“Improper Contact”

Marilyn Manson doesn’t seem to be able to leave security guards alone:

    A security guard is suing Manson for an incident at Minneapolis’ Historic Orpheum Theater in October 2000, when Manson crouched at the end of the stage, pulled the guard’s head back toward his crotch and gyrated.

    Lawyers for David Diaz, who is seeking more than $75,000, said during closing arguments that publicity from the event has been humiliating.

    ….Manson’s counsel also used testimony from several of Diaz’s friends to argue that the case didn’t gain Diaz notoriety until he filed the lawsuit.

    ….In June 2002, Manson pleaded no contest to being a disorderly person and assault and battery in a similar case stemming from a concert in Clarkston, Mich.

    That case, too, involved a guard who alleged Manson made improper contact with him. Manson was ordered to pay fines and costs totaling $4,000. [AP]

Marilyn, maybe you should inform the guards before the show that you may be accosting them, and perhaps even get permission to do so. That would seem to preclude these kinds of “misunderstandings.”

But hey, it could be worse – my son liked him at Ozzfest.
