Earlier this week, Rose McGowan surrendered to police for arrest on felony possession of cocaine after the substance was found in her wallet back in January. MSN target=new>MSN reports that the actress was arraigned yesterday on the charges. She previously told The New Yorker that she things the drugs were planted to silence her due to her outspoke nature against Harvey Weinstein. She accused the producer of rape and sexual abuse. She said she’s been so worried about him that she hired a private investigator to make sure the drug warrant was real.

Police found her wallet on January 20 at the Washington Dulles International Airport in Virginia after she departed a flight. She had arrived there for a Women’s March in Washington, DC. McGowan claims she reported the wallet as lost after landing. She thinks it was taken from her backpack, possibly after she left it in her seat to use the restroom. She was supposed to appear in the courtroom but a judge agreed to waive that appearance at her lawyer’s request. A preliminary hearing is set for January 23, but McGowan said she will “clearly plead not guilty.”
