Rose McGowan says she'll plead not guilty to felony drug possession in Virginia on the basis that cocaine found in her wallet might have been planted. McGowan tells the New Yorker the wallet was inside a backpack she left unattended while using the restroom on a Jan. 20 United flight to Washington Dulles International Airport. The wallet was later found on the plane. But though police say it contained two small bags of cocaine, McGowan denies using the drug, adding, "I knew I was being followed" at the time. McGowan turned herself in to authorities on Tuesday before being released on a $5,000 bond, per People. (Read more Rose McGowan stories.)
