Marilyn Manson turned himself into the Los Angeles Police Department on Friday, July 2, on two outstanding warrants for misdemeanor simple assault stemming from a 2019 incident with a videographer at a 2019 concert in Gilford, New Hampshire.
Manson, whose real name is Brian Warner, was booked and later released on personal recognizance bail on the conditions that he not commit any crimes while on release, appear at all court proceedings and have no contact with the alleged victim.
Gilford Police Chief Anthony Burpee, who previously announced an agreement with the LAPD and Manson’s attorney Howard King, said he was “pleased with Mr. Warner’s decision to finally address the arrest warrant that has been outstanding since 2019.”
The charges stem from an incident in which a female videographer was in the stage pit area during a concert at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion on August 18, 2019, when Manson allegedly spat on her.
“He was spitting everywhere and one time it got on her camera so she wiped it off and looked semi-irritated,” a concertgoer told People. “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.”
The assault charges against Manson are unrelated to several other lawsuits filed against the shock-rocker by his former girlfriends accusing him of abuse.
