Lamb of God Singer Released from Prague Prison: Randy Blythe Gets Bail, Still Faces Manslaughter Charges


Days after being arrested in Prague and charged with manslaughter, Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe has been released from a Czech jail, reports. The singer appeared in court earlier today, and while weekend bank closures kept him from raising the 4 million Koruna — or $200,000 — required for bail, the rocker will have until Monday to pay up.

Blythe’s manslaughter charge stems from the death of a fan following a May 2010 concert in Prague. Prosecutors claim the singer hit or pushed a 19-year-old male, who suffered a brain injury and died two weeks later.

Yesterday, the band’s publicists issued a statement absolving Blythe of guilt and insisting there was no fight during the concert.

“This incident deals with a fan that three times during the concert jumped the barricade and rushed Randy during the performance,” the statement reads. “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.”

Lamb of God guitarist Mark Morton took to Twitter following the hearing, writing, “Today just turned into a FANTASTIC day!!!”
