Singer Marilyn Manson is now a wanted man in New Hampshire for an alleged assault of a videographer, and police say the musician refuses to face the charges.
The Gilford Police Department announced on May 25 they have arrest warrants for Manson — real name Brian Hugh Warner — for two counts of simple assault. Both charges are misdemeanors.
The assaults allegedly happened in 2019 during a performance at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion, according to the department. The videographer was subcontracted to record the concert and was in a stage pit area when the alleged assault happened.
Police say the suspected assaults were not sexually based.
Officers have made Manson, his agent and his lawyer aware of the allegations “for some time,” and there has been no action to return to New Hampshire to face the charges, according to the department.
Each charge carries a penalty of less than a year in jail and a fine of up to $2,000.
