In connection with a 2019 robbery, police in New Hampshire issued an arrest warrant for singer Marilyn Manson.
The Gilford Police Department said in a statement on Facebook that Manson, born Bryan Hugh Warner, is wanted for two counts of misdemeanor simple assault of a videographer during an Aug. 18, 2019, show at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion.
“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.
The videographer, who was subcontracted by a local company to record the concert, was in a stage pit area when the alleged assault took place.
In New Hampshire, a Class A misdemeanour conviction carries a potential prison term of less than one year and a fine of $2,000 or less.
The police department stated that the suspected attacks were not sexual in nature, citing media inquiries “due to a number of other allegations made against Mr. Warner.”
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department launched an investigation into Manson in February after several women, including his ex-fiancée, actress Evan Rachel Wood, and Game of Thrones actress Esmé Bianco, accused him of rape.
Manson denied the allegations in a post on Instagram at the time.
“Obviously, my art and my life have long been magnets for controversy, but these recent claims about me are horrible distortions of reality,” he wrote. “My intimate relationships have always been entirely consensual with like-minded partners. Regardless of how — and why — others are now choosing to misrepresent the past, that is the truth.”
Bianco accused Manson of sexual harassment in a civil complaint brought in May in the United States District Court for the Central District of California.
