Randy Blythe acquitted by Czech court
Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe has been acquitted by a Czech court of causing the death of a fan at a concert in Prague in 2010.
“I have been found not guilty,” Randy Blythe revealed on an Instagram.
He added: “I am a free man.”
Randy Blythe, 42, was accused of manslaughter after he pushed Daniel Nosek, 19, off the stage.
Daniel Nosek injured his head when he fell and died weeks later.
The presiding judge ruled his actions had not constituted a crime.
However, prosecutors have lodged an appeal.
They are seeking a prison sentence of five years for randy Blythe, who was arrested at Prague airport in June as the band returned for another gig.
Randy Blythe, who was subsequently bailed, said he had only learned about the fan’s death, and the resulting prosecution, when he was arrested.
In his latest posting, Randy Blythe asked fans to “please remember the family of Daniel Nosek in your thoughts and prayers in this difficult time”.
Randy Blythe’s Virginia-based metal band Lamb of God were formed in 1990 and received Grammy nominations in 2007 and 2011.
