Two active arrest warrants have been issued against the singer/songwriter in the US state of New Hampshire.
According to a statement released by Gilford Police Department in New Hampshire, Marilyn Manson is wanted for two counts of assault.
Manson, whose real name is Brian Hugh Warner, is wanted for "two counts of Class A misdemeanor Simple Assault". The altercation occurred between the performer and a videographer at The Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion during Manson’s performance at the venue on August 18, 2019.
The statement also alleges that Manson and his agents and counsel have already been made aware of the warrant "for some time". It continues that "no effort has been made by him to return to New Hampshire to answer the pending charges".
Should Marilyn Manson own up to the charges and return back to New Hampshire, he could face jail time and fines. Each charge carries a possible jail sentence of less than one year and a fine of $2,000.
Pitchfork received a statement from Manson’s attorney, Howard King, which read: "It is no secret to anyone who has attended a Marilyn Manson concert that he likes to be provocative on stage, especially in front of a camera. 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.
"After we asked for evidence of any alleged damages, we never received a reply. This whole claim is ludicrous, but we remain committed to cooperating with authorities, as we have done throughout."
Marilyn Manson is currently under investigation for domestic violence abuse in Los Angeles. Multiple women, including Evan Rachel Wood, Esmé Bianco, and his former assistant Ashley Waters, have come forward with allegations of physical and sexual abuse against the performer.
