Lamb of God Vocalist Indicted on Manslaughter Charges After Fan Falls From Stage.
An update on this story: Lamb of God Vocalist Indicted on Manslaughter Charges after Fan Falls from Stage.
A Czech court has acquitted the lead vocalist, Randy Blythe, of Lamb of God on charges that he caused the death of a fan.
The hearing had accused Blythe, 42, of causing the death of the 19-year old fan by pushing him off the stage at a 2010 concert. The Czech media purportedly portrayed Randy Blythe as the member of a ‘dark’ band and suggested that his defence – pushing a fan back who leaped at him towards the stage – was an aggressive manslaughter.
Blythe had always claimed he would not hideout under Western protection and would “go back [to the Czech Republic] and face this charge”
Randy Blythe posted the following statement regarding the exoneration:
"I have been found not guilty & acquitted of all charges against me. I am a free man. Please remember the family of Daniel Nosek in your thoughts & prayers in this difficult time. I only wish for them peace.
Thank you for your support
