Lamb of God Singer Randy Blythe Arrested in Prague, Accused of Manslaughter
Metal Sucks has translated a Czech Republic news story, reporting that the singer’s arrest stemmed from an onstage altercation from May of 2010. A fan reportedly leapt on the stage during the band’s May 24 show in Prague and engaged in a physical altercation 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.
The band canceled its performance at the Rock Café in Prague last night. Though Lamb of God’s channels have been quiet, they sent out a single tweet “#FreeRandyBlythe” just last evening.
Maria Ferrero, a spokesperson for the band, tells The Examiner that Randy has been “wrongly accused.” Lawyers are dealing with the situation and his team expects that he will be “fully exonerated.”
