Actress Rose McGowan, who has been an outspoken voice in the Harvey Weinstein scandal, said that a months-old warrant for her arrest is an attempt to keep her quiet.

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 reports.

Police have said the items tested positive for narcotics although did not give further details as to what type of substances were found. Officials from the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority Police Department told the outlet they have reached out to ask McGowan to make a court appearance in Virginia on a felony charge.

"Are they trying to silence me?" she tweeted.

Nearly as soon as the news broke, the actress took to Twitter to describe the allegations as "horseshit" and said that this was an attempt to silence her.

McGowan, 44, was allegedly raped by Weinstein at the Sundance Film Festival in 1997, and the Times reported that she received a $100,000 settlement in the wake of the incident.

The fact there was a warrant out for the star's arrest surfaced after the actress brought it upon social media on Monday. "There is a warrant out for my arrest in Virginia", McGowan tweeted Monday afternoon. "What a load of HORSES-".

"The warrant is in a national law enforcement database".

Rose has been one of the leading figures in taking on the sexual harassment/assault problem in Hollywood. "I have been slut shamed, I've been harassed, I've been maligned".

McGowan has been the most outspoken of the dozens of women accusing movie mogul Harvey Weinstein of sexual misconduct in recent weeks. "I will support you always #RoseArmy".
