WASHINGTON—Actress Rose McGowan, a leading voice against sexual harassment in Hollywood, has accepted an arrest warrant on a drug charge in a Washington suburb.

Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority spokesman Andrew Trull said in an email on Tuesday night that McGowan has surrendered to Airports Authority Police. She is charged with possession of a controlled substance.


The felony charge stems from a police investigation of personal belongings left behind on a January 20 flight that arrived at Washington Dulles International Airport in Virginia. Police said the items tested positive for narcotics. Airports Authority Police Department got the warrant on February 1.

McGowan was released on $5,000 unsecured bond.
