Marilyn Manson will pay a $1,400 fine and serve 20 hours of community service for blowing his nose on a concert videographer.

The 54-year-old Manson – real name Brian Warner – pleaded no contest to two counts of simple assault for the 2019 incident, when he spit and blew his nose onto videographer Susan Fountain during a show in New Hampshire.

Fountain was not in court, but submitted the following statement that was read aloud.

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 the way 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.

Manson has dealt with a host of legal issues in recent years, including a series of lawsuits over alleged sexual abuse from multiple women. Most of those lawsuits have been settled or dismissed.
