Lamb Of God’s Randy Blythe Appears In Court, Bail To Be Posted
Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe was in court this morning and appears to have been released from custody in Prague, CZE. Blythe will be posting $200,000 bail, his alleged yearly income, for his freedom. However, he will not be able to pay until Monday, due to the banks being closed for the weekend.
Blythe was detained on charges of manslaughter. The charges stem from a 2010 show the band played in Prague. That show saw a 19 year old fan identified as Daniel N. reportedly jump on the stage a number of times, causing Blythe to eventually push him back; where he subsequently fell into the audience and hit his head. The 19 year old suffered internal bleeding from the incident and fell into a coma, dying 14 days later.
Video footage and photos of Blythe in court, along with photos of the victim, can be found on the Czech publication, Blesk.cz.
Lamb Of God guitarist Mark Morton has seemingly confirmed the news of his bandmates impending release, tweeting earlier today:
“Today just turned into a FANTASTIC day!!!”
