American singer-songwriter born Brian Hugh Warner, known professionally as Marilyn Manson has a warrant out for his arrest in New Hampshire.
Charges stem from 2019 assault allegation.
Mason is facing two counts of misdemeanor simple assault for allegedly spitting at a videographer during a 2019 concert.
A New Hampshire police department says it has issued an arrest warrant for Marilyn Manson.
According to a Facebook post on Tuesday evening, the Gilford Police Department said it had issued an active arrest warrant for Brian Hugh Warner Manson’s legal name.
“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,” the department said it in a Facebook post on Tuesday.
In a statement to NBC News, an attorney for Manson called the claim “ludicrous” and said Manson was committed to working with authorities.
If convicted, the department said Manson would face a maximum sentence of less than one year in prison and a fine of $2,000 or less.
The charge is the latest controversy for Manson, who was accused of abuse of abuse by two former girlfriends earlier this year.
Actress Esme Bianco also accused Manson of abuse during their relationship in the 00’s.
The Los Angeles County Sherriff’s Department said in February that it is investigating Manson following accusations of domestic violence between 2009 and 2011.
The Gilford Police Department said Tuesday that the charges against Manson were not sexual in nature.
