Marilyn Manson has completed 20 hours of community service, months after he was sentenced for allegedly blowing his nose on a camerawoman at a New Hampshire concert in 2019, a source close to his legal team confirms to PEOPLE.

The rocker, 55, spent his hours with the Windsor Club of Glendale, which rents space to Alcoholics Anonymous and Al-Anon, according to a certificate of completion filed by the Assistance League of Los Angeles in a New Hampshire court on Jan. 30, the Associated Press reported.

In September, Manson (real name Brian Warner) was fined over $1,400, with $200 suspended as part of the deal, and sentenced to 20 hours of community service. He also must steer clear of arrests and inform local police if he performs in New Hampshire.

The sentencing came after he pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor simple assault charge in July. As part of a negotiated plea, Manson reportedly had a second misdemeanor simple assault charge dropped by the prosecutor.

The alleged incident happened in 2019 during a show at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion on Manson’s Hell Never Dies tour with Rob Zombie, and Manson eventually turned himself in on the misdemeanor charges in 2021 in Los Angeles.

During the performance, AP reported based on a police affidavit, Manson walked over to videographer Susan Fountain and allegedly spit a "big lougee" at her before blowing his nose in her direction later in the show. Video footage reportedly showed Manson pointing and laughing at her as she walked away.

Fountain pressed charges against Manson in 2021, and in September, submitted a statement that was read aloud in court, in which she reportedly called the incident “the most disgusting thing a human being has ever done.”

In May 2021, the Gilford Police Department made it public that there was an arrest warrant out for Manson, and three concert attendees, including a security guard, told PEOPLE that they’d seen Manson spit and “shoot his snot” at the camerawoman.

"He was spitting everywhere and one time it got on her camera so she wiped it off and looked semi-irritated," one attendee told PEOPLE. "I think her final straw is he got on the floor, got within 2-3 feet of her and hacked a giant snot rocket at her, not the camera. She was pissed off and disgusted so she stormed off and he just laughed."

At the time, Manson's attorney said the misdemeanor claim — which can carry a jail sentence of up to one year and a $2,000 fine, according to the police department — was pursued after the camerawoman asked for $35,000 for the effects on her camera equipment.

"It is no secret to anyone who has attended a Marilyn Manson concert that he likes to be provocative on stage, especially in front of a camera," King said in a statement to PEOPLE. "This misdemeanor claim was pursued after we received a demand from a venue videographer for more than $35,000 after a small amount of spit came into contact with their arm. After we asked for evidence of any alleged damages, we never received a reply."

He added, "This whole claim is ludicrous, but we remain committed to cooperating with authorities, as we have done throughout."
