Marilyn Manson will surrender to Los Angeles authorities on an active arrest warrant for allegedly assaulting a videographer in New Hampshire.
The Los Angeles Times reported that Gilford Police Chief Anthony Bean Burpee said Manson, who was born Brian Hugh Warner, would turn himself in to the Los Angeles Police Department following an arrest warrant issued on October 8, 2019.
The arrest warrant, which Gilford authorities made public in May 2021, charges Manson, 52, with “two counts of Class A Misdemeanor Simple Assault stemming from a 2019 incident at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion,” an outdoor amphitheater in Gilford.
The LA Times reported that a videographer contracted to film Manson’s concert was in the stage pit when she was allegedly assaulted. The report, which specified that the incident was not sexual, also said the videographer alerted authorities of the alleged assault the day after the concert. Still, the investigation took several months to complete.
When the arrest warrant was first made public, the Gilford Police Department said in a Facebook post that “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 post specified that a “Class A misdemeanor in NH can carry a possible jail sentence of less than one year and a fine of $2,000.00 or less.”
Manson will surrender to the LAPD as part of an agreement between New Hampshire officials and Manson’s attorney, the LA Times reported. Burpee said if Manson surrenders within the next few weeks, his initial court appearance in New Hampshire could happen by mid-August.
Representatives for Manson and the Gilford Police Department did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
The agreement comes after Manson has faced multiple allegations of sexual assault.
In a February Instagram post, actress Evan Rachel Wood shared details of alleged sexual abuse she experienced during her relationship with Manson, who she was engaged to in 2010. They began dating in 2007 when Wood was 19 and Manson was 38 years old.
Wood accused Manson of “grooming” her as a teenager and “horrifically” abusing her.
“Game of Thrones” actress Esmé Bianco came out a month later with a lawsuit against Manson and his former manager. Bianco accused Manson of sexual assault and battery.
In a statement shared to Instagram in February, Manson denied Wood’s allegations.
“Obviously, my art and my life have long been magnets for controversy, but these recent claims about me are horrible distortions of reality,” wrote Manson. “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.”
