Marilyn Manson Surrenders Himself To The Police Over The Spitting Incident
Marilyn Manson who is constantly making headlines for sexual abuse allegations from more than a dozen women recently turned himself in and was released without bail for assault charges after being accused of ‘shooting his snot’ at a camerawoman in 2019.
For those of you who may not remember, a New Hampshire police department had an active arrest warrant for Marilyn Manson after a venue videographer demanded more than $35,000, alleging that the musician spit and ‘shoot his snot’ at her camera and herself during a concert in 2019. Following the accusations, Manson’s attorney Howard King stated that the musician acts provocatively on stage oftentimes, however, the way the incident has been portrayed is ridiculous.
According to People Magazine, Manson’s attorney Howard King stated:
“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. 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. This whole claim is ludicrous, but we remain committed to cooperating with authorities, as we have done throughout.”
Three concert attendees including a security guard opened up about the incident during an interview with People Magazine and stated that Marilyn Manson was spitting everywhere during the concert. The incident that fueled the camerawoman was when Manson got close to her and shoot his snot directly at her rather than the camera. According to the statement, the musician laughed and had fun while doing these as the women left furiously.
One attendee’s statement follows:
“He was spitting everywhere and one time it got on her camera so she wiped it off and looked semi-irritated. 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.”
While the incident happened two years ago, Marilyn Manson recently turned himself into the Hollywood division of the Los Angeles Police Department. After reaching a deal with Gilford Police Department in New Hampshire regarding the notorious incident which was named as ‘simple assault charges,’ Manson was released without bail on the same day.
