UPDATE: A not guilty plea has been entered on behalf of singer Marilyn Manson in a district court in New Hampshire. Manson has been accused of approaching a videographer at his 2019 concert in New Hampshire and allegedly spitting and blowing snot on her.
Manson surrendered in July to police in Los Angeles in connection with the 2019 arrest warrant in the case. A status hearing on the case is now set for late December.
Manson was charged with two misdemeanor counts of simple assault stemming from the alleged incident at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion in Gilford, New Hampshire. The misdemeanor charges can each result in a jail sentence of less than a year and a $2,000 fine if convicted.
UPDATE: As expected, Marilyn Manson has turned himself in to face assault charges in a New Hampshire incident.
Manson was processed and released in Los Angeles on personal recognizance bail and can’t have contact with the alleged victim.

EARLIER: Singer Marilyn Manson’s legal woes continued today. The shock rock star has agreed to turn himself in to Los Angeles police on an active arrest warrant stemming from a 2019 New Hampshire incident.
The 2019 New Hampshire incident claims Manson spit and shot snot at a video camera person during a concert. The warrant was issued in May in Gilford, New Hampshire after Manson failed to answer charges lodged against him in that jurisdiction.
Manson, real name Bryan Hugh Warner, is facing two counts of Class A misdemeanor simple assault. He could be arraigned on the charges by mid-August and does not have to be present in the court.
The 52-year-old Manson was performing at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion on Aug. 18, 2019, when the incident happened. The video camera person, who has not been identified, was working in the pit when Manson began his assaults.
Manson’s attorney has denied any assaultive behavior at the show.
Manson also faces separate allegations of rape and abuse from several women.
