Previously, McGowan commented on the arrest warrant on Twitter, calling the warrent "horsesh*t".
After apparently learning about the charge last month, McGowan, whose name has hit the headlines with the onslaught on Weinstein coverage, tweeted: "Are they trying to silence me?"
McGowan has claimed that the charges would have been made to go away, had she agreed to remain silent about Weinstein.
McGowan said she had been raped by Weinstein after The New York Times published its bombshell investigation detailing allegations of sexual harassment and abuse at the hands the producer. McGowan said that back in 1997 she reached a $100,000 settlement with the Hollywood executive for "an episode in a hotel room during the Sundance Film Festival".
The old £10 note will go out of circulation in March 2018
This means shops will no longer be able to accept the old notes after 1 March, but it doesn't mean they are worthless. Old pound coins can no longer be spent, but can be donated to charity or deposited into customer bank accounts.
