Randy Blythe, lead singer of Lamb Of God, has been released on bail following his arrest for the manslaughter of a fan in the Czech Republic this week.
We reported on Friday that Randy was arrested in Prague over the 2010 incident when the band returned this week for a tour.
The 41-year old singer is alleged to have killed the fan in a brawl at a Lamb Of God concert in Prague on May 24, 2010. The 19-year lapsed into a coma and died 14 days later from injuries from the fight.
Blythe could face 10 years in prison if he is found guilty.
A statement released from Lamb Of God says:
Lamb of God management will be issuing an official statement on Monday regarding the charges made against singer Randy Blythe. As no formal charges have yet been made and the case is only in the investigation stages, it would be premature to make an official statement filled with false truths or innuendos.
Having said that, management wished to address today one false piece of information that has been included in many of the news stories released so far. 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.
Again, until the investigation is concluded this weekend, nothing more will be released, but clarity and the facts needed to be addressed on this one reported point which is totally inaccurate.
