Marilyn Manson received more than fan applause after his Lethbridge concert Saturday night.
Early Sunday morning, the shock rocker was at the city’s Denny’s location in the Sandman Hotel, when an altercation occurred and a man allegedly punched Manson in the face.
Denny’s manager Sankha Sendanayake told the Herald that the incident occurred about 2:40 a.m. Sunday. He wasn’t working at the time, but came in later that morning to review video surveillance footage, as per a request by police.
“When I checked the video, I saw that a couple of people were talking with him (Manson),” Sendanayake said.
“Suddenly, one guy is punching him (Manson). That is what is in the video. The reason why he’s fighting with him — no idea. We don’t know why it happened.”
Staff Sgt. Jason Walper of the Lethbridge Regional Police Service confirmed there was an altercation involving three people, and that LRPS officers responded at 2:45 a.m. Sunday to a disturbance at Denny’s. He said there were minor injuries.
“No charges have been laid and no other information is going to be provided at this time,” Walper said, adding that because no charges have been filed, LRPS would not release any names.
Manson’s management had not responded to an email from the Herald seeking comment.
Manson was in Lethbridge for a stop on his “Hell Not Hallelujah” tour, which drew about 2,500 people to the Enmax Centre Saturday night. He was scheduled to perform in Saskatoon Monday night.
According to several unconfirmed online posts, Manson, 46, suffered a broken nose and went to Chinook Regional Hospital.
