Where is Marilyn Manson now? Singer wanted for 'snot assault' on camerawoman hasn't returned to New Hampshire
Three concertgoers said they saw Marilyn Manson spit and 'shoot his snot' at the woman
New Hampshire police has released an arrest warrant for Marilyn Manson in connection with a 'snot battery' on a photographer at one of his 2019 gigs. In August 2019, Manson, 52, allegedly assaulted a woman during a concert in Gilford, New Hampshire. The concert took place at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion, and an arrest warrant was released two months later. The two counts of misdemeanor aggravated assault, according to police, are due to an altercation involving a videographer.
His representatives have denied all the charges, in all the incidents. In the case in New Hampshire, Manson's attorney Howard King said, "This whole claim is ludicrous, but we remain committed to cooperating with authorities."
Where is Marilyn Manson now?
Marilyn Manson, whose real name is Brian Warner, lives in Los Angeles. His home was raided by cops on February 3 for a welfare check in the wake of his continuing sex abuse scandal, according to Fox News. This came days after actress Evan Rachel Wood accused the rocker of "brainwashing and manipulating" her during their relationship on Instagram. Wood is said to have met Manson when she was 18 and he was 36 years old.
According to Vanity Fair, Wood's allegations prompted four more women to come forward on Monday, accusing Manson of "sexual harassment, psychological abuse, and/or various types of bullying, aggression, and intimidation." Later, actress Esme Bianco, known for her role as Ros in 'Game of Thrones', joined in the chorus and said the singer derailed her acting career and left her with physical scars and PTSD.
'Shooting snot' at camerawoman
In the recent charge, according to police, a videographer, who was hired by a New Hampshire company to film the concert, was in the stage pit area when the alleged attack took place. Three concertgoers, including a security officer, said they saw Manson spit and "shoot his snot" at the camerawoman, according to People.
"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," one attendee said to the magazine. "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".
Not returned to NH to face charges
In the most recent charge, Manson has been slapped with two Class A misdemeanor simple assault counts in connection with the episode, which took place on August 18, 2019, in the stage pit area during a concert at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion in Gilford, Anthony J Bean Burpee, the chief of the Gilford Police Department, said in an email on Tuesday night. The arrest warrant was issued two months after the show, on October 8, 2019, according to the New York Times.
Burpee said the warrant had been served on Manson, his agent, and his legal representatives many times, but that Manson had made no attempt to return to New Hampshire to face the charges. He explained that the warrant was made public now "simply because we've been attempting to clear the warrant since it was issued," but that Manson or his lawyer had not responded.
In a letter to People, Manson's attorney Howard King said the misdemeanor charge was taken after the videographer requested $35,000 for the effects on the camera equipment. "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," King said in a statement. "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," said King. "This whole claim is ludicrous, but we remain committed to cooperating with authorities, as we have done throughout,' King added.
