Last night (Tuesday, May 25th), an active arrest warrant was issued for Marilyn Manson by the Gilford, New Hampshire police department. He is being charged with two counts of misdemeanor simple assault for allegedly spitting on a female videographer at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion during a concert in August of 2019.
The charges against Brian Warner, which is Manson's legal name, are a Class A misdemeanor and can carry a jail sentence of up to one year and a $2,000 fine, People.com reports.
Three concert-goers confirmed to People they saw Manson spit and “shoot his snot” at the camerawoman. One source said, “He was spitting everywhere and one time it got on her camera so she wiped it off and looked semi-irritated. He noticed this and kept purposely spitting on her camera. I think her final straw is he got on the floor, got within 2-3 feet of her and hacked a giant snot rocket at her not the camera. She was pissed off and disgusted so she stormed off and he just laughed.”
According to a statement from the Gilford Police Department, “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 . . .”
Manson was in Gilford on August 19, 2019 for the final stop of the co-headlining Hell Never Dies tour with Rob Zombie.
