Marilyn Manson Expected To Turn Himself Into LAPD After Alleged Assaults

Marilyn Manson is expected to turn himself in to the Los Angeles Police Department and faces assault charges.

Manson, whose real name is Brian Warner, has a warrant out for his arrest in Gilford, New Hampshire, and faces two counts of Class A Misdemeanor Simple Assault, USA TODAY reports. Manson's lawyers have reached an agreement for the musician to turn himself into LA police.

Gilford Police Chief Tony Burpee in a statement to USA TODAY said his department's prosecutor will forward the warrant to LAPD detectives who will then arrange a specific date and time for Manson to turn himself in.

"We have been in a holding pattern," Burpee said. "We are simply looking for Mr. Warner to turn himself in on the active warrant so that we can proceed."

Manson is expected to be booked and processed by the LAPD, but will be issued a court date with the New Hampshire District Court. 

"If Mr. Warner turns himself in within the next few weeks, his initial appearance/arraignment will likely be scheduled for mid-August," Burpee said. 

Officials say Manson was performing at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion in August 2019 when the assaults allegedly occurred. The alleged assaults involved a videographer in the stage pit, who was subcontracted to film the show, USA TODAY reports.

Manson's attorney Howard King initially called the Gilford Police Department's claim "ludicrous" but said that he and his client "remain committed to cooperating with authorities, as we have done throughout."

Manson also is accused of assault by multiple women, including his ex-fiancé Evan Rachel Wood and "Game of Thrones" actress Esmé Bianco. In April, Bianco filed a lawsuit accusing Manson of sexual assault, sexual battery and human trafficking, and in February, "Westworld" star Wood alleged Manson "horrifically abused" her "for years," USA TODAY reports.
