MARILYN MANSON Slapped With Civil Lawsuit Over Michigan Incident

MARILYN MANSON has been hit with a civil lawsuit by the security guard at the center of the singer's criminal court case. 26-year-old Joshua Keasler, a former Clarkston, Michigan security guard filed the suit Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Detroit, alleging assault and battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, gross negligence and wanton misconduct stemming from on incident that occurred last July 30th when MANSON allegedly rubbed his sweaty, G-string-clad crotch on Keasler's head during a concert at the DTE Energy Music Theatre.

The suit, which seeks more than $75,000, claims Keasler was grabbed from behind by MANSON, who then "proceeded to improperly and/or sexually touch, restrain and/or assault [Keasler]." When the guard unsuccessfully tried to free himself, the suit says, MANSON continued to "gyrate his hips, thighs and/or pubic area against [Keasler's] head, neck and/or face."
