Marilyn Manson pleads not guilty to spitting on a videographer in 2019
Marilyn Manson faces a misdemeanor charge stemming from an assault case in 2019. The charges were filed by a videographer who claims Manson spat and blown his nose at her during a concert she was working on, but Manson’s lawyers have pleaded not guilty on his behalf.
According to a report of Billboard, videographer Susan Fountain claims she was working in the pit at one of Marilyn Manson’s concerts in New Hampshire in 2019 when he leaned over and threw a “big lougee” at her, slapping her face and hands with saliva. Fountain then claims he approached her a second time and blew his nose in her direction, forcing her to stop working and wash her hands in the bathroom.
Fountain then filed two assault charges against Manson for the incident. Manson transformed into a cop in July on a pending warrant related to the charges. If convicted, Manson faces less than a year in prison and fines of up to $ 2,000.
Of course, that’s not the only assault charge Manson faces right now. Several women have recently come forward and accused the musician of horrific acts of sexual assault. Actress Evan Rachel Wood led the charges, detailing allegations of abuse and harassment she faced during a relationship with him.
