Shock rocker Marilyn Manson has revealed his most ridiculous arrest - for tearing his own genitals off.

The TAINTED LOVE singer was arrested in Italy after someone at his concert said he dismembered himself and he had to prove he was still intact to the police.

He says, "In Rome last year I was arrested becasue someone said I tore off my genitals and threw them into the crowd.

"They demanded I unbutton my trousers and show them they were still there. I said, 'Be my guest.'"
