Police share brilliant ‘apology’ for handcuffing Marilyn Manson

The police officer 'only listened to Enya and a little bit of Oasis'

Police have issued a brilliant ‘joke’ apology after Marilyn Manson shared photos of himself being handcuffed at a festival earlier this week.

The ‘God Of Fuck’ was performing at Impact Music Festival on Sunday, where he shared a video declaring that he ‘doesn’t like drugs’ along with a clip of a policeman handcuffing him backstage.

I don’t like the drugs…

Now, Bangor Maine Police Department have shared a Facebook post revealing that it was a joke set up by Manson himself:

“In the interest of saving us a whole lot of call-backs, Marilyn Manson was merely handcuffed and released immediately thereafter.

“Officer Curtis Grenier, typically listening to only Enya, and a little bit of Oasis, was posted backstage during the Impact Music Festival. He did not recognize Mr. Manson without his stage makeup- our apologies.

“Later, when approaching Rob Zombie, Officer Grenier was overheard saying, “I have never seen him in the Walking Dead, so I don’t know what the big deal is.”

“Grenier has been spoken to and relieved of back-stage concert related duties for the foreseeable future. The Chief has determined that Grenier can work backstage during Lord of the Dance or anything related to Disney.

“Keep your hands to yourself, leave other people’s things alone, and be kind to one another.

“We will be here.

“With the Beautiful People”

Manson has now resumed performing on the ‘Twins Of Evil Tour’ with Rob Zombie after cancelling a show due to an ‘unforeseen illness‘ last week.

Having been touring in support of his acclaimed 2017 album ‘Heaven Upside Down‘, last month saw Manson deliver a blistering performance at Download Festival.
