Actress Rose McGowan was arrested on a charge of possession of a controlled substance after police said she left behind some luggage on a flight at Washington Dulles International Airport that tested positive for narcotics.

Rose McGowan was released from custody Tuesday after turning herself in for a drug possession charge.

Police launched an investigation after they allegedly found traces of narcotics in personal belongings left behind on a United flight arriving at the Washington Dulles International Airport on January 20, the AP reported.

She tweeted: "Are they trying to silence me?"

According to The Blast, the 44-year-old turned herself in to the Loudoun County Sheriff's office where she was arrested, took a mugshot, and was then released on bond.

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

McGowan has been one of the leading voices against sexual harassment in Hollywood, and tweeted earlier in October that she was raped by a man with the initials "HW".

Information from the Associated Press used in this report. McGowan said that back in 1997 she reached a $100,000 settlement with the Hollywood executive for "an episode in a hotel room during the Sundance Film Festival". The arrest warrant was issued on February 1, 2017.

"What a load of HORSES-T".
