Marilyn Manson To Turn Himself In To Police Following Arrest Warrant

Marilyn Manson has agreed to turn himself in to authorities in Los Angeles over an alleged spitting incident in New Hampshire, police said.

A warrant was issued for the arrest of the 52-year-old in May following allegations he spat on a videographer during a performance in the town of Gilford in 2019.

Concert attendees told People they saw Manson 'shoot his snot' at the camerawoman. Manson's attorney Howard King called the allegations 'ludicrous' when the arrest warrant was issued.

Manson - real name Brian Hugh Warner - is facing two counts of Class A misdemeanour simple assault.

A Class A misdemeanour in the state of New Hampshire can carry a possible jail sentence of less than one year and a fine of up to $2,000 (£1,440).

Manson's lawyers have agreed for the star to turn himself in on the warrant in Los Angeles, Gilford police said.

Gilford police chief Anthony Bean Burpee said Manson should now report to the Los Angeles Police Department and would be given a court date across the country in New Hampshire.

Mr Burpee said if Manson turned himself in within the next few weeks, his initial court appearance may be as soon as mid-August.

The officer added sharing the warrant on Facebook put pressure on Manson to answer the case.

Taking to social media, a statement from Gilford Police Department said: "Mr. Warner had been performing a concert at the Bank of NH Pavilion on August 18, 2019, when the alleged simple assaults occurred.

"The issuance of an arrest warrant is not a presumption of guilt.

"The videographer had been subcontracted by a NH based company to video the concert, and had been located in the stage pit area when the alleged assaults occurred."

The statement went on to reference other allegations that Manson is facing, saying: "The alleged assaults are not sexual in nature as has been asked by several other media outlets due to a number of other allegations made against Mr. Warner."

Earlier this year, Game Of Thrones actress Esme Bianco sued Manson, alleging sexual, physical and emotional abuse.

Manson's lawyer called the allegations 'provably false'.

Bianco was one of several women who spoke out after actress Evan Rachel Wood said on social media that Manson sexually, physically and emotionally abused her during their relationship.

Manson's record label and agents dropped him at the time.

In response to the allegations in February, Manson wrote on Instagram that they were 'horrible distortions of reality'.
