduct after accusing Hollywood movie mogul Harvey Weinstein of rape, addressed the warrant Monday on Twitter. She wrote, "Are they trying to silence me? There is a warrant out for my arrest in Virginia. What a load of HORSES**T."

The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority said in a statement the warrant stems from McGowan allegedly leaving personal belongings that tested positive for narcotics on a United flight last Jan. 20 at Dulles International Airport. "Since obtaining the warrant...Airports Authority police have attempted to contact Ms. McGowan so she can appear in a Loudoun County, Virginia, court to respond to the charge. The (warrant) was also entered into a national law enforcement database."
