The 52-year-old shock rocker has been released from police custody on his own recognizance after he surrendered to authorities following assault allegations.
AceShowbiz -Shock rocker Marilyn Manson has been released on his own recognisance after turning himself in to Los Angeles Police Department officials to face allegations of simple assault.
The “Personal Jesus” hitmaker, real name Brian Warner, surrendered to authorities on 2 July (21), after reaching an agreement regarding two outstanding warrants for the misdemeanour, which dates back to an alleged spitting incident with a concert videographer in August, 2019, while performing at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion in Gilford, New Hampshire.
Gilford Police Chief Tony Bean Burpee tells USA Today the singer was booked and released on conditional bail.
As part of the terms of his release, Manson must refrain from committing any crime, have no contact with the alleged victim, and appear at all court proceedings in the case.
The rocker was filmed hurling spit at the camera during the show in question and, while the venue videographer suffered “no injuries,” the star’s actions were considered to constitute “unprivileged physical contact,” reports TMZ.
Manson’s attorney, Howard King, previously dismissed the charges as “ludicrous,” insisting his client is known for being “provocative onstage.”
He added, “We remain committed to cooperating with authorities, as we have done throughout.”
The criminal case is the latest legal headache for Manson – he is also facing lawsuits from four women, accusing him of sexual assault, while previous claims of sex crimes are currently under investigation in Los Angeles.
The scandals have already cost the musician/actor his record label deal, management, and two TV projects.
