Marilyn Manson surrendered to Los Angeles authorities Thursday in connection with assault charges he faces in New Hampshire.
Manson, 52, was released without bail after turning himself in at a Hollywood police station, People reported.
Under a deal reached with the Gilford, NH Police Department, Manson will travel to New England in August to be arraigned on two misdemeanor charges stemming from an incident in which the rocker allegedly spit on a camerawoman during a 2019 concert.
“He was spitting everywhere and one time it got on her camera so she wiped it off and looked semi-irritated,” one witness told the magazine.
“I think her final straw is he got on the floor, got within 2-3 feet of her and hacked a giant snot rocket at her, not the camera. She was pissed off and disgusted so she stormed off and he just laughed.”
Manson’s attorney called the claim “ludicrous,” but said “The Beautiful People” singer, born Brian Warner, is “committed to cooperating with authorities,” according to the article.
If convicted, Manson could face a jail sentence of less than one year and a fine of up to $2,000, according to the report.
Manson’s cross-country legal battle comes after more than a dozen women, including actresses Evan Rachel Wood and Esmé Bianco — accused him of abuse.
The gothic shock-rocker denied the accusations, but he was dumped by his record label as well as his longtime manager in the aftermath of the scandal.
