Bangor Maine Police Department Apologizes For Temporarily ‘Arresting’ Marilyn Manson


The Bangor Maine Police Department has issued a statement explaining why Marilyn Manson was seen being detained in handcuffs by an officer while backstage at this past weekend’s ‘Impact Music Festival‘ in Bangor, Maine. Manson himself briefly shared some footage of the detainment via his Instagram (see below,) though did not provide context.

The aforementioned police department have since issued the official statement on the matter:

“In the interest of saving us a whole lot of call-backs, Marilyn Manson was merely handcuffed and released immediately thereafter.

Officer Curtis Grenier, typically listening to only Enya, and a little bit of Oasis, was posted backstage during the Impact Music Festival. He did not recognize Mr. Manson without his stage makeup- our apologies.

Later, when approaching Rob Zombie, Officer Grenier was overheard saying, “I have never seen him in the Walking Dead, so I don’t know what the big deal is.”

Grenier has been spoken to and relieved of back-stage concert related duties for the foreseeable future. The Chief has determined that Grenier can work backstage during Lord of the Dance or anything related to Disney.

Keep your hands to yourself, leave other people’s things alone, and be kind to one another.

We will be here.

With the Beautiful People.
