Bean Burpee, the chief of the Gilford Police Department, stated in an electronic mail on Tuesday evening.

Chief Burpee stated that Mr. Manson, his agent and his authorized representatives had been notified a number of occasions of the warrant however that Mr. Manson had made no effort to return to New Hampshire to reply the costs. He stated the police division was making the warrant public now “simply because we’ve been attempting to clear the warrant since it was issued,” with no response from Mr. Manson or his lawyer.
He added that “in light of recent other allegations” — a reference to accusations of sexual assault and home abuse from former romantic companions of Mr. Manson’s — the authorities wished Mr. Manson “to take care of his business” in New Hampshire “so that he and we can move forward.”
Mr. Manson was dropped by his document label and his brokers and was lower from tv visitor roles after Esmé Bianco, an actress recognized for her work on “Game of Thrones,” filed a lawsuit in April wherein she accused Mr. Manson of sexual assault and sexual battery and described a sequence of violent incidents that she stated had occurred once they lived collectively in 2011.

A lawyer for Mr. Manson, Howard King, stated in an electronic mail: “It is no secret to anyone who has attended a Marilyn Manson concert that he likes to be provocative on stage, especially in front of a camera. This misdemeanor claim was pursued after we received a demand from a venue videographer for more than $35,000 after a small amount of spit came into contact with their arm. After we asked for evidence of any alleged damages, we never received a reply.”
He added, “This whole claim is ludicrous, but we remain committed to cooperating with authorities, as we have done throughout.”
Mr. Manson denied Ms. Wood’s claims broadly in an Instagram post: “Obviously, my art and my life have long been magnets for controversy, but these recent claims about me are horrible distortions of reality,” he wrote. “My intimate relationships have always been entirely consensual with like-minded partners. Regardless of how — and why — others are now choosing to misrepresent the past, that is the truth.”
