Are they trying to silence me? the Scream actress tweeted Monday afternoon.
McGowan, however, implied that the timing is suspicious.
Authorities reportedly obtained the arrest warrant in February, though it's unclear when McGowan first learned of it. The warrant has been entered into a national law enforcement database.
It is not clear when the actress became aware of the warrant. "There is a warrant out for my arrest in Virginia", McGowan tweeted Monday afternoon.
Rose McGowan was immediately flooded with messages of support from her followers, with one writing, "Rose, you've got an army of angry women behind you".
Rose McGowan is the subject of an arrest warrant related to a felony drug charge in Loudoun County, Virginia, the Associated Press is reporting.
McGowan was one of the main subjects of the original New York Times expose detailing years of alleged sexual abuse from Weinstein.
She says she only realized that settlement did not include a nondisclosure component this summer, and this month accused the producer of the sexual assault on Twitter. I've been maligned. And you know what?
A representative for the motion picture big shot beforehand told PEOPLE, "Any charges of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein".
