Charles Manson is now a model prisoner … because wreaking havoc behind bars is apparently a young man’s game.
Sources with the California Department of Corrections tell TMZ … The soon-to-be 83-year-old murderer hasn’t violated prison rules since February 29, 2016 when guards found him in possession of a cell phone. A big no-no.
Prison officials believe Manson’s on a 20-month goody two-shoes streak simply because of old age and health complications.
But Manson has not always been a model prisoner … far from it. TMZ’s obtained Manson’s rap sheet in prison … and he’s tested patience for decades. There are over 100 infractions that go back to 1972, including …
October 1972 — refused to shave
July 1973 — assault on staff
January 1975 — spitting and threatening staff
June 1977 — Striking an officer
July 1978 — Assault on correctional officer
July 1985 — Possession of a hacksaw blade
July 1993 — Possession of a stabbing instrument
Sept. 1995 — Threatening to kill a police officer
April 1983 — Possession of marijuana
April 1995 — Trafficking narcotics
June 2015 — Refusal to provide urine sample
February 1993 — Assault and battery on non-prisoner
