McGowan turned herself in Tuesday in Loudoun County, officials say. According to the spokesperson, the warrant existed for possession of cocaine.

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

The warrant was obtained on February 1, 2017, after a police investigation of McGowan's personal belongings "tested positive for narcotics and were left behind on a flight arriving at Washington Dulles International Airport" on January 20, the Airports Authority Police Department told us. A felony warrant was issued last month for her arrest, and the actress surrendered Tuesday to the Sheriff's Department in Loudoun County, Virginia.

McGowan has been a leading voice among the sexual harassment accusations against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein.

Previously, McGowan commented on the arrest warrant on Twitter, calling the warrent "horsesh*t".

She tweeted: "Are they trying to silence me?" There is a warrant out for my arrest in Virginia.

He faces police investigations in Los Angeles, New York and London and has been sacked from The Weinstein Company, the studio he co-founded with his brother. McGowan said that back in 1997 she reached a $100,000 settlement with the Hollywood executive for "an episode in a hotel room during the Sundance Film Festival".

No court date information has been made public yet.
