The actress and activist Rose McGowan turned herself in to a magistrate's office in Loudoun County, Virginia, on Tuesday, responding to a felony warrant on charges of drug possession.

The Class 5 felony charge stems from a police investigation of the actress' personal belongings left behind on a United flight arriving at Washington Dulles International Airport on January 20.

Rose McGowan, the Hollywood actress who kind of got the whole sexual harassment ball rolling - when she outed Tinsel Town's bigwig, Harvey Weinstein, for inappropriate behaviors with women - is now facing felony cocaine charges.

Meanwhile, TMZ reports that an anonymous actress has sued Harvey Weinstein over allegations that he masturbated in front of her at a Beverly Hills hotel, and, in a later incident, raped her. She filed a lost-luggage claim and tweeted at United Airlines, asking for help recovering the wallet. Furthermore, McGowan and her lawyer, Jim Hundley, say it's a possibility that Weinstein's private agents planted drugs on her.

Weinstein's representatives have rebuked claims, saying that "any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein".

She said: "I had it in the side pocket of my backpack, and I left it on my seat as I went to the bathroom".

She tweeted last month that the arrest warrant was an attempt to silence her. "I will clearly plead not guilty", she said.

McGowan claimed that the warrant for her arrest was part of a conspiracy to silence her, in a tweet from October 30.

A source who worked at the Weinstein Company told Farrow that Weinstein in September enlisted the help of private investigators to get McGowan arrested before the existence of the warrant was made public. She was charged with possession of a controlled substance. She joined the chorus of voices that followed an NYT investigation that included stories about Weinstein from Ashley Judd and other women. I've been maligned. And you know what?
