Rose McGowan to face grand jury on drug charge

Actress Rose McGowan says the drugs found in her Chanel wallet left behind on a United Airlines flight isn’t hers. Nevertheless, McGowan could face indictment in Virginia on a felony drug-possession charge after a judge found probable cause to send the case to a grand jury.

McGowan unsuccessfully sought to have the charges dismissed at a preliminary hearing in Leesburg.

She has suggested in court papers that the drugs may have been planted by agents hired by disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein.

McGowan was among the first actresses to accuse Weinstein of sexual assault. Weinstein has denied rape allegations. McGowan and others say Weinstein aggressively sought to discredit his accusers.

Authorities say cocaine was found in a wallet McGowan left behind on a flight to Dulles International Airport last year.
