Lamb of God, Randy Blythe Arrest: Band Publicist Releases Update
Earlier today, Noisecreep reported on the arrest of Lamb of God singer Randy Blythe on manslaughter charges in Prague, Czech Republic. The arrest stemmed from an onstage altercation that happened in May of 2010 when a fan reportedly leapt on the stage during the band's May 24 show in Prague and engaged in a physical scuffle with Blythe. The fan ultimately died as a result of the injuries he sustained, which lead to Blythe being arrested and charged two years later.
Adrenaline PR's Maria Ferrero, Lamb of God's publicist, has issued the following update on the arrest:
"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."
