Laconia, New Hampshire — A lawyer pleaded not guilty on behalf of rock singer Marilyn Manson, who was accused of approaching a videographer at a concert in New Hampshire in 2019 and allegedly Spit and blow her nose at her.
Manson’s legal name is Brian Hugh Warner, and he surrendered to the Los Angeles police in July in connection with the 2019 arrest warrant. These allegations are detailed in a police affidavit, which was issued with the criminal proceedings.
Manson was charged with two misdemeanors, the charges stemmed from a quarrel at the Bank of New Hampshire in Guildford on August 19, 2019. If convicted, each misdemeanor charge could result in less than one year in prison and a fine of $2,000.
An arraignment hearing on these allegations is scheduled for Thursday, but a lawyer for Manson filed a plea of innocence and immunity from arraignment in the Laconia District Court. The case status hearing is scheduled for December 27th.
The cameraman Susan Fountain was allegedly in the stage repair area of the venue when the attack occurred. Her company Metronome Media signed a contract for the concert season with the Bank of New Hampshire.
According to the affidavit, Manson approached the fountain for the first time, brought his face close to the camera, and threw a “big sofa” at her. Her hands were hit by saliva.
Manson allegedly returned for the second time, covering one of his nostrils and blowing in the direction of the fountain. Fountain put down the camera and went to the bathroom to wash his hands and arms with Manson’s body fluids.
