Lamb of God’s Randy Blythe officially indicted for manslaughter

Yes, I know Lamb of God are not a punk rock band, but Randy Blythe (who got busted last summer) is now officially indicted for manslaughter in the Czech Republic.

Although Blythe was paroled last August and issued a statement in the same month, he State’s Attorney’s Office in Prague made the official indictment last Friday, which indicates that will likely be a full trial in the near future. If convicted, Blythe will have to face up to at least five-to-ten years in prison.

Lamb of God’s manager Larry Mazer on the situation:

“After a three month investigation, the prosecutor in the Czech Republic has decided to move forward with an indictment of Randy Blythe on the charge of manslaughter with intent to cause bodily harm. Obviously, we intend to fight vigorously against these charges as we feel that in no way did Randy intend to cause bodily harm on the young fan who subsequently died from injuries sustained at the show. As he has stated previously, Randy intends to go to Prague to defend himself at trial.”

Lamb of God singer released from Czech prison

As you all probably know, Lamb Of God’s singer, Randy Blythe, was imprisoned in June for allegedly killing a fan in an on-stage altercation in 2010. Well, now he’s out and on the way home.

Blabbermouth.net reports that he paid the bail, which was recently raised to 8 million Czech Koruna (roughly $400,000) and will have to return to the Czech Republic in the future to stand trial.

Lamb Of God singer reportedly denied 400,000 bail from Czech prison

As you all probably know, Lamb Of God‘s singer, Randy Blythe, was imprisoned for allegedly killing a fan in an on-stage altercation in 2010. According to a recent report from The Gauntlet, our recent report on Blythe being released form Czech prison on bail of just under $200k was a little less than accurate. They are reporting that Blythe is still in prison and was recently denied his newly paid bail of $400k due it being challenged by the prosecutor.

Here’s a little info from the report on what’s happening with the case:
What happens now is that on Friday (July 27, 2012), the prosecutor will submit to the judge a reason for the bail denial. At that point, the judge has five days to rule, and another five days for it to be written or published to the court. The judges ruling at this point will be final and unless charges are formally filed, Randy will be free to leave the Czech Republic without condition on bail. 

We’ll keep you updated as more details surrounding this extremely odd case unfold.

Lamb Of God singer facing charges for allegedly killing fan in on-stage altercation (no joke)

Well this story has been swirling around the music news blogs all day so while its not about a punk band, I think it will still be interesting to most readers. Looks like front man Randy Blythe of metal act Lamb of God has been charged with manslaughter after a fan died following an altercation with Blythe on fucking STAGE in Prague.  The incident happened in 2010 and is only now catching up with the band.

Reports of the incident vary depending on the source.  The band’s management claims that after a fan bum rushed the stage Blythe only pushed the fellow back into the audience where he unfortunately hit his head, putting him into a coma where he died 2 weeks later.

“Under no circumstances was there a fight of any kind involved. This incident deals with a fan that three times during the concert jumped the barricade and rushed Randy during the performance. It is alleged that the third time, security was not able to reach him and that Randy pushed him back into the audience where supposedly he fell and hit his head.”

A report from a fan who was actually in attendance describes the singer’s role as a bit more involved.  Translated from a Czech blog:

“At first Randy hit him a lot, then Randy jumped on him to hold him down while he continued singing? When the fan got up, Randy took him by the hair and threw down quite quickly.”

Either way, the event is obviously tragic but there are lots of conflicting reports floating around.  I’m sure this will blow over for Blythe.  I mean, before you pass judgement yourself, just ask yourself, does this really look like the face of a killer?
