Police in New Hampshire in the US have confirmed that they have an outstanding “active arrest warrant” for Marilyn Manson on charges of assault.

According to the Gilford Police Department, Manson faces two charges of “simple assault” that are “not sexual in nature”. This relates to an incident involving a videographer when Manson played the Bank Of New Hampshire Pavilion in August 2019.

Although the police have not given details of the incident, TMZ reports that Manson spat into the lens of a video camera being used to film the show, also spraying the videographer who has now pressed charges.

Police say that although Manson and his lawyers have been aware of the warrant for “some time”, so far “no effort has been made by him to return to New Hampshire to answer the pending charges”.

If found guilty, Manson could face up to a year in prison and a fine of up to $2000.

Manson, of course, has recently been accused of sexual assault by several women, including actors Evan Rachel Wood and Esmé Bianco. Bianco filed a civil lawsuit against the musician in April. Then last week he was hit with another sexual assault lawsuit by former assistant Ashley Walters.

Manson has previously denied the allegations made by Wood and Bianco. He has not yet commented on the New Hampshire arrest warrant.
