In July 2001, during a show in Michigan, Manson was charged with criminal sexual assault after he allegedly rubbed his pelvis on a security guard's head. Michigan prosecutor told reporters, "Manson is charged with one count of criminal sexual conduct in the fourth degree, which is an unlawful touching of another person in a sexual manner and one count of assault and battery for him spitting on a security guard, who, ironically was there for his protection.

The prosecutor added, "During an act of the performance, Marilyn Manson, who was wearing a G-string, began to rub his genital area and masturbate over his clothing. As he approached the security guard, who was facing towards the audience to keep people off the stage, he then spit on him and then sat down and wrapped his legs around him in a headlock if you will, and then began to gyrate rubbing his genitals against the head and back and neck area of the security guard."
