Oct. 31 (UPI) -- Rose McGowan spoke out against a warrant for her arrest issued in January after airport police said they found traces of narcotics in her belongings.

"Her personal belongings that were left behind from a flight arriving on Jan. 20 tested positive for narcotics," spokesman for the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Police Department Rob Yingling said in a statement. "Our police have attempted to contact Ms. McGowan so that she can appear in a Loudoun County, Va., court to respond to the charge."

The charge against McGowan who has been at the center of the Harvey Weinstein sexual assault scandal, is a felony. McGowan has also been entered into a national law enforcement database.

"Are they trying to silence me? There is a warrant out for my arrest in Virginia. What a load of [expletive]," McGowan tweeted Monday in response to the warrant.

McGowan, who was among the several woman who told the New York Times that Weinstein sexually assaulted them, has used Twitter to slam the film producer and others in Hollywood accused of sexual misconduct including Kevin Spacey.

"Bye bye, Spacey goodbye, it's your turn to cry, that's why we've gotta say goodbye. #ROSEARMY," she tweeted following allegations from actor Anthony Rapp that Spacey tried to seduce him when he was 14.

Recently, McGowan canceled all public appearances citing "compounding factors" related to the Weinstein controversy.
