Marilyn Manson Is Wanted For Assault In New Hampshire

May 26, 2021 / Posted by:

If you’ve been following along with Marilyn Manson’s recent appearances in the news, then seeing that he’s wanted for assault might have made you recoil again. But in a bit of a switch up, this story isn’t another update to Marilyn Manson’s Wikipedia section that covers all his #MeToo allegations. There is currently a warrant out for his arrest, for an altercation that took place between himself and a videographer during a concert back in 2019.

NBC News reports that New Hampshire police have in their possession an arrest warrant for Marilyn, should he enter the granite state. Marilyn Manson is facing two counts of misdemeanor simple assault for the August 18, 2019 incident. He was performing at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion in Gilford, NH (that’s an outdoor venue) when he allegedly got into it with a videographer, who was subcontracted by an NH company to record the performance. The alleged assault happened in a stage pit area, and NH police don’t specify what exactly happened. But we do know NH police obtained an arrest warrant back in October 2019, and they decided to bring it up again because, in more than a year and a half, Marilyn Manson has been dodging their calls and hasn’t done shit about contacting them to settle this. They released the following statement asking Brian Warner (Marilyn Manson’s real name) to please stop avoiding this:

“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.”

A Class A misdemeanor in New Hampshire, which is what Marilyn Manson is facing, can carry a possible sentence of less than a year in jail and a fine of $2000 or less. Marilyn Manson’s lawyer Howard King fired back, and he came through with several allegations that subsequently filled in the missing info from the NH police’s warrant report. According to Marilyn Manson’s lawyer, the misdemeanor claim was pursued after the videographer allegedly “demanded” $35,000 in damages after a “small amount” of Marilyn’s spit landed on the videographer’s arm. Spit? Ew. Even Shamu warns you first that you’re sitting in the Splash Zone.

Marilyn Manson’s lawyers asked for evidence of any alleged damage done, and when they weren’t provided any, they considered this situation dead and done. Not only that, Marilyn Manson’s lawyers are accusing the videographer of basically asking for an arm full of spit because Marilyn Manson has very strict standards for his concerts to be the kind of mess that tests the limits of boundaries, space, and good taste:

“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,” Howard King said.

Call me crazy, but it’s kind of hard to convince people you’re all about consent and mutual respect when you also think, “You got my wet DNA on your body, so what? Deal with it! That’s rock n’ roll, baybee.” But Marilyn Manson probably shouldn’t be casual about this arrest warrant. He thinks it’s just a little spit. But Marilyn Manson has also previously admitted to smoking human bones. I can only imagine the toxic cocktail that’s created when you mix femur smoke and Marilyn Manson’s gross saliva, and I’m pretty sure there are very serious EPA laws regarding the distribution of biohazardous materials.
