Police in New Hampshire issued an arrest warrant for Marilyn Manson on Tuesday, May 25. Fox News reported that the arrest warrant was issued after the rock star allegedly failed to answer pending charges for a 2019 incident concerning a videographer.

Marilyn Manson's Arrest Warrant Issued by Police in New Hampshire
Marilyn Manson's two assault charges stemmed from an incident at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion, a local outdoor amphitheater.
The singer was performing there when the assaults allegedly occurred on Aug. 18, 2019. The alleged assaults involved a videographer in the stage pit, who was subcontracted to film the concert, Fox News reported.
Authorities did not release the identity of the videographer involved in the case. The Gilford Police Department that Marilyn Manson, his agent, and legal counsel have been aware of the warrant for some time.
However, the police department noted that the rock star had made no effort to return to New Hampshire to answer the pending charges.
A concert attendee told People that the "Sweet Dreams" singer had no regard for the cameraperson when he allegedly carried on spitting at the photog during the concert. Manson even allegedly "bent down to shoot his snot" all over the female camerawoman.
In a statement issued to Fox News, Manson's attorney, Howard King, said the misdemeanor claim was pursued after receiving a demand from the videographer for over $35,000 for "a small amount of spit" that came into contact with her arm. But when they asked for evidence of any alleged damages, King said they never received a reply.
A Class A misdemeanor in New Hampshire can carry a possible jail sentence of less than a year and a fine of $2,000 or less. The police department noted that the alleged assault was not sexual.
Another Sexual Abuse Allegations Surfaced Against Marilyn Manson
The arrest warrant came almost a week after another woman joined the roster of those accusing Marilyn Manson of sexual harassment and sexual assault.
Ashley Walters, Manson's former assistant, also accused the singer of sexual assault, harassment, and battery. Walters, 37, joined Esmé Bianco and Ashley Smithline in accusing the rock star of the same crimes.
The Cut reported that Walters went to Manson's residence in West Hollywood in May 2010 to look at the singer's paintings, and when she tried to leave at around 2 a.m, Manson claimed that the parking lot was closed until 7 a.m. and then asked her to do a photoshoot.
Walters, an aspirant photographer, was asked by Marilyn Manson to take off her shirt. The rock star allegedly pushed Walters on the bed, pinned her down, and tried to kiss her as well as biting her ear and placed her hand on his underwear.
Walters confirmed with The Cut that she was able to roll the bed and left the residence as soon as the parking lot opened. A former member of the singer's inner circle, who remained anonymous, told The Cut that they witnessed Marilyn Manson ordering Walters to sit on men's laps during her work as Manson's assistant.
In the fall of 2020, a group of Marilyn Manson's ex-girlfriends, including Bianco, reached out to Walters and made her realized that what the girls experienced was the same as hers.
"My end goal is just to hold him [Marilyn Manson] accountable," said Walters.
