Marilyn Manson has been fined and sentenced to community service after he was accused of spitting at a videographer, it has been claimed.

The Sweet Dreams singer, real name Brian Warner, faced accusations that he blew his nose on a videographer and spat at her during an alleged incident in 2019.

He was charged with two misdemeanor counts of simple assault.

According to AP, the 54-year-old pleaded no contest to the nose blowing charge in a plea agreement with prosecutors, who dismissed the other claim.

The outlet reports that the no contest plea means he does not admit guilt and will not contest the charge.

At a hearing earlier today, held at Belknap Superior Court in New Hampshire, he was fined $1,400, which was dropped down $200 to $1,200.

As well as this, he must partake in 20 hours of community service by February 4 and will have to notify local police of any performances in the area for two years, while also remaining arrest-free.

According to a police affidavit obtained by AP, Manson approached Susan Fountain at his concert – at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion on August 19, 2019 – and allegedly put his face close to her camera and spat a ‘big lougee’ at her.

She reportedly had saliva on both hands, before he returned once again, kneeled and blew his nose on her hands and arms.

He initially pleaded not guilty to both charges in 2021, and a trial was slated to begin in August.

AP reports that Manson identified himself to the court as Brian Warner during today’s hearing, and answered ‘yes’ when the judge asked if he understood the proceedings, but made no other statement.

Fountain was not present in court, but a victim impact statement, via, read: ‘For me, I’m a professional person and I’ve been in this industry for 30 years. 

‘I’ve worked for a lot of companies, and in all the years I’ve worked with people, I’ve never been humiliated or treated like I was by this defendant. 

‘For him to spit on me and blow his nose on me was the most disgusting thing a human being has ever done. 

‘I understand this was not a big criminal charge to begin with, but I was hoping that the defendant would receive a sentence that would make him think twice before doing something like this again.’
