Marilyn Manson is wanted in New Hampshire on an arrest warrant for allegedly assaulting a videographer at an outdoor amphitheater in 2019, according to authorities.
According to police, Manson is charged with two counts of misdemeanor simple assault in connection with the alleged altercation at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion in Gilford.
In August 2019, the shock rocker performed with Rob Zombie at the venue.
The alleged attack occurred at the performance, according to TMZ, when Manson allegedly spat into a camera that was shown onto large screens.
According to the complaint, some of Manson’s saliva struck the videographer, who had been hired by the venue.
According to TMZ, being spit on constitutes “unprivileged physical contact.”
In a Facebook post that included a photo of Manson, the Gilford Police Department announced the existence of Manson’s arrest warrant.
The warrant has been known to Manson, 52, his agent, and his lawyer for some time, according to the department.
However, the agency stated in its statement that “no effort has been made by him to return to New Hampshire to answer the pending charges.”
After nearly a dozen women, including actresses Evan Rachel Wood and Esmé Bianco, accused Manson of various levels of sexual, psychological, and physical abuse, news of his alleged attack on the videographer broke.
In the aftermath of the incident, Manson, who was dropped by his record company and longtime manager, has asserted that the claims are “terrible distortions of reality.”
