Deadline reports that Marilyn Manson's attorneys pleaded not guilty to the two misdemeanor counts of simple assault the shock rocker is facing in New Hampshire.
Manson was wanted for "two counts of simple assault" for allegedly spitting on a videographer during a concert on August 18th, 2019 at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion. Manson reached an agreement with the Gilford, New Hampshire police department's in-house prosecutor. Manson will turn himself into the police in Los Angeles. There, the police will go through the booking and bail process with Manson before he receives a court date in New Hampshire.
TMZ reported previously that Manson turned himself in on July 8th. He was booked and then released on personal recognizance bail. The terms of his release were that he won't commit any crimes while released, won't contact the alleged victim and Manson agrees to appear at all of his court hearings.
TMZ obtained footage that shows Manson sticking his face right in the camera and spitting a loogie. Allegedly, the videographer claimed some of the Manson's spit got on the videographer, resulting in the videographer going to authorities to press charges. The police department said that while the alleged victim didn't suffer any injuries, Manson was charged because spitting constitutes "unprivileged physical contact."
These charges could each result in a jail sentence of less than a year and a $2,000 fine if convicted.
While this is one legal battle that is being resolved, Manson still has four active lawsuits from women claiming he assaulted them.
