Marylin Manson has ARREST warrant out for him in New Hampshire over 2019 'snot assault' of concert camerawoman
POLICE are on the lookout for Marilyn Manson after the singer was accused of spitting on a videographer during a concert in 2019.
New Hampshire police have issued a warrant for Manso, real name Brian Warner, in Gilford, following two misdemeanor counts of simple assault.
"The Gilford Police Department has an active arrest warrant for Brian Hugh Warner (aka: Marilyn Manson) for two counts of Class A misdemeanor," the Gilford Department stated in a Facebook post.
"The alleged assaults involved a videographer," it went on. "Mr. Warner, his agent and legal counsel have been aware of the warrant for some time and no effort has been made by him to return to New Hampshire to answer the pending charges."
"Mr. Warner had been performing a concert at the Bank of NH Pavilion on August 18, 2019, when the alleged simple assaults occurred," detailed the post.
"The issuance of an arrest warrant is not a presumption of guilt," it went on."The videographer had been subcontracted by a NH-based company to video the concert, and had been located in the stage pit area when the alleged assaults occurred."
Should Manson be found guilty, the Class A misdemeanor carries with it a possible jail sentence of less than one year and a fine of $2,000.
The allegationi refers to an unidentified videographer who claims Manson spit on their arm while they filmed his concert on August 18, 2019.
Police have said the assaults "are not sexual in nature" and that the videographer was in the piit at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion at the time of the concert.
Howard King, Manson's attorney, said the case was "ludicrous," and disagreed with police, saying Manson had cooperated with police in their investigation.
“This misdemeanor claim was pursued after we received a demand from a venue videographer for more than $35,000 after a small amount of spit came into contact with their arm," King said in a statement.
"After we asked for evidence of any alleged damages, we never received a reply," King added. “This whole claim is ludicrous, but we remain committed to cooperating with authorities, as we have done throughout.”
Unrelated to Manson's New Hampshire charges, a number of women ahve claimed they were sexually and physically assaulted by Mason.
Actresses Evan Rachel Wood and Esme Bianco have claimed the 52-year-old sexual and physically assaulted them.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department is investigating the reported abuse.
