Manson Charged: Indecency

Italian authorities surround shock rocker after show
Posted Feb 8, 2001 at 12:00am
After his show at Rome's Palaghiaccio -- the tenth stop on the European leg of his Guns, God and Government tour -- Marilyn Manson was surrounded by twenty policemen and briefly detained by Italian authorities on indecent exposure charges.

The very next night in Bologna, Manson was charged with a separate instance of indecent exposure, this one related to a June 20, 1999 concert at the Imola Heineken Jammin' Festival in Imola, Italy.

Both charges stem from Manson's butt-baring stage attire, which apparently irked Italian authorities. No court dates have been set, no tour dates have been cancelled and no comments have been issued by Manson or his label, Interscope.
