Marilyn Manson posted bail after turning himself in on an arrest warrant over two counts of Class A misdemeanor Simple Assault, TMZ and Billboard report.

The warrant, which was reported in May, was issued by the Gilford Police Department in New Hampshire. In stems from an incident that took place during Manson’s show at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion in 2019, during which the musician, born Brian Warner, allegedly spit on a videographer in the pit area.

At the time the news broke, Warner’s lawyer told Pitchfork that the claims were “ludicrous,” but assured that the rocker would “remain committed to cooperating with authorities.”

In June, Gilford PD announced that Warner had agreed to address the warrant by turning himself over to the Los Angeles Police Department. According to TMZ and Billboard, he did just that last Friday, and was released on personal-recognizance bail, the conditions of which included not committing any crimes, appearing at all necessary court proceedings, and refraining from contacting the alleged victim.

Warner, meanwhile, has been embroiled in personal and legal issues over the past few months after several women came forward accusing him of abuse and sexual assault, including ex-fiancée Evan Rachel Wood, who alleged that he had “horrifically abused [her] for years.”

Four different women — including actor Esmé Bianco, model Ashley Morgan Smithline and Warner’s former assistant Ashley Walters — have filed lawsuits against him.

Warner has denied allegations as “horrible distortions of reality.”
