Singer Marilyn Manson was arrested by California police after surrendering to an outstanding New Hampshire arrest warrant.
Chief Anthony J. Bean Burpee of the Gilford Police Department in New Hampshire confirmed that Manson, whose real name is Brian Hugh Warner, turned himself in to Los Angeles police on July 2 for an order for “acts alleged to have taken place” on August 19, 2019, while performing at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion in Gilford, NH. “
Gilford police said in May that the arrest warrant for two misdemeanors was issued in October 2019 and that Manson has “been aware of the ruling for some time,”
Manson was treated and released under “personal recognition bail” and other conditions, including that he has no contact with the alleged victim, Burpee wrote.
“As an agency, we are pleased with Mr Warner’s decision to finally address the arrest warrant that has been outstanding since 2019,” Burpee said in a statement.
Burpee said Manson’s court date will be set after New Hampshire authorities receive bail papers in the Los Angeles Post.
“Sir. Warner’s attorney knows the date when it has been confirmed with him, “Burpee said.
Kent M. Barker, Manson’s attorney, did not immediately respond to a request from NBC News for comment.
A Manson representative declined to comment.
When the arrest warrant was first announced in May, Howard King, a lawyer for Manson, called the allegations “ridiculous” and said: “It’s no secret to anyone who’s attended a Marilyn Manson concert that he likes to be provocative. the stage, especially in front of a camera. ”
“This offense was prosecuted after we received a claim from a local videographer for more than $ 35,000 after a small amount of saliva came in contact with their arm. After we asked for evidence of any alleged damage, we never received a response. , “King said.
A number of allegations have been made against Manson in recent months, all unrelated to the arrest warrant in New Hampshire.
Phoebe Bridgers said in February that she had seen Manson point out what he called a rape room in her home when she visited as a teenager.
Her Twitter statement came days after actress Evan Rachel Wood, Manson’s former partner, said the singer had abused her.
In an Instagram post shared the same day as Woods’ accusation, Manson said “my art and my life have long been magnets of controversy, but these recent allegations about me are horrific distortions of reality. My intimate relationships have always been in complete agreement. with like-minded partners. No matter how – and why – others now choose to reject the past, that’s the truth. “
The LA County Sheriff has confirmed that they have launched an investigation into the violence of the Gothic rock star.
In April, Manson was sued by Game of Thrones actor Esmé Bianco, who claimed he dangled fake job opportunities and used “power and / or threats of power” to get his way.
In response to Bianco’s suit, King said in a statement obtained by PEOPLE magazine that the singer would “strongly dispute these allegations in court.”
“To be clear, this case was filed only after my client refused to be shaken by Mrs Bianco and her lawyer and to give in to their outrageous financial demands based on behavior that simply never took place,” King wrote in the statement.
In May, Manson’s former personal assistant also sued him, alleging sexual exploitation and psychological abuse. Manson’s representative at the time denied any allegations of assault.
Also in May, an unnamed ex-partner filed a lawsuit against Manson under the name “Jane Doe,” who claimed the singer had raped her; a member of Manson’s team “denied” these allegations in a statement to NBC News at the time.
A representative of Esme Bianco tells NBC News that the FBI and LAPD have interviewed Bianco on several occasions since February and that she is in active talks with law enforcement.
The FBI said it would not confirm or deny any investigation.
Manson declined through a spokesman to comment on the allegation that authorities have interviewed Bianco.
The LAPD declined to comment further.
