Rose McGowan turned herself in to Virginian authorities on Tuesday for a warrant issued for alleged felony possession of a controlled substance, The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Police Department confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter.

The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority said McGowan left personal belongings on United flight 653 after arriving at Dulles on January 20.

The Planet Terror and Scream star previously suggested the warrant was an attempt to "silence" her after she became one of dozens of women to publicly accuse Weinstein of sexual harassment or assault.

She was released on a $5,000 unsecured bond, authorities told THR.

The Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority also told ET in a statement that the felony charge against McGowan stems from the actress allegedly leaving personal belongings behind on a flight, which allegedly tested positive for narcotics.

Last month, McGowan tweeted: "Are they trying to silence me? What a load of HORSESHIT".

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 former "Charmed" actress says that the producer raped her and then gave her a $100,000 settlement in 1997.
