Rose McGowan: Arrested on “Drug Charges” While Fans Cry Foul!

One of the biggest fears that kept so many people silent about their experiences before the Harvey Weinstein rape accusations and the numerous outings that have followed was the fear of reprisal.

Well, Rose McGowan spoke up. In fact, she’s been one of the most prominent voices in the efforts to expose and cast out harassers and abusers in the entertainment industry.

And now she’s been arrested … for drug charges that date back to the beginning of 2017.

If you’d told us years ago that Rose McGowan was going to be at the forefront of a chorus of brave voices calling for a shift in the culture that makes women afraid to be alone with their male coworkers …

Actually, we’d have believed you.

It was in 2016 that Rose McGowen revealed that she’d been raped by a Hollywood executive.

We didn’t know by whom, at the time, though rumors have surrounded a number of powerful men in Hollywood for years and even decades.

Almost exactly one year after she revealed her sexual assault, Rose McGowan named Harvey Weinstein as her rapist.

She was, at that point, adding her voice to others — who had accused Weinstein of grotesque harassment as well as sexual assault.

But we still cannot imagine the kind of bravery that she needed to muster in order to speak up.

It appears that Rose McGowan’s outspokenness may have come back to bite her.

We don’t know if this is some sort of reprisal or just a very unfortunate and unjust coincidence.

Just at the end of October, we learned that a warrant for Rose McGowan’s arrest had been issued.

The warrant was issued in Virginia.

See, Rose McGowan apparently behind a bag on a plane.

(Never do that, folks — you might lose it, and someone might also assume that it’s a bomb and start a panic)

Allegedly, tests showed that there were traces of an illicit substance — cocaine — on the bag.

We’re talking about traces, here, so aside from the fact that every adult has the natural right to put whatever they want to in their bodies, this sounds like pretty thin evidence.

Also, “trace evidence” of drugs is notorious for producing false positives. Most people just don’t have the resources to fight a charge and they cop a plea.

The warrant for her arrest was obtained on February 1st, but apparently nobody bothered to tell Rose McGowan until late October.

Maybe they saw her name in the news and somebody got excited at the idea of arresting a celebrity. But some, Rose included, have wondered if there might have been something more serious at work.

“Are they trying to silence me? There is a warrant out for my arrest in Virginia,” Rose tweeted. “What a load of HORSES–T!”

But, as ridiculous as the whole situation sounds, Rose McGowan traveled to Virginia and turned herself in.

She was booked, briefly, before being released on $ 5,000 bond.

This is Rose McGowan’s first arrest. She has a reputation for “making trouble,” but that’s only because she calls out people and has zero chill about it.

Is this suddenly revived warrant revenge or an attempt to silence her and others? If so, it’s not working. Women are still coming forward every day.

But with the timing of everything, we can understand why Rose and many of her fans would have their suspicions.

The whole scenario is very weird.


Adam Lind: Arrested for Domestic Assault!

Look, we know that Adam Lind isn’t a great guy, and we also know that that is a pretty massive understatement.

He’s been accused of killing puppies. The guy’s a monster.

But even though we’re all very, very aware of his many issues, it’s always a little shocking to hear of his ongoing shenanigans.

Though this time around, Adam is not so much into shenanigans as he is into committing actual crimes.

Violent crimes, even.

On Thursday night around 8:00, he was arrested and hauled off to the local county jail where he was held without bond. He was charged with domestic simple assault.

He has four counts against him: attempting to cause bodily harm, recklessly attempting to cause bodily harm, attempting to cause imminent bodily harm, and intentionally causing bodily harm.

We don’t know who the victim was in all of this, but we do know that he pleaded not guilty in court on Friday morning.

After his hearing, he was released on bond, but he’ll have to return to court on December 21st.

Hopefully a good, long sentence for him will be the Christmas present we all deserve.

And really, jail time doesn’t seem to be out of the question for him — remember that whole meth debacle from earlier this year?

As part of his custody agreement, he has to take occasional drug tests, and in April, he failed one for having a “substantial” amount of meth in his system just hours before a visit with his youngest daughter, Paislee.

After that, his visitation rights were suspended for a while, at least his visitation with Paislee.

There’s a chance Chelsea Houska could have gone to court as well to suspend his visits with Aubree, but if she did, it didn’t last for long — thanks to Teen Mom 2, we know that he at least spent Father’s Day with her.

Besides all the meth, we also know that Adam has fallen behind on his child support payments again, so much that Taylor Halbur took the matter to court in August.

He got so behind on the payments last year that two warrants were issued for his arrest — one of Paislee, and one for Aubree.

So between the child support, the meth, all of his many, many previous arrests, and now the assault charges …

Surely they’ll be able to put him away this time.

Right? Please?
