Actress Rose McGowan was arrested on a felony cocaine possession charge in Virginia on Tuesday, authorities said.

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.

McGowan turned herself in at the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office after a warrant was issued February 1 by the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Police Department, authorities confirmed. She was subsequently released on $5,000 unsecured bond, police officials said.

Rose responded to the arrest warrant on social media in October, claiming it was part of a conspiracy against her claims that Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein sexually assaulted her. She said it was an attempt to silence her and was a "load of horseshit". McGowan tweeted earlier today about the warrant for her arrest.

In recent weeks, McGowan was named in a The New York Times exposé that detailed decades of sexual harassment and assult allegations against Weinstein.

After apparently learning about the charge last month, McGowan, whose name has hit the headlines with the onslaught on Weinstein coverage, tweeted: "Are they trying to silence me?"

Airport police, he said, "have been issued a bench warrant and entered it into a national law enforcement database". She added in her tweet about Affleck: "You lie".
