Marilyn Manson Pleads Not Guilty In Concert Spitting Assault Case


Among Marilyn Manson‘s current various legal battles is a misdemeanor assault case. Those two charges stem from an August 18th, 2019 show he performed in Gilford, NH. During that concert he was seen to have spit on the camera of a videographer who was hired by the venue to film the show. Said videographer’s feed was being broadcast to the big screens behind Manson during the time of the incident. The person filming decided to file assault charges after allegedly being hit by some of Manson‘s spit.

Authorities in Gilford, NH issued an arrest warrant for Manson in relation to the matter back in October of 2019, though it was only this past July when he turned himself into authorities for the matter. According to Deadline, Manson has newly issued a not guilty plea in a New Hampshire district court via his legal team. The next hearing on the matter will be held this December.

Outside of this matter, Manson is currently facing four lawsuits with claims and allegations ranging from sexual assault and grooming to human trafficking and more. Those who are currently suing him include his ex-girlfriend Esmé Bianco, his former personal assistant Ashley Walters, his former girlfriend Ashley Morgan Smithline and a woman who has chosen to remain anonymous.

Manson previously denied the various initial allegations made against him this past February, issuing this statement.
